Fresh Reads

I am sort of at a loss on how to best utilize the fresh reads with my 6th grade students. I would love to get other people’s suggestions! 🙂 I have tried a couple of different things:
1. Gave the students the fresh read as an assessment without reading it prior to that
2. I read it aloud to them while they followed along. Then I gave it to them as an assessment
3. I had them partner read it twice during the week. They used the “Say Something” strategy where one partner would
read a section, the other partner would “say something” about what was read and then they would swap. Then I gave
it to them as an assessment at the end of the week.

What was so disheartening was that there was not a huge difference between the grades no matter what way I did it.

If anyone has any suggestions please leave a comment! 🙂
