A friend visited the Scholastic site....she visited many places and pages. She saw a post where a teacher was talikng about answer "stems" for students to use when they say...someone has my answer already...was that your site? Do you know what page to refer me to? Do you have any ideas to use in that scenario? Thanks for any and all help.
It could have been me, but there of course are others who have resources like it. I know I have made a sheet with "answer stems", but I do not know if I have uploaded it to the Internet. I focus on transition words to write extended responses to literature, phrases like "My prediction about __________ was true because _______", and help my students to reword parts of questions for clarity.
You can search http://www.teachingvision.org/resources - or hopefully the right person will respond to this because there may be a really good resource out there I am missing. Perhaps check the Mosaic of Thought Readinglady.com Listserv (Google it, because it is a specific address), because the resource you are seeking may very well be from that site. I go there often.
Also-This is not it, but this gets ideas in students' minds for journaling about reading- http://teachingvision.org/resources/readingjournalentries.pdf
