When we read a text we can read a whole page and still not know what
we have read. Our students are the same way. Ask them!
This strategy was developed over 6 years with high school sophomores
and juniors. Students who were less than proficient, 75% of students
improved to proficient or above after 1 semester.
Strong readers improved by 20% and indicated when they didn't know
where to start reading, they remembered this process.
Diligently teach the strategy for a few weeks, then make it part of your
students' regularly weekly or monthly activities.
Use this strategy as a lead-in for Socratic seminar or debate!
