Last week the facilitators went to Indy for their literacy conference. We got to hear many great speakers and brought home loads of ideas. This week I am going to use an idea about teaching vocabulary that we heard from Isabel Beck.
We also learned about comprehension and how to use questioning the author to help the students respond better to the text. This week I am going to try a couple of her ideas with a fifth grade and a fourth grade class. This comes from her book: Improving Comprehension with Questioning the Author. This builds comprehension during reading.

We had a great time in Indianapolis and can't wait to share our learning with the teachers in our schools.

Looks like you've been busy. It's always fun to try new ideas. Good luck.
