Reflection: Intervention and Extension Getting to Know the Reader: Using a Questionnaire to Assess Student Reading Life - Section 4: Independent


Some students will need guided suggestion to explain themselves on the questionnaire, especially at the beginning of the year. However, I try not to lead them too much so that I can get a sense of their writing skills as well.

For example, one of the questions is, "Why do you like reading?" Most students are not thoughtful enough to answer that they feel good when they read or they are good at it. So I help them with ideas. If they don't like reading, then maybe its because they struggle with sounding out words, hasn't found books they like, etc.

I also want to see if they can express themselves on their own so I try not to give them the exact sentence.
