Student interaction with text, along with questioning and book discussions increases the rigor and deepens comprehension. Kylene Beers and Robert Probst in their bestselling book “Notice and Note,” state that rigor is a “characteristic of our behavior with that text.” Rigor resides in interaction with the text. Students need to realize their questions are more valuable than their answers.
This product features a set of task cards to use for facilitating student led discussions during guided reading and a literacy center game for partners for independent student led book discussions. A student listening/speaking self assessment is included.
This product is perfect for increasing rigor in your guided reading small and whole group activities. It can be used multiple times as it is not specific to any book. NOTE: This is a fiction edition, suitable for any fiction text.
This product aligns with Common Core State Standards related to Speaking and Listening.
Any suggestions for this or future products are always welcome. Feedback is clearly appreciated.
