  • Why did New Readers Press ask me to write this book? They want an instructional perspective.
  • We did not field test every lesson in the book, but several of them. This was my favorite. Meet: Shannon, Geri, Antonio, & Tiffany. My other learners didn’t want their pictures taken!

  • This is scaffolding to help learners understand the instructional purpose of group discussion. Key points: You have to explain yourself more. You will hear different perspectives.
  • Gently enforce these rules! Provide the behavioral expectations to create a safe space for group construction of knowledge through discussion.
  • Check or review pre-requisite knowledge. What is the U.S. Constitution? The document that explains how the government works. What is the Bill of Rights? The first set of Amendments to the U.S. Constitution that explains the rights of citizens. Amend means to add. An Amendment is something added, in this case to the Constitution.
  • Let’s read this twice: two different readers. After we’ve read it: Any words to define? (Regulated, Militia, Arms, infringed) What do you think this means?

  • Let’s read this again. Do you understand it more now? Ask again for the definitions of vocabulary: regulated, Militia, Arms, infringed.
  • Give each learner a chance to answer. This requires them to synthesize and evaluate the information from previous slides in order to make a decision. After each person answers, they can discuss and clarify positions in conversation. Because of the topic, many students will automatically connect it to previous knowledge or experiences. Facilitator positively points out when students use vocabulary words, and if necessary asks follow up questions to ask learners to support their argument with information from slides.
  • Formative writing assessment. This requires students to summarize their main point from the discussion in writing. The focus should be on the ideas, not on spelling & grammar at this point. These summaries could be used later for a follow up writing activity, however.
