2 Literacy + learning in secondary classes Van Gogh knew that colours can produce moods, emotions and feelings in those looking at paintings. Night Life in Arles by van Gogh has colours that lead to strong feelings.He referred to these colours are ‘blood red’ and ‘pale sulphur’. He used them to form an atmosphere that he said was like ‘a devil’s furnace’… to express the powers of darkness in a low bar’. His paintings were strong through this use of colours.Although magnetic videotape has the advantages of being cheap and easy to record and re-record on, it is easily damaged when stored near magnets. Magnets can change the pattern that has been stored on the tape.The films that you see at the cinema are different from videotapes. Chemicals create the picture on the cinema film. The film used in cinemas, like that used in normal cameras, cannot be re-recorded on and is more expensive to make. Cinema films last much longer and produce higher quality pictures.Before readingLike other ancient civilizations, the civilization of ancient Egypt developed around a river — the Nile. It is the country’s lifeblood. Some 6000 kilometres long, it flows from the wet highlands of central Africa through the desert Red Lands, and finally empties through a long delta into the Mediterranean Sea.The Nile’s water, the plants and palms that grew on its banks, and the birds, fish and mammals that lived in and around it all helped to sustain the society of the ancient Egyptians.Solve 5x+7 = 375x+7-7 = 37-75x = 305x ÷ 5= 30÷ 5x = 6After reading4/14/2017
3 What is literacy ?Literacy is the knowledge students use to convert written information to knowledge4/14/2017
4 How do you read?Read the text. Your goal is re-tell it. As you read, reflect on what you do.There are two types of being; the eternal and the transient. The eternal need to return is not exemplified within the collective drama of history, nor can it be nurture through organization. Produce as it will, the eternal is not oriented towards produce. The transient, by its very nature, will end; they want to die, not live eternally.The struggles and education of man in social history had meaning for Marx such that the goal of a body politic free from class conflict so that man might develop as man.4/14/2017

7 Importance of vocabulary for literacy and learning We are going to read about the rules of indoorsoccer / living in ancient Egypt. What do youthink of /see in your mind when you hear this?What are the three phases of GKR?Visualize and organize what is known about the topicExpress this knowledge in words and sentences. (Why in sentences? To connect their knowledge with the text in a coherent way. More of an explanation, would be better no?)Bridge knowledge to the text.and then use this as a foundation for further learning.40 ideas4 ideas4/14/2017

11 What do these ‘ba’ words mean What do these ‘ba’ words mean ? Read aloud the following text and work out what they might mean. What do you do to work out their possible meanings.The trees in the orchard were bacciferous. The berry pickers worked without pause. The basket of baft into which they deposited their conquests were placed abraded their bare arms. If only the farmer had invested in containers made of more expensive and softer fabric.Conversation with the other pickers was difficult. Their baragouin was largely incomprehensible. However, there was no mistaking the batrachophobia shown by the barbigerous giant nearest to them. The first sight of the tree frogs froze him to paralysis. Even his well endowed beard failed to mask the intense fear the batrachian creatures induced in him.The bardocucullus he wore was reminiscent of the outer garmet of sixteenth century monks. The hood exacerbated his baryecoia and he did not hear much of the speech of those around him. This did not mean, however, he was baryphonic; he had no difficulty speaking with the other pickers.Taken from (Munro, 2002)4/14/2017

14 How we think ahead when we read Tom was a tired weight lifter. He had worked hard on the weights for quite a while. It was tiring work. Finally, his coach pointed to a set in the corner: "That's the last for you today". As Tom walked towards it he thought "This barbell looks light", but as he moved closer, he was that it wasdark. "I'll need to paint this one too", he said.4/14/2017

25 How the VELS English Developmental Continuum describes text comprehension knowledge For each six month interval:The comprehending strategies students should be able to use independently and with scaffoldingThe types of texts students are expected to comprehend independentlyThe types of comprehension outcomes you can reasonably expect for able readers, the types of understanding or interpretations they can form of the types of text
26 The comprehending strategies or skills The comprehending strategies or skills are organised into three phases, based on what the readers need to dotowards the end of reading a sessionearly in reading a textwhile reading itEach is matched by an Indicator of Progress for Text Comprehension
27 The strategies and the matching indicators of progress for getting knowledge ready Orienting strategies: early in the reading activity readerswork out or decide the likely topic of a text and use this to organise their understanding as they read.form a reading plan; they show this in the reading actions they say they will use as they read.use its genre to infer it focus or the purpose for which it was written; they show this in the ideas and events they predict it might mention and suggest questions it might answer.
