1 ACTIVE READING STRATEGIES

2 GOOD READERS THINK WHILE THEY READ

14 CONNECT THINK ABOUT YOUR OWN LIFE WHEN YOU READ SOMETHING Back in school, before Camp, I was shorter and smaller than the rest of the kids. I was always the last to be picked for any team when we played games.

15 VISUALIZE MAKE A PICTURE IN YOUR MIND OF WHAT THE TEXT SAYS This Camp wasn’t anything like home. It was so hot in the daytime and so cold at night. Dust storms came and got sand in everything, and nobody could see a thing. We sometimes got caught outside, standing in line to eat or to go to the bathroom.

16 Once Dad asked Teddy to get him a cup of water. Once Dad asked Teddy to get him a cup of water. ” Get it yourself,” Teddy said. “What did you say?” Dad snapped back. The older men stood up and pointed at Teddy. “How dare you talk to your father like that!” one of them shouted. The older men stood up and pointed at Teddy. “How dare you talk to your father like that!” one of them shouted. Teddy got up, kicked the crate he was setting on, and walked away. I never heard Teddy talk to Dad that way before. Teddy got up, kicked the crate he was setting on, and walked away. I never heard Teddy talk to Dad that way before. PREDICT TRY TO GUESS WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT IN THE STORY OR ARTICLE

17 That’s when Dad knew we needed baseball. We got shovels and started digging up the sagebrush in a big empty space near our barracks. PREDICT THE READER MIGHT PREDICT: I bet Teddy’s Dad is going to whoop him, especially since he talked back to him in front of other people.

18 Then a few months ago, it got worse. The kids started calling me names and nobody talked to me, even though I didn’t do anything bad. At the same time the radio kept talking about some place far away called Pearl Harbor. QUESTION LET QUESTIONS COME TO YOUR MIND WHEN YOU READ

19 All the time I practiced, the man in the tower watched. He probably saw the other kids giving me a bad time and thought that I was no good. So I tried to be better because he was watching. CLARIFY SLOW DOWN AND MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE READING

20 But it wasn’t as if everything were fixed. Things were bad again when we got home from Camp after the war. Nobody talked to us on the street, and nobody talked to us at school, either. Most of my friends from Camp didn’t come back here. I had to eat lunch by myself. EVALUATE FORM OPINIONS ABOUT WHAT YOU READ AS YOU READ IT
