  13. 13. Reading Strategies ToolkitAnticipation guides or prediction guides activate a student’s prior knowledge and set a purposeor framework for the reading. They are most useful when the text contains controversial issues,problems, or opinions about a topic.Procedure:1. Identify major concepts in the reading or lesson.2. Create statements that question certain notions, beliefs, or opinions.3. Have students mark their responses of agreement or disagreement in the “Before Reading” column and then have students give reasons for their opinions by answering the “Why?” question on the left under each statement.4. Have students read the text.5. After reading or other follow-up activities, have students mark the “After Reading” column and fill in the “Why?” section on the right under each statement.6. Conduct a discussion comparing the before and after results. Your discussion should refer to evidence in the text and should cover students’ reasons for changes in their before and after answers.EXAMPLE:A = Agree strongly a = Agree somewhat d = Disagree somewhat D = Disagree strongly Before Reading After Reading ____ 1.
