That is my language arts/reading comprehension unit. I have to make it last until the curriculum director comes forth with the next unit... could be a while. Now, it's very nice to ask T/F questions to gauge comprehension... but what is there to it that can take a half-hour a day for several weeks?! Am I missing something? Here's what I've thought of so far: # Avoid jumping to conclusions (faulty inferencing) -- what did the text actually say vs. what you think about it # Increasing awareness of exaggeration, not taking it literally # Be wary of always/never statements, and in speech/writing use only when it's true # Distinguishing between fantasy and reality; identifying absurdities in statements, stories # Identify fact/opinion statements Do you think that's what they meant? What other goals might fall in this unit?
