4 Questioning the Author  Students are given a set of questions that evaluates an author’s effectiveness. Questions could be: What is the author trying to say? What is the author’s message? Does the author explain the information clearly? Does the author tell us why? How does this connect to what the author told us before?  For narrative pieces: How do things look for this character now? What do you think this character is up to now given what the author has told us? How has the author let you know that something has changed? How has the author settled this for us?  It is best to have preplanned the stopping places in the text to question the author. Eventually, students can create their own questions and determine their stopping points.  Students are given a set of questions that evaluates an author’s effectiveness.

5 Text Type Poems  Text Type Poems can be used during whole group fluency. Classes are divided into two groups, and students will choral read the title and subheadings together. Then group A and group B will alternate back and forth to read poems. For example, group A will say, “I am Narrative,” then group B will say, “I am Expository.” The students should have a copy of the poems and these poems should be enlarged to use for Walls That Teach.  An example can be found in the curriculum.  Text Type Poems can be used during whole group fluency.
