This unit uses an image as Visual Text or input THE BROKEN WINDOW plus 20 Task Cards covering comprehension skills; Visualization, Prior Knowledge, Generalization, Cause and effect, Fact and Opinion, Sequencing, Questioning, Predicting, Comparing and Contrasting and Drawing Conclusions.
I found that students' skills comprehension improve with this opportunity to think about the image. These thinking skills carried over into written texts and improved their ability to discuss their ideas, possibilities and opinions.
The image makes a great focal point for a wall display, surround by student's task work.
1. The last 8 Task Cards make great notebook/workbook activities.
2. They serve as idea starters for class or small group discussions.
3. Laminate a set to use as an activity in a literacy center.
4. Use them as assessment and/or homework tasks.
5. Use them as a Center Activity
