Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Researching Different Kinds of Evidence About Issues By Using Non-fiction Texts - Section 3: Independent Practice


The reason why the planning sheet has "Central Idea/Question" was for students to think through the questions they asked in order to devise a central idea. Some students were able to take their question and write down the central idea easily, others struggled. After about 5 minutes of independent instruction, I told the students, "If you can not think of a way to turn your question into a central idea, just jot down the question for now and your evidence." These students then became my small group after they finish their Internet research tomorrow.
