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.
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.
