Anticipation Guide

This comprehension strategy activates students' prior knowledge, builds curiosity about a new topic before learning about it, and then checks for understanding after the topic is presented.  Before beginning the lesson, students listen to or read several statements about key concepts within the new content and choose whether they agree or disagree. After the lesson presentation, students revisit the Anticipation Guide and see if they still agree with their initial decisions.
