the American Revolution). This will be Ior at or above grade level readers.
2. Ask them iI they have any predictions oI ideas, concepts, or vocabulary they think
they will Iind in that chapter. Record all responses on chart paper.
3. Introduce 'clunkers¨. These are sticky notes to put a question mark on iI they Iind
a word that stumps them (hence, clunker, it makes you go 'clunk¨ when you`re
reading). Clunkers can be words that you cannot decode, or can decode but do not
know what it means, or you know one meaning but it doesn`t Iit in this situation.
4. Introduce 'links¨ - words or concepts that they had predicted, or have read about
or heard about previously, they put a star on the sticky note and put it by the
word. This is encouraging them to make connections and links between what they
are reading and prior knowledge and build metacognition.
5. Introduce and model partner SQ3R, with clunkers and links. We usually do this
with only the Iirst page or so.
6. Process clunkers and links Irom that page on the group chart.

.Do any word study or vocabulary work here. With links, encourage Iurther
reading in the areas that students have put stars by. This is an excellent time to
have more challenging reading in this subiect Ior your giIted students.
