PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this popcorn activity, the teacher hands out cards to individuals or groups of students, giving them responsibility for one element of the THIEVES previewing strategy. Students orally discuss or write their answers to the 2 or 3 questions on their cards. When groups are ready to present, the teacher calls out each letter of THIEVES, and students “pop up” to share their information with the class.

Several suggestions are given to use the activity with whole-class, small groups, or individuals. The file includes color copies and black and white copies of the popcorn cards.

THIEVES is a nonfiction text previewing strategy that asks students to preview the Title, Headings, Introduction, Every First Sentence (of each paragraph or section), Visuals & Vocabulary, Ending Questions, and Summary, before they begin reading a textbook chapter. Although the strategy was originally designed to preview textbook chapters, it could also be used to preview informational text in a reading anthology, although some modifications may need to be made.
