Question Detail

Independent first read

Nov 25, 2013 2:01pm

There is some discussion in our school about whether or not students should read a short story independently the first time through before going back to a close reading with text dependent questions. Any thoughts on this? I cannot find anything on the common core websites that tells you how to introduce a text. Some teachers are saying to chunk it and ask questions all the way through. Some teachers believe that students should read (struggle with) the text and then reread with questions.
