1 Living in AntarcticaRead the passage using the RUNNERS strategies and answer questions# 7-13.pgs. 5-8
3 R Read the title and scan the text. Make predictions. Read the title, look at pictures, scan the text. Make predictions about the genre and author’s purpose.Do the pictures look real or fake?Is there dialogue throughout the passage?Fiction or non-fiction?Be sure to read the writing that is under the title.(sometimes written in italics. Often this will give you a summary, hint at the main idea or give more information about the topic).*Remember these are only predictions, so they may not be correct, but they will get your brain warmed up and thinking.
4 U Underline / highlight key words in the questions This will help you set a purpose for reading. You should underline important names, dates, and parts of the question.If a word is already bold or italicized it is not necessary to underline since it is already telling you how important the word is.What is the question really asking? (author’s purpose, main idea, sequencing, etc.)
5 N Number the paragraphs / stanzas If the passage contains a lot of dialogue, avoid numbering all of the paragraphs.
