(What I know, what I want
to know, what I learned)
good reader is someone who thinks before, during, and after their
reading experience. This lesson is going to provide an opportunity for
the reader to interact with an online magazine article about Orcas. The
student will be responsible for completing a K-W-L chart either online
or as a handout. The purpose of this lesson is to teach students the
importance of activating prior knowledge while reading.

is all new! You can find the new site at http://teach.fcps.net/lbc.
We have made some major changes based on your feedback. Changes for
students include the ability to...
- Upload pictures with book reviews.
- Save work, so students can return later to finish
Grade-level appropriate writing prompts and examples
have been added to each step to help students and teachers better
understand the process. We are working on a live chat where classes
across the district can meet and discuss the books they have read and
possibly meet with local guest authors.
Changes for teachers and guest include:
- Teacher approval of student submissions.
- Teacher comments for suggestions, encouragement,
even grading (only visible to the student submitter).
- Guest comments (so Grandma in Florida can say
some nice things about their grandchild's work!)
