Description

Synthesizing Texts for Deeper Understanding is a unit of reading minilessons that will help nudge students into realizing that their thinking changes over the course of a text. As readers synthesize text, their thinking grows and evolves. This kind of thinking is beyond the text and will fuel the analytic response writing that is required of readers.

Key Teaching Points:

  • Readers monitor overall meaning of a text as they read and understand how their thinking grows.
  • Readers synthesize text to understand.
  • Readers extend their literal thinking to inferential thinking
