The Frame Routine is a strategy designed to assist students as they organize topics, main ideas and details about reading assignments. This technique includes a basic hierarchic graphic organizer called a "Frame" that can be used to help students think and talk about the key topic and essential related information.
Personally, I use the Framing Routines to figure out what I want to say, and how I want to say it so my students will know it. It keeps my "Sage on the Stage" time limited to what fits onto 2-3 pages (about 45 minutes of directed class discussion). This product includes the completed frame, and the student guide blanked except for vocabulary, scaffolding questions, and graphics already filled in.
