Trouble Slips Activity (pg.69)

Have students use sticky notes, or strips of paper to mark "trouble areas" in their reading. Have them make notes on these slips of paper, flagging those words and passages that are giving them the hardest time. They may want to line the bookmark up with the text and draw arrows to show the trouble-spots. These slips will provide discussion the following day as they ask each other for clarification on their trouble spots.
