Anticipatory reading guides

Anticipatory reading guides are pre-reading activities which help students to connect their personal knowledge and experience and think about the ideas they will be reading. They also require the students to make predictions about the text.

The teacher prepares the guide by writing about six statements based on the main messages of the text that will be read. The students independently decide if they agree or disagree with each statement and then share their choice with a partner. After reading they revisit the guide and decide whether the text agreed or disagreed with each statement and they write in evidence from the text. Next they discuss their choices as a class/group.
