Reflection: Routines and Procedures Roberto Clemente - A Man of His Word - Section 1: Creating the Purpose


Here's a video of the reading journals I use with my students. I changed to using these for a few reasons. One it gave me a way to teach students how to write down the questions and responding to them with strong evidence and opinions, two it gave them a reference to refer back to as they moved through text, and three it helped them to stay organized with their work. I show some sample pages from student journals. They bring these to their group meetings each time and we use them for our discussions and to help with areas of misconception that come up in our meeting times.
