Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Red Riding Hood Smelled Like Apples - Imagine That ! (Lesson 2 of 4) - Section 4: Teacher's Turn


Take a little time to preview the book.  It need not be a long time (you don't want to distract from the joy of reading the text), but look at the cover, talk about the title and bring in the students' background knowledge. This preview brings all students to a common place and allows you to do some formative assessment. Perhaps you talk about the word 'rotten' and realize the kids are not all secure on the definition. Maybe students bring in an example of another story character who turned out to be 'rotten' too.  It's worth modeling this skill of previewing over and over again. Our students need to do this each time they pick up a book. If you make it a habit, you're adding value to the importance of this skill.
