Reflection: Checks for Understanding "Interacting With the Text" Day One - Section 3: Guided Practice


I like to let students work in groups or pairs first so I can get an idea of which students understand the strategy and which students need more help. I also think this approach allows students to feel comfortable in taking a risk at trying new strategies. Students really enjoyed this part of the lesson and i could hear a lot of discussions about the books. We have done several activities with main idea, but i like to give students several different ways to use a strategy.
