Ericaj This article provides a guide for teachers to use. Also, it has questions that can be asked throughout the book. UDL 9.3 Develop self-assessment and reflection. ESOL strategy # 6 Continually monitor students‘ comprehension. Throughout each meeting, the teacher can check upon the students to see if they understand the book. #UCFLAE3414SP21 1y
Adodd1 This book would also be great for an IR with your students, while still using ESOL strategy number 6 to check for your students comprehension 1y
ztorres Diary of the wimpy kids is a great series and always good to have in the classroom. Especially those upper elementary students that can somewhat relate to the main character who just started middles school. Really good books! 1y
DrSpalding I agree wholeheartedly that this would make an excellent literature circle/book club option in your middle grade classroom. Your universal design and English learner strategies work beautifully. 1y
