There were a lot of things that I liked about this video. Teaching strategies that I have not used but plan on are the "Text Sets" and the "Where I'm From" poems.

I've always used picture books in my reading class but more for writing activities, not pre reading activities. I've always realized they were a rich source of thought provoking literature but never thought of using the books as Text Sets for a pre-reading activity.

I have used a post reading activity called Bio Poems, which I think are wonderful, but I love the idea of the "Where I'm From" poems. I will definately start using these in my class.

I liked the engagement of Ms. Pierce with the students while they brainstorm. As with the other teachers in previous videos, her questioning is purposeful and meaningful. I feel like I learn something in each of these videos to make me a better teacher. I love hearing the author's insight to their story telling.
