Recover and Grow Reading Skills with Zinc's IGNITION
Use Your Senses
The easiest way into any text: start with the words and phrases you can see, smell, touch, taste, or hear in your head: "Swimming in a pond in the rain."
Make It Real
More challenging abstract words only make sense when we think of relevant examples: "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
When students miss a "this" or an "it," they get lost and bored. Connecting pronouns to their antecedents keeps them following the text.
Navigate with Transitions and Punctuation
Transition words and punctuation marks guide us through the layers of meaning in any text.
