Do you love teaching with novels and trade books? Are you looking for a way to keep your students actively engaged in their reading? Try my thinkmarks!
I designed this thinkmark for Jean Fritz's Shh! We're Writing the Constitution. The thinkmark divides the book into five manageable sections. Each section of the thinkmark provides students with:
- a reminder of the assigned pages
- a reading strategy to practice
- a specific way to use a sticky note to record their thinking while reading
- a brief response activity to facilitate thinking after reading
Use thinkmarks as discussion starters or a quick at-a-glance assessment, and help your students take responsibility for becoming active, engaged readers!
