In reading, we have been working on a number of strategies and tools to deepen our understanding of our texts. The past week, we have been exploring how we can show evidence from our reading when we write. In order to help us continue to grow as readers, we did a gallery walk with our reading responses. Students put a reading response on their table, and had the opportunity to walk around reading others’ reading responses. This allowed us to not only see the different ways that we are all using evidence to support our ideas, but also to get compliments and feedback about how we can improve our ideas.
After the gallery walk, students had a chance to reflect about what they had read and the feedback they had received. They used this to set a goal for the next day about how to take their writing about reading to the next level.
