Transcript of Pearson Interactive, Take 3.

Active Reading Vocabulary Pearson - Interactive Lessons. ... it's an interactive process that helps readers achieve complex comprehension; they are able to better recall their reading materials. Activity #1: Visual Definitions.
One way to give words meaning, and to get them to stay put in our brains, is to make them visual. So, let's take the words from your reading and make them visual by finding images for them. Then we'll place the definitions next to images associated with the word. Active Reading Activity #1: Be a Stalker!
Before I read an essay or chapter for class, I'll Google the people who wrote the essay or the pieces of the chapter. I might even stalk them on Facebook or Twitter. Doing this may give me more information on that person and why they wrote the piece.
*Not all authors will be found in these searches; please be aware of this. Activity #2: Create a Quiz!
One way to really learn the material would be to create a quiz on the chapter. Yes, YOU make the quiz. One has to know the material in order to make a quiz, right? This shows you read the piece critically and that you understood, too. Activity #3: The Flickr/Pixlr Image Creation.
Choose a quote (or more) from the piece you just read. Then head to Flickr.com to find an image that relates to that quote. Save the image to your computer. Then head to Pixlr.com and open the image. You can then add the quote to the picture. This may help you associate what you learned with a visual chosen by you. To make the words visual, I used Microsoft Powerpoint, but you could use a typical word-processing program, too. And I found the images using Flickr.com, of course!

Another way to make sure words stand out to us is to make them literally STAND OUT. So, let's take the words from your reading and make them different than the rest of the words. Before starting to write at all, we need to make sure we understand the assignment. So, let's read a possible writing assignment and take it apart. Activity #1:
Step One in the Writing Process
is Prewriting. This includes brainstorming with lists or clusters. For this activity, let's use Post-Its to organize the pieces we want to talk about in the letter. Activity #2:
Step Two in the Writing Process is Drafting. This means we need to put words into sentences and then into paragraphs. It doesn't need to look or sound good at this point.

For this activity, let's write one sentence for each Post-It we created in Activity #1. Then let's put them into paragraphs: one paragraph about family, one about friends, etc. Activity #3:
Step Three in the Writing Process is Revising. Once you have a first draft, you need to look at the organization and add details where necessary. We can look at grammar and punctuation last; let's make sure all the things you want to say are there first! Activity #4:
Step Four in the Writing Process is Editing. This is when we dive into the grammar, punctuation, and spelling of the draft to make it polished and pretty. Let's color-code what we'll change in Julia's draft. annotate and highlight outline and map summarize and paraphrase structure of a paragraph topic and main idea
