the ASK: I wondered how to help my readers “zoom in” on a text in a different, more active way.
the TRY: In a few minutes, we read the important passage a few different times, we wrestled with the words and the cadence of language in Oedipus the King and we set ourselves up for a better discussion of that passage for the rest of the class.
the LEARN: It was fun and I heard every student’s voice this day! I also learned it’s a quick and energetic way to start a lesson where we’re going to practice reading closely.
Here’s an amateur video of our reading!
