Learn how to apply visual and meaning cues to reading unknown words. Readers will explore what to do when they come to a word they do not know as they watch the teacher model the use of these cues and then participate in guided and independent practice. In the guided practice, young readers get to be on the look out for the teacher to make mistakes! Various books with good illustrations are recommended for this activity.
"How important is freedom to you and your family?" The guiding question becomes much more powerful after your class reads and responds to a passage from a historical novel. While reading the passage, they complete a graphic organizer (attached) that helps them to create and assess predictions, formulate new questions, and make inferences. A list of suggested texts to use with this resource is included.
Use picture cues as a tool in order to create meaning along with text. With a wordless comic, young illustrators discuss the main idea and character traits, and independently write a summary for a page of a wordless comic. This strategy has application to both literature and informational text.
Seventh graders explore the historical significance of mythology in Ancient Egypt. In this World History lesson, 7th graders research the different gods and goddesses in Ancient Egypt and present their findings to the class. Students create cue cards that contains this information.
