Literacy Strategies at Jay High School
As students progressed through this process, Karina created class notes on large chart paper to allow students access to the information - to share later, but also to summarize for each student as they began their section of text. Students appeared engaged throughout the process, one exclaiming, "This is easy! I thought it would be like 25 minutes." Obviously, students were able to comprehend ideas several grade levels above their reading level - well supported with research.
Pairs of students worked around the room, relaxed and focused. Karina provided support as needed.
