Lesson Plan

Anchor Lessons Using Reading with Meaning Strategies

This resource is based on the book, Reading With Meaning by Debbie Miller.  This resource contains a set of lessons for each of the 6 strategies: Making Connections, Visualizing, Inferring, Asking Questions, Determining Important Ideas and Synthesizing.  Each strategy is demonstrated through an “anchor lesson” for Kindergarten, Primary, Junior and Intermediate divisions.  Also, each division contains both a fiction and a non-fiction anchor lesson.  Therefore, this resource contains 48 lessons – 6 strategies x 4 divisions x 2 genres.
If you are new to the Reading with Meaning strategies, you will be able to use these lessons as a way of introducing yourself to this technique and experimenting with its delivery.
