Title: Notes from a middleschool teacher and principal


1
Notes from a middle-school teacher and principal!
We modified the think-along process for our
students.
2
Notes from a middle-school teacher and principal!
We used paired reading. One student read silently
and thought aloud. The other student listened and
used the check-list to keep track of the
strategies the student was using.
3
Notes from a middle-school teacher and principal!
Teachers circulated about the room and listened.
They learned about students…
  • Vocabulary strengths
  • Background experiences
  • Predictions

4
Notes from a middle-school teacher and principal!
Students reported and we observed that…
  • All readers felt they could contribute something
    (their ideas)
  • Good readers could be paired with less adequate
    readers
  • Better discussions followed the reading

5
Notes from a middle-school teacher and principal!
Students reported and we observed that…
  • The less verbal students began to talk more
  • They liked hearing what others thought as they
    read

6
Notes from a middle-school teacher and principal!
These are the results we observed…
  • Students views of reading have changed. They are
    now active thinkers about what they are reading.

7
Notes from a middle-school teacher and principal!
These are the results we observed…
  • Students are relying more on their thinking
    rather than just asking the teacher.

8
Notes from a middle-school teacher and principal!
These are the results we observed…
  • Students are monitoring their reading and
    understanding much more.

9
Notes from a middle-school teacher and principal!
These are the results we observed…
  • Students are sharing more of their ideas with
    other students since everyone feels they can
    contribute.

10
Notes from a middle-school teacher and principal!
These are the results we observed…
  • Students are more likely to engage in
    discussionseven without being asked questions.

11
Notes from a middle-school teacher and principal!
We have been using the think-along ideas in other
classes like science where…
  • Students think aloud the steps in an experiment.

12
Notes from a middle-school teacher and principal!
We have been using the think-along ideas in other
classes like science where…
  • Students think more about experiments that didnt
    work like the book said. They thought about the
    reasons!

13
Notes from a middle-school teacher and principal!
We have been using the think-along ideas in other
classes like science where…
  • Students thought about science experiments that
    reminded them of other ideasand other
    experimentsand not just in science.

14
Notes from a middle-school teacher and principal!
We have been using the think-along ideas in other
classes like science where…
  • Students recognized the similarity between
    predictions and hypotheses.

15
Notes from a middle-school teacher and principal!
We have been using the think-along ideas in other
classes like mathematics where…
  • Students think about the information they need
    and dont need.

16
Notes from a middle-school teacher and principal!
We have been using the think-along ideas in other
classes like mathematics where…
  • Students thought aloud to try to figure out just
    what the problem was that they were reading.

17
Notes from a middle-school teacher and principal!
We have been using the think-along ideas in other
classes like mathematics where…
  • One student said that math was just like reading
    because you have to think about the story and in
    math you have to think about the problem.

18
Notes from a middle-school teacher and principal!
And one student said…
  • It seems that all were doing is thinking,
    thinking, thinking. But I like it because I get
    to think my thinking.
