These seven strategies can be used in any content area and, with minimal prep (10 minutes or less), can be implemented immediately in your classroom.

3. Silent Word Walk

These strategies are printed 2 to a page, with simple directions so you can read them and implement them right away. You can print them and use them as they are, or you might prefer to cut them into ½ pages and organize them using a ring to make a flip book, staple them together, or place them in a container to store them. You could print the pages double sided to cut down on printing.
