Towards Thoughful Strategy Instruction

It’s so easy to go overboard on any one good thing.  This post at Choice Literacy covers the balance between the idea of a good teaching strategy and the reality of using it.  Towards the end, the author talks about challenging herself to read one hard book a year and think through what she does as a reader.  It’s such an obvious but great idea to do this- to walk the walk, as she says.  It’s also a great way to come up with possible teaching points for students (either for minilessons or in conferences)- notice and name what you do as a reader, then teach kids to do it.
