WALT: ask questions as we read to make sure we understand what we read.
Remember we can question before we read…
What is this going to be about? What do I already know that will help me understand? what do I want to find out?
We can question as we read…
what does that mean? what is going to happen next? what else do I want to know?
We can question after we read…
does that make sense? what have I learned? have I answered my earlier questions? what else do I want to know?
- I learned to: Ask more questions to get more information about what I was reading.
- Most challenging was: Setting up the camera before filming.
- Next step is to: Get someone to video me in the hot seat so I can answer the questions.
