Active Reading Strategy_Anita Archer

What's hiding in the peanut butter?
Active Reading Strategy:
R - READ - read a paragraph, think about the topic & important details
C - COVER - cover the paragraph with your hand
R - RECITE - tell yourself what you have read * say the topic * say the important details * say it in your own words
C - CHECK - lift your hand & check - if you forget something that is important, begin again
Read Delicious or Deadly

Dr. Anita Archer: Content Area Text Reading
* found kids who were taught to do active reading & practiced it scored 60% higher on chapter content tests * could use this strategy 1) independently, 2) whole class, 3) partner (just rotate in terms of who tells what (topic/details/own words)
