Constructing Meaning

Dependent readers need to talk about what they are reading while they read it, not after they read.

During reading, students should make predictions, clarifications, and connections as well as ask questions. Teachers should model these strategies explicitly in think alouds. Students should be encouraged to think aloud as they read both in small groups and individually. They should also be encouraged to reread texts.
