Reflection: Lesson Planning Looking for the Answer: Using Strategies to Find Information in the Text - Section 1: Introduction and Modeling


I try to create lessons for teaching nonfiction reading that can be applied to any nonfiction text. I know that students will be reading a variety of nonfiction text at a variety of levels. I don't want to teach these lessons as a guided reading group. Therefore, any nonfiction text could be used with this lesson. However, its important to preview the text, prepare questions that a typical fourth grader would have while reading and find questions that require you to answering them using the different strategies in the lesson. This cannot be done on the fly. The text should be engaging but also leave room for many ways to retrieve information.
