Reading Strategy: Activate Prior Knowledge

Unit 1: Reading Strategies: Beginning of the Year
Lesson 2 of 15

Objective: SWBAT write down what they know about a particular subject to activate their prior knowledge.

Big Idea: To become a good reader we have to remind students that reading is thinking. Before we read a book or a chapter we have to think about what we already know. Many times activating what we know can be easy, and they need to practice activating it.
