I thought readers might be interested in seeing some work representative of what’s being typically done in my English Language Learner U.S. and World History classes using those two strategies.

First off, World History students read a chapter on Hunter-Gatherers and, after applying a number of reading strategies, had to create a poster with these elements:

* Three words they thought are critical to understanding the chapter, what they mean, and why they think the words are so important

* Two phrases critical to understanding the chapter and why they think they are important

* One quotation critical to understanding the chapter why they think the quotation is important

* A drawing representing something important about the chapter

Students then shared them in a “speed-dating” style with multiple classmates, including asking each other questions using an academic question-starter sheet ” To read further please click here:
