A Critical Thinking Framework for Guided Reading (Fiction and Non-Fiction)
It has been designed to help busy teachers to structure their text-based questioning in ten key areas:
Explanation of a Character’s Motives
Purpose of The Text
Where applicable each area includes a continuum of both fiction and non-fiction questions divided into six key sections: Knowledge, Comprehension, Application, Analysis, Synthesis and Evaluation. These can be used to develop or reinforce children’s skills through critical thinking.
The areas covered in the app have been identified through analysis of UK Key Stage 2 SATs papers from 2004-2015. Regardless of tests, these skills are fundamental to children’s comprehension of texts and will help them to develop the critical thinking skills they will need as they progress.
The app is easy to use and will help to avoid ad hoc and/or repetitive questioning in guided reading sessions. Each 'area' includes a note-taking section. Notes are saved 'in app' but can also be backed-up using Dropbox. Further questions designed by staff and/or clusters of schools can therefore be added, making this an ever-expanding resource.
A 'must-have' app for all schools to support the development of reading.
