My class and I came up with this acronym this year to replace the lengthy "RUNNERS". It is short and to the point and it really narrows the students' focus on what to do on reading passages.
SPREE stands for:
S- Scan the text (make predictions about the genre/topic)
P- Preview the questions (while circling key words)
R- Read while coding/annotating
E- Eliminate incorrect answer choices
E- Find all of your evidence in the text
This download includes a poster & book mark set. Each letter of SPREE has its own single page poster with the letter and what it stands for. This is great to keep up on a reading bulletin board all year!!
Please let me know if you have any questions!
