Reflection: Flexibility 'I Know! I Know!' Connect to the Text and Share Your Perspective! - Section 3: Teachers' Turn


This is a nice video that I found after I taught this lesson.  Its an overview of the kinds of transitions that readers use and will help the kids understand how connecting helps us understand better. I think the lesson would have been stronger to give the students an overview of the reading strategy so they could realize the ways they can use this skill.

Since connecting is explicitly in the Common Core standards, I've had to rethink how I teach this skill.  I used to teach connection as a reading strategy alone, but I never linked it to character's point of view.  Now, when I teach these lessons with the Standards in mind, I realize it makes good sense to work on strategies while addressing the other skills in the Common Core.
