Comprehension Shouldn't Be Silent
Laying the Foundation for the Metacognitive Teaching Framework
Michelle J. Kelley
Chapter 2 describes how to plan and integrate instruction centered on cognitive units of study in predicting, connecting, questioning, visualizing, and summarizing. Yearly and monthly plans are offered, as well as ideas for your daily schedule. The authors provide a six-week introductory unit that details week-by-week how to get the year started. Activities are provided to help get your classroom running smoothly and help your students become more metacognitively aware. Routines to ensure success are scaffolded through classroom transcripts and explicit descriptions. Assessments are offered and explained to help differentiate instruction to meet students' needs. In addition, student samples are included to support implementation.
