Schema

I do schema with my students for everything. I post a file on the wall (like one we would put stuff in) and then I write SCHEMA: Our mental file cabinet. Every time before we even start to read something we look at the title and ask ourselves if in our file cabinet there is a folder with that topic on it like crayons. If there is, I put a web on the board with crayons in it and they tell me everything they know. Another good way to tap into schema is give them post-is and have them write it on there. Maybe like a quick energizer. It helps so much once we start to read. I include SCHEMA always and I have found they are making connections everywhere now.
