Reflection: Gradual Release Huh?! Asking and Answering Questions from the Text - Section 2: Guided Practice


There are so many ways to read aloud a book. Sometimes I show it under the document camera as a I read so that everyone in the class can see it. Other times, I show the pictures and the text, especially if I'm noting something that is happening in the text. This time, I chose not to show them the book at all but instead had them listen to the text as I read it. I do this in order to help them focus on their understanding and the questions that are popping up in their head rather than be distracted by the pictures or reading ahead.
