Reflection: Student Grouping What Do YOU Want to Know? Inferring to Answer Self-Generated Questions - Section 4: Independent Practice and Share


This lesson can feel tough for some kids. The need to utilize multiple skills such as recalling background knowledge, coming up with questions before and during reading, looking for answers, using text features correctly, and inferring meaning. Therefore, I ask the students to continue using the same book with the questions that I've already written down rather than asking them to read any nonfiction book of their choice. 

That means that you will need multiple copies of your read aloud. If that is too difficult, you might look for articles or a collection of books from the same topic as your read aloud. That way, students don't have to show mastery in all of the skills listed above.
