Follow Your Thinking Tracks! – The Educator's PLN “Follow Your Thinking Tracks” is a great strategy for students to record their thinking while reading. Not only does it help students monitor their understanding of text, but it provides a post-reading opportunity for students to share and reflect on their “road map” of recorded thoughts – essentially, their thinking tracks! This strategy is perfect for literacy across the content-areas and can be modified for ALL grade-levels. What are “Thinking Tracks”? “Thinking Tracks” are student thoughts and ideas that are recorded before, during, and after reading. Cracking “The Code” Students can create their own thinking tracks code or can follow a classroom code established by the teacher. Everyone has a different system they use for text coding, you just need to find the one that works best for YOU!
