Content Literacy Journal Entry No. 2
I found this week’s topic on student comprehension to be quite interesting. I keep noticing that the recurring theme of all these strategies is the importance of increasing student anticipation and engagement in lessons. As an art educator I found the pattern guide strategy to be the most appealing. I think that it is a great way to enlist the students’ critical thinking skills. The students must call upon these skills in order to place the events or facts in the correct chronological order. While doing this the students are also recalling the lesson, so it also provides a format for review.
