It was interesting to learn about these strategies for me as well. I have been doing some sort of this on my own, but it is nice to learn how the strategy is to be implemented correctly. Angie I agree with your question about going over the same material. I too have questioned this myself many times. We doing a book of the week each week in my classroom. We read it several times throughout the week and answer questions or do some type of writing or comprehension activity after each reading. I have struggled with whether to continue the book over an additional week or no? Part of me wants to continue the same book until we have mastered answering "wh" questions correctly, while the another part of me wonders if the students become bored with the same book after too long and after 2 consecutive weeks are they really learning to improve comprehension or have they just memorized the answers? I also agree with your point that you really have to determine which strategy is right for the student. I too like the PEER strategy, but can see the potential for issues with using this with some of my students.

      That's awesome, Angie! I hadn't heard of the PEER strategy before. We learned about the CROWD questions in Dr. Koppenhaver's lecture and I love those ideas for engaging with the student during shared ... more

        Megan, I also loved your idea of having a central theme! In Dr. Deal's class we were able to take a central theme and develop many different lesson plans around it. We were able to utilize a lot of... more

        I really like your idea about having a central theme, then doing lots of different things with that. I still think it is difficult as a teacher to decide when to move on to a new skill, or even when... more
