Reflection: Illuminating Ilustrations - Section 2: Independent Practice


It was a good ideas to add questions that could only be found using the illustrations and captions. Students often complained they couldn't find the answers to the questions! Most of their reading has been narratives, so they are accustomed to focusing on the text only. I had to go back and specifically tell them they have to read the entire page. “READ EVERYTHING!” became my battle cry. At one point, I had to direct a group to circle the illustrations and captions whenever they turned the page to remind them to read them. Doing this consistently helped students to remember to look at the illustrations and captions because they give more information about the topic.
