    Agree! It produces the deep understanding our students need for comprehension.

    Yes, when they can apply the skill and not just answer questions about the text, it shows that deep understanding.

    It really helps the story “stick” when you discuss it and gain insights from others.

    Good thoughts! The verbal introduction was a new concept for me as well, but I can see how it helps students.

    I am curious about this also. Are you able to have them try and write their own answers on a whiteboard or something as they watch you model, simply to keep them engaged? Some will get it faster than others, so I wonder if it would give them an ability to sort of “check themselves” as they go along, while those that need more modeling are able to spend more time just watching?

    These are great ideas for providing feedback! That can be hard to remember sometimes.

    Yes! Students have to be pushed a little harder to move past the surface questions, but it is worth it-they become better readers long term.

    Exactly! Changing our mindset this way also helps us identify how to help those struggling with comprehension, and gives us confidence that all of our students can become good at reading comprehension.
