Do you need another approach to teaching reading in the content area? If so, I have just the activity for you. You Make the Read (YMTR) is a quick activity that emphasizes literacy and writing while learning about course content. It can be completed in one 50 minute period. First, students read the passage/article included in this lesson and they will write “yes” or “no” questions that focus upon the most important parts of the article. Next, students are given time to quiz each other (using the questions they have developed) before facing off against the champ…..you the teacher! The teacher finishes the activity by reading students his/her questions. Students can use the questions they made, not the article, to help answers the questions you read them. This engaging lesson from my literacy series is always a lot of fun and part of every unit.
Everything you need is included with this lesson: directions, article, questions, and an answer key. This activity aligns easily to CCSS. You Make the Read is conducted in a way that allows for all students to be successful.
