 MSA Coach
 "The purpose of this lesson is to understand what you have read and to visualize to gain further understanding. We will each read the passage silently. Then we will take turns asking questions about the passage and what it means. We will attempt to draw a picture in our minds about the passage. I will model it for you and then you will use the skill with one another."
 The teacher and students will read the passage. They will then be asked to visualize the information in their minds. The teacher will talk aloud what she is visualizing to assist those students who are unable to come up with their own ideas.
 The teacher will close his or her book and the student will ask the teacher as many questions as possible about the section they have read. The teacher will answer the questions as completely as possible. The teacher will ask the student to rephrase things that can be answered due to poor syntax and/or incorrect logic.
 This program is differentiated for students with special needs.
Checking For Understanding:
 Teacher will walk around and watch the modeling of the groups in the strategy and will give them the times to switch.
 Students will be asked to talk about what they thought about the procedure through a 3-2-1 strategy. Find three things you liked about this strategy when used with reading; tell two things you didn't like; find one thing your would do differently the next time you read a passage.
