Links to Sites with Pre-Reading Activities
« on: October 04, 2006, 11:49:52 AM »
If you come across a site with good materials, exercises, suggestions, etc. for pre-reading, please post the link here by replying to this message.  Please include a short description of the site.  (Please note that these links may overlap with those in the during and post reading sections--which is no problem!)

This first site has information on a number of language-related topics, as well as a discussion on pre-reading:

This site has a nice .pdf file to use before your students start to read a novel:

Group Members: Sunny; Paige; Jasmin

 :) Pre-reading activity: Share what you know about the topic and predict what might be read.


 :book Warm-up discussion:
1. Whole class: Show the picture in the article to students. Ask the student what it is. Expected answer: galaxy or space.
2. Small group: After they give the answer, ask them to discuss in groups: How much do you know about space? Share with your group members first. They can search online to see how to say certain words.
3. Whole class: Share what they talked about in groups with the whole class. Write down some key vocabulary they mention on the board.
4. Small group: After sharing what they know about space and galaxy, reveal the title of the article to students, and tell students this is the article they will read in class. Ask them to predict: What will be talked about in the article? What aspects of this topic will be talked about? (The finding, the evidence, the explanation of the finding, and the impact of the finding, ect.)
