Reflection: Becoming a Better Reader: Creating Goals for Reading Success - Section 3: Guided and Independent Practice


While students are filling out the checklist, I would go around and check in with students that seem to be having difficulty coming up with ideas or being specific. Especially if I noticed students who were having a difficult time during the class practice. 

I might ask students questions like:

- "When do you want to accomplish this?" "What date?"

- "Maybe there are baby steps to this bigger goal that we might be able to use?"

- "If you are going to read 600 pages by the end of the month, then how many will you read per week? per day?"

This helps students think about it as daily work towards the goal.
