The Threads Of Reading


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

How can teachers make sure that all students gain the reading skills they need to be successful in school and in life? In this book, Karen Tankersley describes the six foundational “threads” that students need to study in order to become effective readers: phonemic awareness, phonics and decoding, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension, and higher-order processing. For each area, the author explains how students acquire the reading skills they need and offers a series of skill-building strategies and activities that teachers can use in the classroom. Although reading is perhaps most intensely taught in the kindergarten and 1st-grade classrooms, Tankersley emphasizes that helping students become lifelong readers is a task for all teachers, including content-area teachers in middle and high schools. The Threads of Reading addresses key questions about literacy, such as ◦ What makes a difference in reading achievement? ◦ How much reading time is enough? ◦ How can teachers use writing to build reading skills? ◦ How can teachers help students make meaning from their reading? The strategies in this book address many situations, from individual instruction to small- or large-group instruction, from kindergarten to high school. Teachers will appreciate the multitude of activities provided, and administrators will learn to better evaluate the reading programs in place in their districts and schools. Grounded in both research and “teacher lore” from actual classrooms, this book is a solid guide to helping students become lifelong readers.

Understanding Texts And Readers


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

"Understanding Texts & Readers makes comprehension make sense. In it, Jennifer Serravallo narrows the distance between assessment and instruction. She maps the four fiction and four nonfiction comprehension goals she presented in The Reading Strategies Book to fourteen text levels and shares sample responses that show what to expect from readers at each. Jen begins by untangling the many threads of comprehension: Levels, engagement, stamina, the relevance of texts, and much more. Then level by level she: - calls out with precision how plot and setting, character, vocabulary and figurative language, and themes and ideas change as fiction across levels - specifies how the complexity of main idea, key details, vocabulary, and text features increases in nonfiction texts - points out what to expect from a reader as text characteristics change - provides samples of student responses to texts at each level - shares progressions across levels to support instructional planning"--

Teaching Metacognitive Reading Strategies To Second Language Learners In A Classroom Setting


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: 2, University of Munster, language: English, abstract: Reading is an important skill which does not only provide the ability to gain new information but also acquires new language skills. Grabe identifies effective approaches for reading and determines that good readers need "rapid and automatic word recognition skills," "a large recognition of vocabulary," "sound knowledge of syntactic structure and discourse organization," and "metacognitive awareness of reading purposes and text comprehension" . Successful readers are those who use learning strategies effectively. Academic reading requires the development of strategic reading. Readers have to be aware of their goals in reading and be able to administer strategies effectively. These strategies are to be chosen carefully, depending on their purpose in reading. Only then will the reader be able to check his/ her understanding of the text and solve comprehension problems successfully. Out of the various aspects of teaching reading to second language (L2) learners in a classroom setting, the present essay will focus on metacognitive reading strategies. First, the question will be answered what is meant by the term 'metacognitive reading strategies'. A definition will be presented. Then, the essay provides a theoretic framework of metacognitive reading strategies before reading, while reading and after reading. Finally, there will be two examples of how metacognitive reading strategies can be taught in a classroom setting.

Complete Comprehension Nonfiction


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

As nonfiction books become more sophisticated, they challenge students'' ability to synthesise and accumulate information and sustain comprehension. Longer texts require readers to be more skilled around the goals of: Determining the main idea of of sections, chapters, and the whole book Identifying and separating key details from extraneous information, and understand the relationship between facts Figuring out the meaning of content-specific, technical vocabulary by using the text and features Using text features to support and deepen understanding. Jennifer Serravallo''s Complete Comprehension: Nonfiction supports growth in these goals, all of which contribute to whole-text comprehension and engagement. Complete Comprehension provides everything you need to: assess a student''s whole-book comprehension via each of the four goals evaluate their facility with the component skills of each goal to plan instruction teach reading strategies directly matched to the needs you identify. For those familiar with Jen''s work, this Assess, Evaluate, Teach framework is connected to the comprehension progressions she defined in Understanding Texts & Readers and to the instructional ideas in The Reading Strategies Book. In Complete Comprehension, these three pillars of the framework each receive their own teaching guide. Assess Complete Comprehension includes 28 authentic trade books (two each at levels J to W) by award-winning and beloved authors on topics of interest to young readers. A student chooses from among the texts, then reads independently. As they read, labels affixed in the book cue them to pause their reading and write their answer in response to open-ended prompts on a provided response form. No instructional time is required to obtain these written assessments: Students read and answer prompts on their own while teachers can continue working with other students who are not engaged in the assessment. The Assess guide includes instructions on how to introduce the assessment to the whole class, how to gather and prepare your resources, how to administer the assessment with individual students, how to support book selection, and how and when to assess students. All of the prompts for all 28 books are also included for easy reference. Evaluate Once you''ve received a student''s response form, Jen''s commonsense rubrics in the Evaluate guide help you make sense of the responses and pinpoint opportunities for growth. Spend a short amount of time with these rubrics and your student''s response form in hand, typically 10 to 15 minutes when you first start getting to know the rubrics, and as little as 5 minutes with increased proficiency. Sample student responses from Jen''s own field research, keyed to the progressions she shared in Understanding Texts & Readers, help you determine whether a reader is approximating a skill, is proficient with it, or demonstrates exceptional understanding. Once you''ve evaluated each response on the form, use the Planning Form, a quick tally sheet, and the if-then table that recommends clear next steps pinpointed to the reader''s strengths and needs. The Evaluate guide includes a 4-step protocol for evaluation, suggestions for getting the most out of the rubrics, summaries of each included trade book, guidance on what to look for in students'' responses, and sample student responses. Teach Teachers love The Reading Strategies Book, and Complete Comprehension provides 100+ strategies in the Teach guide: 75+ strategies unique to Complete Comprehension and 20+ variations on some of the most foundational strategies from The Reading Strategies Book. Each strategy is on its own page, and formatted just like those in in The Reading Strategies Book, with classroom charts, lesson language, and mentor text suggestions. Organised with a chapter for each of Jen''s four comprehension goals for nonfiction and one for reader engagement, the Teach guide makes selecting the most beneficial strategy for a student easy.
