Description

Use these before-, during-, and post-reading strategy activities to help your students become independent readers. Handouts require minimal, if any, teacher preparation, and are for use in multiple content areas including English, social studies, science, and other disciplines. With these strategies, you will meet the needs of diverse students while engaging them in reading.

There is often a misconception that with the Common Core, teachers should no longer teach reading strategies. However, in order for students to meet the rigorous expectations of the Common Core, they still need scaffolding at the beginning of their learning; gradually, this support is withdrawn to allow students to achieve independence.

This resource includes the following eight research-based reading strategies: Stay & Stray, Text Evidence Anticipation Activity, Universal Ideas Anticipation Guide, Four Corners, Boxing, Numbered Heads, Alphabet Review, and Written Conversation. Each strategy is explained in simple terms with answers to the following questions:

  • What is it?
  • How does it work?
  • How is it related to Common Core?

Additionally, handouts and examples for use are provided for most of the strategies.
