Reflection: Student Feedback So.. What Do You Think - Using Evaluative Questions with Literature - Section 5: Students Take a Turn


One of the big focuses in the Common Core Standards is that students use the text to verify answers.  I am very pleased to see that my students look and check back with the text for information. In this video, the student is using the text for spelling and ideas without prompting.

I use this discussion as a kind of formative assessment. When I check on students as they're working, I often ask "How do you know that?"  or "Where did you find that information?"  This is a kind of metacognitive thinking that makes readers skilled in comprehension.
