Thinking Deeper

Today during Reader's Workshop we will be working on reading for deeper meaning.

  • Thinking about questions that go beyond what the author has perhaps what the author has deliberately left out from the story? Why has the author included what he has?

  • Go back and re-read if something is confusing or unclear?

  • Take time to think about each chapter at the end before you go on; make jot notes in your Reading Response Scribbler!

  • Try to find out what the author was trying to do...did the author have a hidden agenda?
