English Language Arts Grade 6
Reading: Informational Text Standard 2
Before reading, set a purpose for reading informational text by turning the title and subtitles into questions.
This strategy can be used in conjunction with the strategies introduced in the lessons Using a Preview Checklist with Informational Text and Using a Before-Rdg Organizer with Informational Text. Once this strategy has been introduced and practiced, be sure to integrate its use into the authentic before/during/after reading process, using a variety of informational texts. During and after reading, be sure that students use the questions they have posed to direct their reading and that they can answer the questions.
