GO Charts are a strategy that teachers have used in their classrooms during whole group instruction while reading a text.
The "As I GO Chart" is designed based off of this strategy, but it puts the power in the hands of the students. While reading a novel or a text, the students will fill out their As I GO Charts with predictions, character traits, vocabulary & unfamiliar words, schema connections, and questions. Students can work individually or with a partner to fill out their charts as they practice using research-based reading strategies. The graphic organizer format of the chart helps students to organize their thinking and fully understand & reflect on what they're reading.
