An Interactive Strategy for Reading Assignments

Jill Spencer offers a reading strategy that can be used in ALL subjects, as well as ways to differentiate the activity based on skill level and/or interest.  PLUS, there’s a link to a google search that lists other ways teachers have implemented this strategy.

Student: “I don’t get it.”

Teacher: “What don’t you understand?”

Student: “Any of it!”

Sound familiar? When it comes time for class discussion about a reading assignment, teachers are often disappointed by the lack of student participation. The kids don’t have a clue what they should say and desperately hope the teacher doesn’t call on them.
