Assignment In this session, you analyzed effective approaches for building students' interpretation skills. You will now write a one- to two-page summary of what you have learned and how you plan to apply it in your classroom. Review the notes you have taken during this session, as well as your answers to the Reflect on Your Experience questions. Use the questions below to guide your writing.
  1. Reflect on the interpretive task activity that you designed in the Put It Into Practice section. Do you feel that this approach would help your students process meaning without needing to have every term defined in advance? If so, how? If not, how might you revise the activity to achieve this goal?
  1. Review your answer to the second question in the Reflect on Your Experience section (What is the difference between comprehending a text and interpreting a text?). Would you make any changes or additions to your answer based on your new learning?
  1. How might you facilitate an activity in which students have the opportunity to interpret texts creatively? How would you field students' questions that are open-ended and may have multiple answers, or that require additional research to answer?
  1. How would you decide if an interpretive task activity was successful?
Assignment Submit your summary as an assignment.
