Reflection: Modeling African Elephants Adaptations Help Them Survive - Section 4: Explore


My modeling helps my students become more accustomed to annotating articles themselves. The free chrome extension, EVERNOTE clearly, is a wonderful tool for modeling how to focus on the content when reading. By using this tool, I can model, and then ask students to highlight using the tool and share out to the group. They love using it, as do my students when we are close reading or annotating articles.
