Reflection: Student Feedback Reading Strategy: Checking for Understanding - Section 1: How do we Know What we Read?


At the beginning of the year, students are shocked at the transition to be made between third and fourth grade. They are beginning to grow up. In reading, they are beginning the transition to the adult reader they will become. Many student to this point have had very little practice with comprehension, and have focused so much on accuracy and fluency. At some points you would think they would come in as experts on those fluency and accuracy strategies, but alas, they do not.


This is a horrible sound to hear. They are nine/ ten and already have judged something they barely have learned to do as not liking.
