This PowerPoint focuses on good reading strategies, starting with visuals, the "primary sources" that help students learn. This PowerPoint contains aerial views and pictures taken within the Forbidden City. Rather than give information about the Forbidden City, students look at the pictures and tell what they "notice," and start to make "inferences" about groups of pictures. Students also have a chance throughout the PowerPoint to ask questions about the Forbidden City.
Students will use their questions to do internet research, (the "leveled" sites are given), and there are choices of activities that students can choose to show what they learn.
