Reflection: Exit Tickets “What’s the Big Idea?” Determining What the Author is Trying to Convey - Section 3: Guided Reading


I wanted to assess whether or not students actually found what the author was really telling them through a question. For most of the unit, we’ve been focusing  on strategies, so I wanted students to apply the strategy to answering a question explicit to the text and whether or not they had really determined what was important to the “big idea”.
