Mental Image Quad
My students are continuing to learn about visualizing. This is one of my favorite strategies! If you haven't read the book, Reading with Meaning by Debbie Miller, you really must check it out The quad I used, comes from her book. I simply replicated her example. We will continue to use this strategy throughout the year. Their images are becoming stronger and more vivid. We read the story, Henry and Mudge and the Starry Night, and they had to record their mental images as the story progressed. We talked about how our mental images change as the story changes and why everyone has different images. No two papers were exactly alike. Their answer always puts a smile on my face- "Because we have different schemas!"
