Activity 3: Challenge Your Teacher to a Reading Match
You have just filled out a survey about your reading habits and answered questions about the types of texts that you like to read outside of school.
Bring a text to class that you can read expertly but that you think your teacher (or other people you know) might have difficulty understanding. In other words, bring in some specialized text that you read comfortably and confidently so you can challenge your teacher to a reading match! Use the ideas you came up with when completing the Reading Habits Survey and the Anticipation Chart to help you decide what text to bring in to share. Bring in something you personally enjoy reading that you also think might challenge your teacher as a reader. Perhaps it’s on a topic you don’t think he or she knows much about, or perhaps the text structure is very specialized and you need to be an insider of a particular community to read this kind of text well.
Please make sure your text is at least a paragraph long; one to three pages would be ideal. The text should have its original formatting.
Also, remember that your text must be appropriate for the classroom. Your teacher will let you know specifically what that means.
