"HelpingStudents Think Through Expository Text"
Grade 3 - 12
Mrs. Kampsen walked into a 3rd grade classroom that was not familiar with SQP2RS. She quickly began the process. The progression of introducing the concepts and walking through the steps took an hour. Remember, once the students use this method everytime they open up their text to a new unit or chapter, SQP2RS should take a few minutes. As you watch each segment, notice the interaction of the students and their engagement to the text. Using the overlays and having students mark their evidence is profoundly simple but of key importance in clarifying meaning and comprehension. Print off the lesson materials and take notes about your own thinking,questions, and comments. Our hope is that you watch with your colleagues. Once you begin the process of SQP2RS in your classroom, start with one subject, share with your peers the journey you and your students are taking.
