Using “digital” anticipation guides to help students set a personalized purpose for their reading.

by Ryan Kinser

Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12

In this series of videos, I describe how I use digital anticipation guides, invite participants to form discussion groups based on their answers, and then teach them how to make their own guides using Google Forms.

Part One: Introduction

In part one of the workshop, I introduce digital anticipation guides – what they are, how they work, and how they might work for participants.

Part Two: Single Roundtable

In part two of the workshop, I invite participants to get in groups based on the book they chose as a result of completing an anticipation guide and then discuss the most provocative question they were asked.

Part Three: Make Your Own Anticipation Guides

In part three of the workshop, I give participants a chance to make their own digital anticipation guides and then reflect on how they might use this strategy in their own practice.
