Reflection: Famous Father Kino - Section 2: Reading Two Texts


To help make the note taking process seem easier, I will have student create a T Chart on lined paper. They will label each side, book and article. As they read, they can jot down notes that correspond to each side. 

To make this process more fun, I will put students into pairs. I think the best would be to pair students that can be of most benefit to each other as a team. One student will read their book and take notes, while the other reads the article and takes notes. Then they will switch and do the process over with the other text. 

Afterward the pair can compare their notes, and share the facts they determined most important. This will my students with special needs. They will be able to determine what was important and have someone to talk to about their thinking, reading, and writing.
