David Letterman may use his Top Ten to entertain us... but I use it with my students to help them identify, synthesize and prioritize their knowledge. I also have used it to assess their learnings.
I've created several materials that go across the curriculum to help solidify their learning. I began with the Top Ten Reader... Create a top ten list of the most important skills and strategies that good readers use to read and comprehend text. Remember that number 1 is the most important.
Check out the other Top Ten sheets I have created!!
