They are perfect for promoting the use of pre-reading and during reading strategies. Anticipation guides can be used in many groupings, i.e., independently, small groups, or whole class. Students practice how to make predictions, read for details, and confirm answers. I love to watch my students' eagerness as they excitedly read to see if their predictions were true! I also love the discussion and debates that these guides inspire.
