Reflection: Complex Tasks Notable Notes 1: Collaboratively Asking and Answering Questions Explicitly from the Text - Section 4: Demonstrate Skills


One of the key shifts in implementing the ELA CCSS is that students conversations that are evidence-based about the text.  In this lesson, when students are working together to answer their assigned question stem and reading closely to refer to the text as evidence, this is one way we can incorporate that shift into our lesson planning.  As a teacher, I feel good to know that my students didn't just read a book and move on, but instead, they're digging into the text and really learning how to learn what's important and what's not, and all the while, having conversations with the peers in the process!
