Countdown to Reading Comprehension
If the homework assignment is "Read pages...", instead of having students answer the review questions have them respond in 3-2-1 countdown format. After reading the assigned selection, ask them to write
- three new things they have learned;
- two items they feel might be most important to recall for a future quiz or test; and
- one question they had (something they did not understand, a clarification they would like, something else they would like to know...) as they read.
