1 Reading 1 - Some practical strategies to help the beginning reader to develop their skills 1

2 Learning Outcomes By the end of the session, students will:  Know that we read texts for a range of purposes  Be aware of a range of skills and knowledge readers use when reading texts  Have revised the structure of the literacy core curriculum  Know some activities for learners to develop their use of context (grammar and meaning), phonic and graphic cues  Apply knowledge of the strategies a reader uses, to identify what skills s/he needs to develop 2

3 The Reading Process - what’s involved? The subject/topic The text structure and key language features The world and society Meaning within sentences Meaning between paragraphs Meanings between sentences Correspondence between spoken and written words Phonological awareness skills Word identification Grammatical awareness Awareness of meaning 3

4 How these are made into a learning programme? Context Syllabus/learner Skills & Knowledge Syllabus/Curriculum Learning Programme Teacher 4

5 Different types of text - letters- s - novel- poem - recipes- a note - DIY instructions- an advert - an article in a newspaper or magazine, - writing on a webpage All of these are texts When you are reading or writing any text, think about the purpose of the text or why it has been written. Also, think of the reason you have for reading the text - what’s your purpose? 5

6 What might the purpose of a text be? An advert might be trying to persuade you to buy something. A letter from school might be to inform you about something. A novel might describe somewhere or someone to you. A car manual might instruct you how to do something to your car. Depending on the purpose of the text, different methods will be used to get the message across to the reader. For more specific information see the Persuasive texts, Informative texts, Instructive texts and Descriptive texts factsheets on: 6

10 The Searchlight Model and Reading Cue System Word recognition, letters, shapes (Graphic Cue) Grammatical Knowledge (Syntactic Cue) Knowledge of Context (Semantic Cue) Sounds and Spellings (Phonic Cue) TEXT 10

11 What cues do you use to read these sentences? 1. The boy ______ the ball. 2. The boy k----- the ball. 3. The boy kicked --- ball. Reading cues 11

12 Grapho-phonics - the link between the sound of a letter or group of letters, and the way they are spelt, their graphical representation Words including the ‘ee’ sound Think of words each containing the sound but spelt in different ways: bebriefthemecaesarian 12

13 Social Sight Vocabulary FormsWork In the streetIn shops 13

14 The Value of the Language Experience Approach It commits the student’s experiences, thoughts and ideas to print. It demystifies the process of creating written material. It creates a relevant context from which you and the student can choose words to work on. It uses the student’s innate knowledge of their speech patterns and vocabulary to help read text. The student is asked to use their judgement in selecting what to include in the text being created. The piece can be as short or as long as the student needs/can cope with, but is still a complete text It creates reading material relevant to your student 14

15 Approaches to teaching reading The ‘Searchlight’ model shows that readers need to be able to use a range of cues to work out meaning. This will involve teachers in developing specific skills and knowledge: Recognising words by their look - Sight Vocabulary Using letters & their sounds to work out words - Phonics Strategies for tackling longer words Using the Context - both of grammar and meaning Developing a wider spoken and heard vocabulary 15
