Reading Strategies: Introducing Schema
This three-day lesson plan follows the gradual-release model and includes bellwork ideas, reading tasks, and answer keys. First, you introduce the reading strategy with a teaser from "Canterbury Tales" and "Romeo and Juliet" with the point being that students might lack schema to understand Old and Middle English. Next, you model the strategy using an anchor text of song lyrics (Keith Urban's "John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16"). Students collaborate using the Walking Review strategy.

Then, students practice the strategy by collaborating in small groups with a second anchor text (Sharon Draper's "Panic"). The Numbered Heads Together strategy is used. Finally, students demonstrate what they have learned through independent practice with a third anchor text (Orson Scott Card's "Ender's Game").

Each fictional text gets students to activate schema, practice inference and questioning, and answer higher-level questions. Students need to have been introduced to forming text connections before using this lesson plan.

This lesson not only helps your students practice the reading strategies of schema, inference, and questioning, but it is also a great way to promote high-interest novels.

It follows my lessons on visualization, inference, and questioning.
