"What have you been doing as a reader?" -A beginning question to start a reading conference. Is that where thinking happens DURING the reading process?
Let me ask questions...let's have a class discussion; let me ask deep thinking questions.....Is that where thinking happens DURING the reading process?
Annotate, Annotate, Annotate! On a piece of paper, hidden by a cover, shoved in a crate; is that where thinking happens DURING the reading process?
Can I peek in your mind? Can I see in real time -DURING the reading process? Isn't that the key to understanding; where did comprehension occur or break down?
As I settle into my first month of Project Connect, I have finally been given the tools to dissect thinking and reading LIVE DURING the reading process. With tools such as screenr, VoiceThread, and GoogleDocs, I am finally getting a deeper understanding of my readers DURING the reading process.
