Read full description of the books:
Places visualization, a comprehension technique I use in my work with kids as the centerpiece of a spectrum of increasingly complex strategies for understanding: Making Connections, Questioning, Visualizing, Inferring, Determining Importance and Synthesizing. While there's almost too much here, I guess that's not too much of a complaint (better than not enough) and for someone who wants to learn about kids' lit, there are great appendixes with lists of different types of books.
When we were in school, the teachers asked the questions, and we supplied the answers. Or tried to anyway, whether we knew them or not. The teachers knew the answers to the long litany of questions they asked or the questions we faced at the end of the story in our reading textbooks. And they asked these questions to check on us, to see whether we had done the homework, read the chapter, or memorized the facts…. Our own important questions were reserved for recess, walking home after school, or at the dinner table that night. School was not to be mucked up with a lot of tangential kid questions.
…We call these "sincere questions." Many schools, however, still focus primarily on what we have come to call "assessment questions."
Assessment questions are
• Questions we know the answers to
• Questions we ask in order to check or monitor our students
Sincere questions are
• Questions we don't know the answer to
• Questions we ponder and wonder about
• Questions that require further research by both student and teacher
Now, before launching a full frontal attack on assessment questions, we recognize that we are teachers and that we have both the right and the responsibility to ask assessment questions to monitor our kids' progress….But do we need to ask so many?