28 While reading strategies: during the reading activity readers The strategies and the matching indicators of progress for while readingrespond emotionally to the activity of reading and engage with it while readingread part of the text at a time, aloud or silently.While reading strategies: during the reading activity readersinfer and predict from the text read so far what might be said.comprehend sentences, using strategies such as paraphrasing and visualizing as they readform a discourse meaning; link the main ideas in each paragraph with the topic and identify the emerging perspective of the writeridentify or work out the meanings of words in the context.form paragraph meanings; link sentence meanings and extract main idea in a paragraph by summarising.say questions answered by particular sentences and paragraphs in the text .
29 The strategies and the matching indicators of progress for getting knowledge ready Reviewing strategies: periodically during the reading activity readersreview and consolidate what they have read so far.review their emotional response to a text and to themselves as readers.review the actions they use while reading.
30 The comprehension or ‘reading outcomes’ for the texts respond emotionally to the activity of reading and engage with it while readingcomprehend the text literally; they locate, select, link and record information from texts.students form interpretations of the texts by using the comprehending actionsidentify and analyse the use of language in the textcomprehend inferentially in various waysanalyse the text in various ways.synthesize ideas in the textinfer the author’s purpose for writing a text in various ways.evaluate the text in various ways.You can use the developmental sequence to locate students who have reading difficulties. The indicators saywhat you need to teach next and how you can monitor their learning progress.
31 VELS 1.75 Text level knowledge Students read short fiction and non-fiction texts that describe less familiar ideas and experiences, in written language forms with reduced supporting illustrations and varying sentence forms and informative prose about familiar topics, with a higher level of unfamiliar vocabulary. The text characteristics are indicative of Reading Recovery levels 12 to 14:varied sentence patterns and written language structures,the development of a complete story,literary language, opportunities to extend readers’ understanding of words and their relationships and specialised vocabularyillustrations that provide low level of support.4/14/2017
32 VELS 1.75 Text level knowledge Reading comprehending strategies : for these texts, studentsOrient their knowledge, get their knowledge ‘ready’ for readingdecide at least two likely topics of a text and ‘sharpen’ or refine their prediction.suggest words that might be encountered in the text and say in sentences what it might say.Describe actions they can use to help them understand what they read, for example, ‘put the pictures in their head’.4/14/2017
33 VELS 1.75 Text level knowledge Reading comprehending strategies : for these texts, studentsUse ‘while reading strategiesread the text aloud fluently, recognise when their reading is inconsistent with the topic, the grammar or the letter clusters and self correct increasingly efficiently.transfer to silent reading the integrated use of the topic of the text, the grammar of the sentence or the letter cluster information and spontaneously self correct using these three sources of information.suggest synonyms for words in the text and possible meanings for unfamiliar words by using its context, the sentence and 1 or more of the letters in itpredict, using the cover, the title and the text they have read so far, whether the text is imaginative or reality-based, what might be said, who, when, where, how and what questions it might answer, infer the feelings of characters,talk about the picture they make while reading a text.use independently the reading strategies that were previously cued and scaffolded by others.4/14/2017
34 VELS 1.75 Text level knowledge Reading comprehending strategies : for these texts, studentsReview and consolidate what they have readreview and consolidate what they have read both when part way through the text and having read itrecall in order the main ideas or events in a text they have read and use connectives to link the main ideas, for example, “first”, “and then..”..describe how reading verse has a different outcome from reading prose.read silently independently for short periods of time and retell ‘in their own words’, do the actions described, arrange sentences cards to tell a story and complete simple cloze activities.talk about how they felt while reading and how reading helped them.4/14/2017
