This program was designed to promote literacy across all disciplines. Expert Reader provides instant scaffolding for all students and allows them to experience literacy from four points of view: the summarizer, the vocabulary teacher, the webmaster and the discussion director. Included you will find a detailed teacher overview, step-by-step directions, and handouts. If you are looking for ways to engage all of your students, build background knowledge, and infuse reading into your curriculum, look no further!
This worked ok for me. Students seemed a bit confused when trying to do their parts. I think it will get better with practice. I think it's something that should be used on a semi-regular basis in class for students to do well with this.
Thank you for the detailed feedback. Students will definitely improve with practice. I try to do an expert reader lit circle once every 2-3 weeks. I also save student work as examples for explaining the jobs to the students who need to see the "end product".
