3 Does this make sense? With hocked gems financing him, our hero bravely defied all scornful laughter that tried to prevent his scheme. “Your eyes are deceived” he had said. “An egg not a table correctly typified this unexplored planet.” Now three sturdy sisters sought proof. Forging along sometimes through calm vastness, yet more often over turbulent peaks and valleys. Days became weeks as many doubters spread fearful rumors about the edge. At last from somewhere, welcomed winged creatures appeared signifying momentus success. From: Subjects Matter by Daniels and Heinemann

4 COMPREHENSION Sometimes we spend so much time thinking about the “new stuff” that we don’t realize kids might not know the hidden knowledge

5 Teaching to the “Match” If you’re well matched you say, “I just read it.” If you’re somewhat matched you say, “I got some of it.” If you’re mismatched you say, “I didn’t get it at all.”

6 So what are your choices? “You read it, come back and I’ll tell you what it said.” Or hold a “class” discussion. “We don’t really DO reading in my class.” Kids remain frozen as readers during your hour. You might need to build background knowledge FOR reading not THROUGH reading.

7 Content Area Strategies Pre-Reading Strategies During Reading Strategies Post-Reading Strategies Let’s start with Pre-Reading…

8 Pre-Reading Strategies Set a student up for success Familiarize students with new vocabulary words, concepts and terms Ignite interest in the reading Establish purpose for reading Make connections to their own life, prior knowledge and/or other courses

9 List of Quick Write Prompts I learned… I remember that… I already knew that… I was wrong to think… I would explain… The confusing thing… I was surprised… A person should know… My definition of this… A key term is…because I can tell you that… Something I should share about this is… I want to learn more about… Something that people get wrong about…is… I changed my thinking about… A brief summary of…should include…

10 Difference between: Ask the whole class: “What is an integer?” integer?” Ask the whole class: “Write down and explain what an integer is.”

11 What to do with the writing? Collect the writings Circuit the writings: pass two or three or ten times – as much as you like! Create a gallery walk

12 ABCDEFG HIJKLMN OPQRSTU VWXYZ Sequential Roundtable Alphabet

13 AAssessmentBCComprehendDDifferentiateEFG HIJKLLexileMN OPQQuietRSStrategyTU VWXXeroxYZ

14 Use 7 – 10 minutes Using every letter of the alphabet, try to come up with a word or phrase that fits the unit or topic Ask, “Why should I accept that?” Each group goes up with transparency and each group subsequently puts up only new words. Source: Doug Buehl

15 Just a thought… “If kids don’t ever have to access your discipline through reading it in your class, they’ll never do it on their own.” Doug Buehl

16 Story Impressions Give students a list of words or phrases which they use to write a paragraph anticipating the content of a reading Cut away everything but the key concepts and phrases Advantages: builds anticipation for reading and also allows for more “quick writes” practice Doug Buehl, Classroom Strategies for Interactive Learning

17 Try this… The Great Depression: 1929 to the 1940’s Black Tuesday Failed banks Hobo camps Dust Bowl Young Adults

18 Story Impressions Doing with a partner reduces anxiety and allows for more discussion of content Use as a post-reading summary by adding 5 new words Use this as an essay prompt

19 During Reading Strategies: Help students “hold their thinking” Help students make connections while they read Encourages students to visualize Encourages questioning Helps students improve their ability to self- monitor as they read

20 Q-NOTES Similar to Cornell Notes Go through the text or reading, looking at titles, subheadings and topic sentences Using the left-hand 1/3 of the paper, turn those titles, etc. into questions On the right-hand 2/3 of the paper answer the question with information from the text or reading Use bullets or dashes to help organize your ideas, use symbols and abbreviations to help you take notes more efficiently Source: Jim Burke

21 Turn titles, subheadings & topic sentences into questions in this column Write answers to the questions here __________________________ __________________________ __________________________ __________________________ __________________________ __________________________ __________________________ __________________________ __________________________ Q NOTES Name_________________ Topic________________ Date_____________ Period___________

22 Pairs Read Put students in pairs (duh!) and ask students to determine who is “A” and who is “B”. Students will read the text paragraph by paragraph, with Student A reading the paragraph and Student B paraphrasing what was read, then alternating. Source: ICLE Strategic Reading Kit

23 Alternatives for Pairs Read Students can read silently, then take turns paraphrasing what was read. Students can read silently, then take turns paraphrasing what was read. Students can read, then choose one of the following: 1. Make a comment 2. Ask a question 3. Make a connection

24 The Lesson Research Suggests a New Format Prereading Activities Discussions Predictions Questioning Brainstorming Setting Purpose Guided ACTIVE Silent Reading Activities to clarify, reinforce, extend Knowl- edge Reading Assignment Given Discussion to see if students learned main concepts, what they “should have” learned Independent reading Traditional FormatNew Format Source: McRel

25 Post-Reading Strategies Allows students to process their thinking more deeply and carefully Gives students a clear “record” of their reading and their processing
