brainstorming & focusing

after reviewing how to survey & predict, we brainstormed things we already know about or common text's topic in order to activate our prior knowledge. next, we wrote some questions to focus our brains on what we expected the text to tell us about, and read. students were asked to identify (underline, highlight) only the information that helps answer their focusing questions. we discussed the process of reading and what we learned from the text.

none, unless the text was unfinished.
