Sort and Predict

Suggested Grades



Students will categorize key vocabulary and/or ideas from a text. This strategy encourages students to apply what they already know to the categorization techniques that they use as well make predictions about what the text may be about. As well, students may be introduced to vocabulary that might give them some difficulties before they dive into the text.


This strategy can be done individually, in small groups, or as a class.
