Reflection: Grappling with Complexity Preparing To Ask Questions - Section 3: Go to Work


I had to take a step back in this section. The questions on the interview form were written to elicit adult responses from the students' subjects. Some of the vocabulary I used was Tier 3 words - "memorable" "experience" "historic" "technology."  Oops! I took time out to pair skilled above level readers with at and below level readers to partner read. "I read the section, you read the same section."  I sent them off in partners to do that. (Provided some movement.) Then I called them back whole group and we choral read the whole document. I realized they needed "Miles on the tongue" with this unfamiliar format and tough words before they went out to use this as a tool.
