apply their knowledge to a new situation
Give out a different section of the article to each person in your Home Group.

In these Expert Groups answer the questions for your section.
Move back to your Home Group and share answers for each section of the article.
The reading tasks covered 3 dimensions:
Continuous texts, non-continuous texts, mixed texts, multiple texts
Access and retrieve, integrate and interpret, reflect and evaluate
Personal, educational, occupational, public, scientific
How important is reading in your science area?
Students in a particular class begin the year with lower reading comprehension than their peers in another class
In response, their teachers give them fewer opportunities to read, and when they do, the texts are simplified
So, the gaps in reading comprehension between the two groups get even bigger
Therefore, they get less exposure to rich and authentic texts than their peers
apply – to related situations,
justify – give reasons,
evaluate – how significant are results?
compare and contrast,
link – to other scientific ideas or principles
