Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can assign students a passage and quiz to complete independently. After all students have completed the work, teachers can connect their tablet to a projector and review the questions with students. As they do, teachers can ask students to identify the textual evidence that supports their answer.
  2. After all students have completed a reading quiz, teachers can put students in small groups and have them write an additional quiz question for each section of the passage. The quiz question can be written on either paper or using an Office app. After writing it, students can give their question to their teacher and the teacher can use it to build another quiz that aligns to the reading passage.
  3. Teachers can pair stronger students with students who need additional support. Next, teachers can assign each pair a passage and quiz to complete. Students will work together to complete the assigned reading and quiz. As part of the assignment, teachers can require students to discuss each question and answer.
  4. To differentiate their instruction, teachers can put students in small groups based on their reading level and work with them. Next, teachers can assign the group a reading passage and quiz that is appropriate for them. Teachers can then support students as they read the passage and complete the quiz.
