Planning for Daily Intentional Teaching
• What do my students need to know? • What strategies/knowledge help them as readers? • In what way does this “strategy” look different across genre? • How will I make this strategy or understanding clear to them? • What language will I use? • What texts/materials will best support this instruction? • How can/will I connect this work to writing? • How will I collect evidence that can help me determine how well students have grasped this new understanding?
