Reflection: Routines and Procedures They are the same?! - Section 2: Guided practice


This part of the lesson was only possible because I started laying the foundation for such an activity from the beginning of the year. From day one I have modeled and we have practiced how to review what a selection was about by skim reading, thinking about the pictures and having quiet conversations about them with a neighbor. At the beginning it was slow going, but now (2/3rds into the year) the scaffolding has paid off and we can spend some minutes reviewing a selection or a chapter in a textbook before doing an activity that will require critical thinking.
