Reading Strategy- Questions, Comments, Predictions

#mbedchatblog #mbedu #engchat

 Yesterday, I introduced you to our first metacognitive reading strategy- questions, comments and predictions.

 Questions (?)

·      While you are reading you may find yourself asking questions.  These questions might be about plot or character or any other element in the novel.


·      As a reader you respond to what you are reading. These comments and opinions are important and need to be recorded on Post-it notes.

 Predictions (!)

·      The author will often leave clues that allow you as a reader to create predictions about the plot, and characters.

Please remember to bring both post it notes and your free reading book to class tomorrow for our first "Free Reading Friday" class of the semester.  Ideally by the end of class tomorrow you will have at least 10 Q/C/P post it notes.
