“close-reading is the product of a dynamic and deeply personal interaction between the reader and a text. It is an active process characterized by questioning, adjusting reading rate, judgment thinking, and dozens of other “strategies” readers use to make sense of what they’re reading.”

Creating Students That Solve Problems

Creating Students That Solve Problems | Resources for Teachers | Scoop.it
The next time you are in a lesson, ask yourself how many questions you are asked that don’t really need to be asked.

If the answer is too many, you are not alone. I often hear teachers complaining of the lack of initiative in their classes, having to explain simple common sense things, like where to write answers, should we start now, should we answer all of the questions, what do we do next? etc. etc. etc. I believe that such lack of initiative is indeed a modern phenomenon, a disease cultivated early in a world of standardized curricula and testing.
