Product Description

Rationale: As educators, we want our students to become curious readers and independent thinkers. Introducing signposts as a reading strategy is an effective way to teach students how find meaningful passages and analyze them in meaningful ways.

Ever since I have begun using signposts in my classroom, I have found that they allow for much more organic discussions. As students move past the signpost identification phase, they begin demonstrating stronger analysis and generate their own text-based inferences, predictions and questions.

In this bundle, students will read signpost passages from J.K Rowling’s high-interest text, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone!

Recommended Teaching Strategy:

➢Read two chapters at a time in the novel, then hold a mini-lesson the following instructional day

➢Each mini-lesson handout is based on previously-read passages

➢Handouts include 2-3 signpost examples, allowing for modeling, guided practice and independent practice within each mini-lesson

➢Once signposts are introduced, students can continue tracking signposts on their graphic organizer (included!)
