I Can Create Mental Images to Retell and Infer Big Ideas
Miller, Debbie
Reading Teacher, v66 n5 p360-364 Feb 2013
As teachers, we are always reflecting on and refining our craft. In this article, the author shares how her understanding and implementation of comprehension strategy instruction has evolved over the past ten years. These shifts include her current thinking about the gradual release of responsibility instructional model, how content and big ideas drive her studies, and the enhanced role of assessment for teaching and learning. Readers will step into a kindergarten classroom where the author brings these principles and practices to life, and shows how our youngest readers can not only successfully engage in thoughtful, critical thinking, but make their thinking visible, public, and permanent. (Contains 2 figures.)
