Reflection: Modeling Inventive Investigating: Digging Into Informational Texts to Ask and Answer Questions - Section 2: Experience Learning


I can't emphasize enough how important modeling is for my students.  Even in this lesson, where I know my students have had exposure and experience with formulating and answering questions in prior lessons, I still go ahead and model at the start of the lesson.  It's so important to me that my students feel confident in doing whatever it is that I'm asking them to do, and modeling for them on a regular basis is a great way to help them gain that confidence!
