How did I set it up?
I created an excel sheet and shared with students. (See example here: http://goo.gl/v8bbfo)
Explicit instructions of four reading steps, including Preview, Click and Clunk, Get the gist, and Wrap up, were given to students. We discussed the purposes for reading at different stages and the function of each step serves. Additionally, we also talked about why it's important not to rely on the use of dictionaries when encountering with unfamiliar vocabulary.
This article, Using Collaborative Strategic Reading, gives a very clear explanation regarding the four reading comprehension steps (strategies) and provides guidance regarding the actual implementation.
I have also modified the strategies to decode Clunk words for my Mandarin students. Please see the poster below.
