17 The dirty little secret behind the keyboard-tapping, button- mashing, cell phone-yapping, Valley lifestyle? Electronics manufacturing and waste are incredibly toxic. The cycle of planned obsolescence may drive profit growth. It also drives continuing shipments of used and broken electronics to places like Guiyu, China, where workers like the one pictured here make pennies picking over silica wafers for precious metals, while drinking water polluted by lead and other industrial contaminants.

18 Guided Highlighted Reading Purpose: Engage students in print Develop fluent scanning Highlight most important information Prepare text for substantive conversation Strategies for Questions 1 and 2

19 Planning Select an article or piece of text that is accessible to all the students. Identify the vocabulary that needs to be taught in advance. Determine a context for the information that could frame it for the students prior knowledge. Consider what kind of discussion you want to come out of the reading of the text. Select the appropriate information to be highlighted based on the goal for the discussion. Map out the text paragraph by paragraph with prompts to highlight the information.

20 Procedure Build the context for the reading by activating prior knowledge. Have students find the vocabulary words in the text and highlight them. As you read the questions you prepared for each paragraph, have the students scan through the text, highlighting the answers. (Like finding Waldo) Have students go back to the text with partners to determine the meaning from context or from their prior knowledge. Have students share their results. Use the definitions for your reference as students share their results.
