A Great Way To Engage Students In A Text...Before They Read It!

Lisa Scumpieru recently discovered a great way to use Formative while engaging her students in "The Great Gatsby". She inserts quotes from what they have yet to read and let's them guess their meaning! This is awesome because it helps students infer based on what they know about characters, make real-life connections, and get excited to find out what happens next in the story!


Using Formative, Lisa can project different guesses to enhance before and after reading discussions. Plus, her colleague and fellow Formative Educator, Katie Lingg, was able to observe, learn, and take these great pics!
