This 70 slides powerpoint is an interactive program to use with your students at the beginning of the year. It teaches them all about the different types of reading strategies:
Your students will walk through seven steps, including pretesting, watching videos about and learning of the different reading strategies, choosing answers to questions about the strategies and getting instant feedback, applying their reading strategy of choice to select readings, answering reading comprehension questions and getting instant feedback, and taking a post test. This product has a built in answer key, and when the students select their answers, the screen will tell them if they got the question wrong, or right!
This interactive experience allows your students to navigate through the screens using menu, next, help, and other functioning buttons, rather than the slide arrows.
This is a great way for students to gauge which strategies work best for them, and practice with those strategies to really get the feel of how they can help increase their understanding of a text.
