Video: Previewing Informational Text with Grade 2 Guided Reading Group

I was a guest for a school system in New York and I was working with second graders as their teachers watched. In this video, I introduce students to the idea of previewing text and text features (table of contents, photo) .  The texts are leveled at 16 and include fiction and informational texts.  The idea of choice is important and I wanted to demonstrate that providing students with managed choice  (teacher selects a range of texts and students preview texts and select one to read) enhances reading. This video was filmed in November. This is the students first encounter with informational text.
