Bear Biologists

Posted on: August 23rd, 2016 by Jessica
Students read informational text about bear field biologists. They are asked to annotate the text, specifically focusing on vocabulary and main ideas. Three TDQ are asked. The Dear Colleague letter further discusses TDQ in our classrooms. This activity is available on the primary and intermediate levels. There is also a companion emergent reader WAP. The activity correlates with Key Ideas and Details – Reading Informational Text of Common Core and with “Students apply a wide range of strategies to comprehend, interpret, evaluate, and appreciate texts. They draw on their prior experience, their interactions with other readers and writers, their knowledge of word meaning and of other texts, their word identification strategies, and their understanding of textual features (e.g., sound-letter correspondence, sentence structure, context, graphics) of the ILA/NCTE Standards. Primary Intermediate
