Reflection: Grappling with Complexity I can! - Section 2: Interact with text/concept


When I work through predicting with a text, the message I want to send to students is that we are actively thinking about the text as we read.  Many students think that reading is simply 'word calling' and I want students to know that reading is much more than that!  

Making predictions and confirming/modifying them also stresses the use of text in meaning-making.  I want students to use the text for understanding and this is  a structured way to practice text dependency.
