Finding Meaning in nonfiction texts is a reading skill that many students struggle with. This short video course - aimed directly at students - models EXACTLY how students can find deeper meaning in nonfiction texts using engaging, leverageable, and powerful strategies.
Use the video as a teaching aid - or simply show the video DIRECTLY to your students, pausing at certain times while your students follow on with the steps given.
The approach in the video is the:'I do - We do - You do' - Show the stages of a typical lesson.
ALL SLIDES shown in the video are offered as supplementary material FREE with this video.
In addition - a follow-up link to a New York Times resource is provided
This video is the third of four in my powerful short NF reading strategies course on informational text. (Find these in my store -NF Craft and Structure Moves and NF Text Main Idea, Central Ideas, and Supporting Ideas & a final video full of even more highly engaging practice material that revisits all the skills.)This video can stand alone as a powerful teaching tool in its own right. However, you will find that the whole course - Effective Non-Fiction Reading Strategies: Video Lessons - is worth the investment.
Simply sit back and let this video do your teaching. I will be adding dozens of teaching videos similar to this one that uses this same approach to lesson delivery. 'I do - We do - You do'
There is a tiny bit of background noise for a few seconds in this video. Nowhere near enough to spoil the content. I wanted to let buyers know in advance.
