We have spent a lot of time this week paying attention to our thinking while we read. We are working to become metacognitive learners - we want to be aware of our thinking as we learn. When we are aware of our thinking, we tend to understand and remember more about what we are reading or learning.
What strategies have you been using as you read? How has using strategies helped you understand at a high level? Some of the strategies we discussed this week are: rereading, reading on, visualizing, stopping to think, using word attack skills such as using context clues and sounding out, activating our schema (background knowledge), asking questions, and noticing text features (especially in non-fiction).
