Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Ooops! There's Some Rights We Didn't Think About! - Section 3: Creating the Poster



My students had some difficulty deciphering the meaning of the Bill of Rights.  It is a primary source document that is above the reading lexile level for many if not all of my students.  I supported student to understand the text by building some knowledge about what the Bill of Rights is and why it is important.  We broke the text down into meaningful chunks and discussed the "gist" of each section.  This was a great strategy to use with my struggling readers.
