What is a "Concept/Question Board?"

The Concept/Question Board is an integral part of Open Court Reading.

It is used in grades K-5 at Los Feliz School.

The Teacher’s Edition explains the board as follows:


“The Concept/Question Board is a bulletin board or chart. The students can share their growing knowledge about a unit theme or concept by posting on the Board newspaper clippings, magazine articles, information taken from the Internet, photographs, and other items. […] In addition, the board gives students an outlet for questions that arise as they read on their own. […] The Concept/Question Board lets students know that questions are not problems, but a way of learning. Questions thus become a springboard for further exploration. […] The board should change constantly, reflecting the developing and changing interests of the class."
