Here's a lesson from Annenberg Learner that depicts the importance of a solid reading foundation by showing students how to read for specific purposes. Appropriate grade level is intermediate, but it can be used successfully with older groups who have not mastered the essentials of reading. The activity is part of a professional development unit on building reading comprehension, and includes several printouts to use with students with enrichment activities. The House activity can be projected on a screen and used with different colored markers to highlight the three different purposes for reading, or print it out and allow your students to do it on their own. You can then use the interactive for discussion and assessment.
