    John, I always find the process question to be very helpful. It helps complete the visual tool in an order that makes sense. I don’t know if that helps, but remember there is not one answer so be creative and have those process questions near when you complete a tool.

    Observations:
    1. Thinking Aloud- Speaking in first person is so powerful and it’s such a great way to model thinking for my students. Use pronouns I, me, my
    2. Setting Expectations- It’s very unusual for students to not share their thinking during a typical read aloud setting so it’s very important to set the stage for the students before you begin to read/model. Sit at the edge of your seat, listen, and watch me as I demonstrate how to use the visual tool and the process questions to show my thinking.

    The pitcher goes through a series of steps to make the ball go from point A to point B. From the start to the release of the ball is one motion but there are a series of steps that the pitcher must make to execute that motion. There is an initial positioning, a control body, and pivoting points that all have to be put together in order for the motion to be carried out and ultimately reach a goal. In the same way as a pitcher, a reader must apply and use multiple skills or strategies to gain an understanding of the text and engage in the text at the deepest level.
