- In this activity, students are given slips of blank paper, roughly the size of bookmarks.
- As they read, they take note of their trouble spots in the text- places where comprehension begins to falter.
- When students arrive in class the next day, they are placed in groups and asked to share their trouble spots with their peers.
- Together, they try to work through the confusion.
*This teaches students that confusion is normal; and, through discussions with peers, students are often able to deal with their confusion without the assistance of the teacher.
