About This Teaching Strategy
The Anticipation Guides strategy asks students to express their opinions about ideas before they encounter them in a text or unit of study. Completing anticipation guides helps students recognise and connect to themes that surface in their learning.
Use this strategy at the beginning of a unit or before engaging with a text. You can also review anticipation guides at the end of a lesson or unit as a way to help students reflect on how learning new material may have influenced their opinions, perhaps by reinforcing previously held beliefs or by causing ideas to shift.
