Reflection: High Expectations Looking at the Page Headers - Section 3: Guided Practice


I have taught this lesson many times, however, this is the first time I emphasized the page headings or their meaning to my students.  In the past I had my students read them like a title and quickly move on. Then while planning the lesson and trying to see it through common core eyes, I realized the page headings were more than titles: they helped students focus on the details and learn more about the main idea.
