How Prompting Helps Students Learn Strategies

300 StrategiesINS_4129

Jennifer Serravallo's The Reading Strategies Book is out now. In this video, Jen discusses how teachers can guide the practice when students learn new strategies.

Jen talks about the awareness that, if she is doing most of the talking in a conference as a teacher, then she is also doing most of the thinking work. So, in The Reading Strategies Book, each strategy has a list of prompts—short questions, directives, compliments—that keep the student active in thinking and learning.
