This educator teaches her students a specific strategy to help them come prepared for a discussion. Post-it notes are provided so readers can mark text that jumps out at them with a question or insight they can share with the class. Post-it notes also save evidence of their thinking to support future discussion points. These little notes honor student thinking and help readers remember what stood out as they read, so they are ready and confident enough to discuss with their peers.
