This week I share with you the third and final visual in the set that my students and I have been using during our Reading Workshop to help us improve our comprehension.
This visual focuses on the skill of predicting and includes three main teaching tips.
1) Readers can use their knowledge of the characters to predict what will happen next.
2) Readers can use their knowledge of story structure to predict what will happen next.
3) Occasionally, readers need to revise their predictions as they read.
In case you missed the first two visuals, you can click on the following links to access visuals focusing on the strategies of envisioning and inferring. I hope you and your students enjoy these tools and find them useful.
