Students read along, listen as the teacher models how to make meaning of text, and respond to
prompts that engage them actively in co-constructing meaning with their partners and/or team

For example, the teacher may stop to:
     “think aloud” about word parts in vocabulary
     make a comprehension strategy explicit
     focus students on a specific cognitive function or
       language objective

For example, the teacher may provide opportunities for students to practice the following through
quiet thinking and turn and talk:
     application of vocabulary knowledge
     use of a comprehension strategy
     practice of a cognitive function or specific language

The teacher is able to make intermediate, formative assessments and base future instructional
decisions based on observations of student practice


               The teacher considers past evidence of students’ skills while:
                     Chunking text,
                     Planning introduction of vocabulary,
                     Identifying an appropriate comprehension strategy to make explicit, and
                     Selecting an appropriate cognitive function or language objective
                for modeling, shared practice, and demonstration of understanding.
