This Teaching Channel video shows a 6th grade teacher demonstrating how she helps students master the skills of highlighting, annotating, and then writing a response to a prompt using evidence from the text. Notice her use of modeling, stop-and-talk, and the way she teaches her students to highlight and annotate the texts. While this 5-minute video does capture a 6th grade classroom, don’t dwell on the fact that this is a 6th grade classroom. There are many evidence-based practices here that we can learn from, replicate, borrow and/or adapt to adult education classes.
What do you like about her approaches? What might you replicate with the adult learners you serve?