35 VELS 1.75 Text level knowledge Reading comprehension outcomes : for these texts, studentsdisplay literal comprehension by answering questions that relate to information stated explicitly.infer alternative endings for the text, alternative ways of resolving the issue in a narrative.infer the feelings of characters, how they may have felt had events been different, their motives and reasons for their actions, how different characters in a narrative may feel differently about an event.infer the reason for which the text was written.infer how some characters in a text may perceive or feel about other characters in a text and suggest how these feelings may influence how characters behave.link the feeling of characters and events in the story with the experiences of readers.identify how the language used in the text helped readers to have particular feelings or beliefs about it.4/14/2017
36 VELS 2.75 Text level knowledge Students independently read and respond to longer imaginative texts (for example, chapters in narratives about less familiar ideas), plays, poetry and other verse, informative texts of up to 6 paragraphs or sections and expository-persuasive texts.language: descriptive words and phrases, some specific terminology with support, mainly simple sentences with more compound sentences, shift from natural language to book language, increased use of direct speech to carry action, first person, less familiar structures.layout : texts organized into “readable chunks”, print size medium or smaller, illustrations moving away from text support, paragraphs have several sentences and more than one idea, longer chapters, headings, sub-headings with several ideas, contents page and simple glossary contain detail.content : clear story structure with several ideas, main ideas linked into more complex relationships around a theme, characters developed in greater detail, sometimes with thoughts and feelings that add depth, less familiar concepts supported by familiar vocabulary.4/14/2017
37 VELS 1.75 Text level knowledge Use ‘while reading strategiesread the text independently, either silently or aloud as appropriate; they may switch from one mode to the other if necessary for comprehension or other communication purposes.comprehend sentences with increasingly more complex forms and ideas by paraphrasing and then visualizing, for example, (1) sentences with more complex adjectives and adverbs (eg., The old man with the squeaky voice was walking shakily); (2) sentences that ‘draw together’ or summarize 2 or 3 earlier sentences in a paragraph.work out the meanings of unfamiliar words in less redundant contexts where components of the meaning are developed across 3 or more paragraphs in a text and gradually refine their understanding of the term.form paragraph meanings by linking 2 and then 3 sentences; they use synonyms as well as personal and relative pronouns to link matching ideas in different sentences and visualize the sequence of the sentence meanings and what these tell about the main ideas so far (for example, for a narrative, the main characters, the issue, the context).suggest questions that the text answers as they read through it,decide from the text read so far whether it is narrative, factual or persuasive and the writer’s emerging purpose and perspective.infer and predict from the text read so far what might be said, what if … questions the text might answer, predict plausible endings, events, the points of view of the writer and infer the feelings of characters.respond emotionally to the topic and to the activity of reading and themselves as readers.4/14/2017
38 VELS 2.75 Text level knowledge Reading comprehension outcomes : for these texts, studentscomprehend literally information mentioned explicitly; they (1) locate and link cause and effect in successive paragraphs; (2) identify key information such as the characteristics and features of items, individuals and events.infer (1) possible antecedent events and feelings of characters; (2) cause and effect not stated directly; (3) identify and synthesize the descriptions of characters and events across two paragraphs ; (4) infer the main events in a narrative.suggest the author’s purpose for writing the text and evaluate how well it achieved its purpose through its language, text features, identify its intended audience.Analyse (1) how a text uses language and text features to portray the qualities of characters or events; (2) compare 2 or more texts that describe similar events, phenomena, issues or relationships, for example, texts from different cultural or historical perspectives re an issue.For informational text with 3 or more discrete sets of separate facts presented in list of dot point format, theyanswer literal and inferential questions that require linking or comparing datalink a short summary or report with diagramsdo/ say in order the actions a sequence of up to 5 actions in less familiar contexts4/14/2017
39 VELS 1.75 Text level knowledge Reading comprehending strategies : for these texts, studentsReview and consolidate what they have readConsolidate what they read; they (1) suggest or select the summary sentence for a sequence of narrative sentences or a paragraph; and (2) select the paragraph in a narrative that answers a question asked or that provides particular information.talk about the actions they use to comprehend better, for example, visualise a paragraph and say what it said.describe how reading helps them and is a useful activity, for example, to discover what other people are thinking, to teach new ideas efficiently.review their emotional response to the text and to themselves as readers.Consolidate what they read; they (1) suggest or select the summary sentence for a sequence of narrative sentences or a paragraph; and (2) select the paragraph in a narrative that answers a question asked or that provides particular information,4/14/2017
