Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Eyes Like a Camera - Section 2: Reading to Learn


Deciding on the main idea is easy for most of my students, it is now taking on the text and finding key details that support our idea. For this section, we discuss and talk it through.By talking out our ideas we can determine what is most relevant and what is just good to know. When I did this with my class the first two details were easy for them to choose. It was deciding on the final one where disagreements occurred. Often we stray from disagreements, but in this case a healthy disagreement makes students choose an opinion and try to support it to others to get their way.
