Text Coding

Page history last edited by Angela Cunningham 12 years, 11 months ago
 
 
Text coding is a strategy used to help students keep track of thinking while they are reading.  Students use a simple coding system to mark the text and record what they are thinking either in the margins or on post-it notes. As students make connections, self-question, and respond to what they reading, they are self-monitoring their comprehension and enhancing long term understanding. The codes help students name and remember a particular thinking strategy and track the thinking throughout the text. Following are options for students to use while coding text.
