Reflection: Lesson Planning Detecting Text - Section 2: UNRAVELing an Article


I can't say enough about the power of the "Reading is thinking" banner! We end up referring to it almost daily - whether we are reading poetry, short stories, novels, nonfiction or during SSR (sustained silent reading time). Of course at first, I'm the one directing students attention to the sign and reminding of what it really means to read. However, it does not take long before the students get in on the action and bring it up for themselves or refer to it when helping out a friend.
