Wednesday's reading strategy was Questioning.
Questioning is used to clarify and deepen understanding of a text by asking questions before, during, and after .reading.
It is also when we challenge the texts we read. We need to question texts, topics and how valid is the content and how relevant is it to our world.
We can look at questions with a right or wrong answer and also think beyond the text and make connections and inferences.
There are different types of Questioning skills that we use:
This was the image we needed to write questions about.
On Monday students used sticky notes to record their responses.
Today we did it differently. Students nominated a partner , logged onto a computer and entered a strange URL into the address bar when they accessed the internet. (I had used the goo.gl URL shortener to give a very condensed version of the URL needed.
What they discovered when they looked at the IWB, was that small avatars started appearing above the presentation. This became reflective of how many computers were logged into the document.
Students then clicked on the comments box and started to enter their questions about the picture.
As this was the first time we had used the collaborative feature of google docs, some questions became a little difficult to read as other people's questions jumped in at the same time. It took a little while but we managed to have most questions where they needed to be.
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work and we pay our respects to the Elders both past and present.
