Completing the "Reading Record"
“Completing the Reading Record” webinar is designed for teachers whose students are viewing a fictional or documentary film; reading a novel, reading or performing drama, or reading a short story. Not only will Dr. Louis provide samples and guidance for completing these “Reading Records” but also she will provide ideas regarding presentation and scoring.
Completing the "Dialectical Journal"
The “Dialectical Journal” is a document, which students complete in terms of Concrete Details and Commentary. This T-Chart format allows students to identify evidence as they read and provide analysis. Dr. Louis will demonstrate how students can select from prompts, take notes as they read, and create writing assignments.
Completing the "Film Viewing Guide"
Viewing a film during this time of uncertainty is a nice way to teach skills in a non-stressful environment. The whole family can be involved, too! The “Film Viewing Guide” is a skill-based graphic organizer designed to guide students’ focus on the elements of fictional literature, including theme. From the “Film Viewing Guide,” students can create literary analyses as well as expository writing.
Completing the "Levels of Questions"
As students read fiction and nonfiction texts, they should be asking questions all the time. Teaching students the three levels of questions and asking them to create and submit those questions help teachers assess the students’ comprehension and analytical capabilities. Whether a student is seven or seventeen, knowing the right questions to ask helps students engage in close reading.
