4.) POST A RESPONSE:
- Division 1 and 2 have both been learning how to use reading strategies while they read.
- This post a response is for Div 1 and Div 2 students.
- Tell me 2 reading strategies you feel help you most when you read. Use proper paragraph structure.
- In addition to explaining what the strategies are, explain how you use these strategies.
- For example: Do you ever read something and then ask yourself, "What did I just read?" Well, if that sounds familiar, then monitoring comprehension is a strategy that you would find useful. When I come across something I don't understand, I do several things to help me 'monitor my comprehension'. To help myself understand something better, I sometimes ask my teacher, friends, re-read, stop to think, look something up in the dictionary, and I also do research online.
- Edit/revise based on the givens (spelling, grammar, sentence structure, capitals, etc)
5.) POST A RESPONSE 2: (OPTIONAL)
- Use this as an opportunity to get creative.
- Rewrite a well-known story to reflect the day and age we are living in.
- Remember, look in your hands! Why? Because that is where your creativity is! ;-)
