Why use anticipation guides?
-They teach students to make predictions, anticipate the text, give a purpose, activate prior knowledge, and verify their predictions during and post-reading.
-They connect new information to prior knowledge and build curiosity about a new topic.
-They help students summarize as they read.
- Common Core Standards
- I will statements included for each lesson.
- Key concepts presented in the text
- Structured as a series of statements with which the students can choose to agree or disagree.
- Stimulate students' interest in a topic and set a purpose for reading
