Our Reading with Purpose and Understanding lesson plan introduces students to the purpose of reading and understanding what they read. The lesson offers steps that can be used to read in a way that will help students retain and understand the information they read. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creativity and work with a partner to design and create a poster showing the five steps for reading with purpose and understanding; they then share their finished poster with the class, sharpening their presentation and public speaking skills. Students are also asked to match terms with their definitions, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson vocabulary.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to read grade-level text with purpose and understanding.
