This task needs Internet access and puts a new spin on simple 'read and respond' tasks.
Utilising the kids news website www.dogonews.com, students select a news article to read. To assist with their complete understanding of the text, they draw on known reading strategies to help them.
Reading strategies used within this task are:
* Monitoring Meaning
* Making Connections
* Determining Importance
This task is most effective once all reading strategies have been taught.
Printables have been supplied. If printing is an issue, students can draw up all charts and tables themselves.
