This is a great idea for a poster to put up in your classroom to discuss with the students how to think when reading. It covers 6 ways to think while reading; summarize, question, connect, infer, visualize, and predict. I would make this poster and put it up in my classroom to help model thinking and guide my students thinking process while reading.
