How to Create an
Anticipation Guide

There are several ways to construct an anticipation guide for middle and high school students. Most include the following steps (Duffelmeyer, 1994):

  1. Identify the major ideas presented in the reading.
  2. Consider what beliefs your students are likely to have about the topic.
  3. Write general statements that challenge your students' beliefs.
  4. Require students to respond to the statements with either a positive or negative response.
