Great activity for use with any assigned reading! Introduce effective research-based reading strategies in language students can understand. Thinking stems on bookmark are a great scaffolding tool for students to apply metacognitive strategies in their reading and self-monitor their comprehension of a text.
Great to use after modeling a think-a-loud and/or when teaching how and what to annotate. A modified version of the reading strategies log could be done with post-it notes.
