Directed Reading Thinking Activity DRTA
A DRTA is a during-reading comprehension strategy used to elicit student understanding by taking an active role in the meaning making process. Using a DRTA, students make predictions about the story and work to confirm or reject these predictions as they work their way through the text.
Additionally, this lesson employs before and after-reading activities to further enhance student learning.
This DRTA, specifically, is social studies based, as the content discuses ethnic heritage. The text centers around the Latino culture.
