BEFORE USING THE READING COMPREHENSION STRATEGY

  • Identify the theme or big idea that you want to cover through the use fiction texts OR
  • Read the fiction texts carefully asking yourself the DIG questions so you know that the text can be used with the DIG model

EXAMPLE: IDEAS FOR USE – MODELLING DIGGING INTO STORIES (Constructivist approach to learning)

Start by asking the students what they know about archaeologists and how archaeologists work. (This is to activate their prior knowledge about uncovering hidden ideas.) As the students share their ideas, make notes sorting their ideas into the layers that would match the DIG model.
