Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Recognizing Plot or Not - Section 2: Before Reading


Our school district is very big on Balanced Literacy and providing Guided Reading lessons for students at their instructional level. Within these lessons, I try to model for students how to actively read and think about what they are reading while reading. I do this through questioning. In almost every lesson, I provide students with a focus question to guide their reading. I also ask students to explain their answers to these questions as well as provide evidence that supports their conclusions.
