Reading Task Boards and Centers Holding Students Accountable for Applying Skills and Strategies when the read
What should your reading block look like? What can we agree upon that must be happening? Shared Reading Guided Reading Independent Practice Students will produce something that will demonstrate what they are practicing when they read. This is how we will hold students accountable
Meaningful work means… Students are engaged in reading most of the time. The other part of the time they are responding to reading. Reading can be Independent reads from the classroom library or school library Time for kids, weekly reader, scholastic or national geographic or any other magazine that matches their independent or instructional level Books around a content area or theme Poems Series books or author studies **Responding to reading is skill based and standards based. We can call responding to reading writing about reading too. **These reading responses can be your tasks
