This unit is jam packed with ideas for direct instuction in teaching reading strategies. It includes 6 strategy posters with lessons and 2 worksheets for each of the following strategies:Predict/ Inference, Visualize, Questioning, Word attack (decoding), Connnect 2 text (prior knowledge), & Summarizing. There is also a "what do good readers do" packet that you can go over in class and then send home for parents. I use this the first two weeks we come back to school to ensure that all students know the strategies and how to use them.
