3 Mattie Lindsay, Ganesha High School, Pomona, California Duolog: A Technique for Improving Reading 1.1. identify and use the literal and figurative meanings of words, and understand word derivation 1.2. distinguish between the denotative and connotative meanings of words, and interpret the connotative power of words 2.3. generate relevant questions about readings that can be researched 2.5. extend ideas presented in primary or secondary sources through original analysis, evaluation, and elaboration 2.6. demonstrate use of sophisticated learning tools by following technical directions (e.g., graphic calculators, specialized software programs, access guides to Internet worldwide websites) CTAP 295 Teaching with Technology Standards Addressed:

4 Learning Expectations: To learn better ways to organize and train teachers to integrate technology into their curriculums To learn to create standards-based lessons and web pages To guide students in implementing a standards-based lesson Mattie Lindsay, Ganesha High School, Pomona, California Duolog: A Technique for Improving Reading CTAP 295 Teaching with Technology

6 Mattie Lindsay, Ganesha High School, Pomona, California Duolog: A Technique for Improving Reading LEP students were less afraid to read orally and did more oral reading Students found high interest, multicultural reading online Increased vocabulary skills Increased Internet search skills Increased word processing skills Successes: CTAP 295 Teaching with Technology

7 Mattie Lindsay, Ganesha High School, Pomona, California Duolog: A Technique for Improving Reading It was sometimes difficult to keep the noise level at a reasonable level so that students could hear each other and correct mistakes. There were not always enough computers available for online Duolog reading. Students often had problems scheduling out of class reading with their Duolog partner. Shortcomings: CTAP 295 Teaching with Technology

8 Mattie Lindsay, Ganesha High School, Pomona, California Duolog: A Technique for Improving Reading Student Data Using the SAT9 reading scores, teacher observations and the LR Reading Scale 3, Grades9-12, I found that the greatest improvement was from Literal to Somewhat Accomplished, and the Moderately Accomplished and the Accomplished readers evened out with an increase in Accomplished readers.LR Reading Scale 3, Grades9-12, CTAP 295 Teaching with Technology

9 Mattie Lindsay, Ganesha High School, Pomona, California Duolog: A Technique for Improving Reading The greatest reading improvements were at the two lowest levels which was what I wanted. I would, however, change the amount of time allocated to Duolog reading. Two times a week was good, but more time was needed for greater improvement. Next year I plan to have after school Duolog reading, using in class materials and online reading. Revisions CTAP 295 Teaching with Technology

10 Mattie Lindsay, Ganesha High School, Pomona, California Duolog: A Technique for Improving Reading Summary As a CTAP Mentor my greatest learning experience has been learning how to organize and implement workshop trainings for teachers. Also, using data from rubrics other than standardized test to monitor my students progress has also been very helpful. Learning to organize and use that data for student improvement will aid me for years to come. CTAP 295 Teaching with Technology
