Hello, my name is Sandy Springer. I've been an educator since nineteen-ninety-three. I have taught both the public and private school systems. I've taught elementary school through to adults. I have a bachelor's degree in elementary education and a master's degree in English as a second language. Today we're going to talk about writing in response to reading. The first step is I would talk about the book, introduce the book, but I would also pose some questions that give the students something to think about before the reading. While I was reading the book to them they should be thinking about these questions and the answers to these questions. After I finish, they would write in response to it. This builds critical thinking skills, it gives them a purpose, this sets a purpose for the reading and for the listening for the writing. And it builds - helps build critical thinking skills which are certainly transferable in everything that you do in life. I'm Sandy Springer, and that's how to teach writing in response to reading.
