Real world problems

How knowledge is applied

  • She felt sorry for it.
  • Because she knew what it felt like to be hungry.
  • Because she’s a compassionate person.
  • To help it live. (p. 77)

What is reading comprehension?

  • First, we have to ask students to show us how they’re thinking. This means asking for verbal responses that include both judgments and justifications for those judgments.
  • Second, the questions we ask need to be more open-ended. Life is rarely about finding right answers. It’s about finding increasingly adequate answers. We need to prepare students for that reality.
  • Third, we need to engage in the careful, painstaking study of how students construct meanings over time.
