Push your readers to think and respond more deeply to texts through these prompts. Prompts include examining repeated text, "aha" moments for character realizations, challenging decisions and questions posed to characters, character flashbacks and understandings, and advice from wiser characters.
The graphic organizer included explains each strategy, how to identify it in texts, and prompts to support students in reaching deeper understandings.
The student graphic included is a blank organizer for students to identify the strategy they are using, quote the text and page number, and supply their own thinking. This organizer can be used to support students in turning this thinking work into a larger, more expansive response to the text.
