Reflection: Student Ownership "Arachne" - Section 2: Read "Arachne"


These metacognitive markers are the basics that students use repeatedly when reading.  However, marking the text is not limited to these steps.  As discussions progress, I add other questions that students are focusing upon to locate textual support; often they mark the text using various highlighter colors.

Social studies has taken on the use of these metacognitive markers, too.  This is beneficial to the students and the Language Arts department because students are realizing that reading occurs across the curriculum.  Our department is very thankful for social studies showing consistency in marking the text with students.
