WALT: Understand and explain the importance of reciprocal reading groups and share it with a wider audience via blogs.
TIB: Reciprocal reading helps us learn to guide group discussions using four comprehension strategies (summarising, questioning, clarifying, and predicting). This encourages us to think about our own thought process during reading and helps us to be actively involved and monitor our comprehension skills as we read.
Why is reciprocal reading important?
Are the interconnectors useful in helping to understand the text deeper? Why/ why not?
Summarise the comprehension strategies we use when reading.
In pairs, choose a webtool to SHOW your understanding of reciprocal reading and its importance. (popplet, prezi, padlet, bubblus, voki, microsoft word, google slide). Record at least 8 things about reciprocal reading.
You may use titles, images, sub- headings etc to demonstrate your understanding.
Save your presentation and add 1 thing about reciprocal reading to the shared Padlet
Last year I learnt that a blog is basically a website that can share lots ideas to anyone!
Also, there are parts of a blog such as the side bars, the footer, the header and most importantly, the body.
Lastly, your comment is permanent, and the whole world can see it, so you need to be very careful what you type.
As part of the HSIE unit, 5T have been learning about the Australian history.
In pairs, students have been using their library time effectively to research early Australian explorers by using their questioning skills to find information (5W 1H questions).
Task! Comment on the box below by typing in ONE interesting question you are using to find information about your famous early Australian explorer/s AND what Web tool you will use to present your research to the class.
