Into the Book: Behind the Lesson is an unscripted professional learning series that features exemplary educators effectively teaching their students to be strategic readers.
In this episode, Gale Cartier teaches her first grade students how to make text to text, text to self, and text to world connections so that they can better understand a picture book during a read aloud.
Listen to Gale answer questions about how she teaches the strategy in her classroom.
"At the end of your lesson you did some social processing, what is the importance of social processing with young children?"
"How do you choose the books for the children's book boxes and small group reading instruction?"
"Can you talk about the importance of using different student grouping arrangements?"
