Reading Strategies

Post-it Response Notes~ Post-Its may be used during and after reading.~ Students use sticky notes to jot responses, flag important passages, show thinking strategies, ask questions, etc.~ Students refer to notes in discussion sessions.~ Students use multiple colors to distinquish responses.

I don't agree with the author on this point.

I have no idea what he's talking about here. What do Goths have to do with the 500s? I didn't know they had been around that long..

Why Use Post-It Response Notes?-Tracking reading is something all competent readers do, particularly when reading for information.-Students become aware of elements of the text and their responses to it. -Students feel like they "own" a text by establishing authority over the contents. The physical act of placing notes within the material gives the students ownership.-Critical thinking skills are developed by reading and responding in kind.

Wow! I didn't know Mozart was buried in a mass grave. That's sad.

I wonder why spiders have 8 eyes. Maybe to help them see bugs.

What does "parallelism" mean? Something about math? like parallel lines? |||||||

How to Use Post-Its in the Classroom-Give students simple directions on what to look for in their reading.-Explain what to to write on their post-its

-Model how to use post-it notes to the class.-Provide students with different colors and sizes of post-its.-To assess post-its, have students write the page

number where they would attach the sticky note, and attach the post-its to a separate page with the student's name on it.

-Students comment on other student papers or work on sticky notes-Teachers use colored sticky notes for praise & disciplinary measures.-Students storyboard their writing with sticky notes

Well DUH! LOL!

-Organize folders, study cards, and notepapers-Analyze poetry, quotes or philosophies by placing responses on sticky notes-identify, label, or categorize items (maybe in a target language)
