6th Grade ~ Unit 1, Week 5

Students should reread parts of expository text to clarify their understanding.

"That didn't make sense!"

If a text doesn't make sense, the reader may have missed something important, such as the meaning of a word, a key piece of information, or a point the author makes.

"Slow down!"

Rereading complex text at a slower rate often helps to clarify a passage that is complex.

"What does that mean?"

Students will encounter unfamiliar words in difficult selections. Verifying word definitions as they reread can help students clarify complex text.
