In author Dan Feigelson's book Reading Projects Reimagined, he shows us how conference-based reading projects can help students learn to recognize, name, and extend their own ideas about text. It is helpful to think of such conferences as opportunities to match a child's thinking to a particular comprehension strategy.
In today's post adapted from the book, we see Dan conferring with 6th grader Ella. In response to her ideas and noticings, Dan and Ella agree on an assignment to help her practice reading like a writer.