40 VELS 2.75 Text level knowledge Reading comprehending strategies : for these texts, studentsOrient their knowledge, get their knowledge ‘ready’ for readingdecide two or more likely topic/s for a text, suggest words and ideas the text might say and questions it might answer.decide the purposes of different factual texts from their genre, (for example, to tell how to do something, to teach new ideas) and link the purpose with actions they might take after reading and questions they might answer.describe their reading plan, for example, say the actions they might use while reading, how they will keep track of key ideas as they read, identify text information that helps them understand what they read (for example, key words, the questions typically answered by factual text), what they might do if what they read doesn’t make sense.4/14/2017
41 VELS 3.75 Text level knowledge Students independently respond to range of written and multimodal text types and forms. The texts have a range of cultural purposes, for example, to amuse or interest, to inform and to persuade and have associated linguistic structures and features. Types of texts include fiction and nonfiction, film and digital texts, newspapers and magazines and poetry. They have the following characteristicslanguage : use complex sentences, vocabulary that may be culturally and historically referenced, figurative and metaphoric language.layout : lengthy text blocks, paragraphs vary in length, complexity and purpose, longer chapters, detailed contents and glossary, complex diagrams and maps, graphs and tables, with complex labelling.content: texts comprise complex conceptual sequences that involve contexts that change in time, culture and history. The conceptual relationships are unfamiliar to students and unusual characters and are differentiated. Fiction, verse and expository texts include explore an examination of themes of interpersonal relationships, motives and moral /ethical challenges in a range of real and virtual contexts. Nonfiction texts explore a range of relevant factual topics.4/14/2017
42 VELS 3.75 Text level knowledge Reading comprehending strategies : for these texts, studentsOrient their knowledge, get their knowledge ‘ready’ for readingwork out possible topic/s of a text, for example, for an historical novel, an explanation of a technological discovery, an analysis of imagery in poetry or a comparison of newspaper recounts. They predict ideas that may be mentioned and questions it might answer.decide the purposes of a text from its genre, for example, they distinguish between a technological explanation of alternative energy uses and media texts about the value of alternative energy in terms of deciding the questions each text might answer and what each type might tell the reader.describe their reading plan for the types of texts described in 3.00 and include summarising and reviewing.4/14/2017
43 VELS 3.75 Text level knowledge Reading comprehending strategies : for these texts, studentsUse ‘while reading strategiesread the text independently, either silently or aloud as appropriate.comprehend complex sentences that relate to cultural or historical perspectives, values and attitudes and that express sentence meanings in historically/culturally specific ways. They use sentence comprehending strategies such as paraphrasing and visualizing and linking with the topic and purpose of the text to interpret and evaluate matching sentence meanings.work out the meanings of unfamiliar culturally specific words and phrases by linking text information including morphographic, culturally specific semantic and syntactic information.4/14/2017
44 VELS 3.75 Text level knowledge Reading comprehending strategies : for these texts, studentsUse ‘while reading strategiesuse paragraph comprehending strategies that begin to take account of cultural /historical perspectives; they (1) synthesise a discourse meaning across of 2 or 3 sentences in a paragraph and summarize it; (2) use the summary to predict events and infer possible consequences; (4) say the questions answered by each paragraph in the text; (3) use topic sentences for factual texts to identify the main questions likely to be answered by each paragraph .say questions answered by particular sentences and paragraphs in the text. They identify the questions answered by visual presentations such as photographs, diagrams and tables.summarize a sequence of paragraphs in a longer text, taking account of the historical/cultural language and use key words to describe the sequence of main ideas.infer and predict from the text read so far what might be said, what if … questions the text might answer, predict plausible conclusions and outcomes for newspaper articles.respond emotionally to the topic and to the activity of reading and themselves as readers.4/14/2017
45 VELS 3.75 Text level knowledge Reading comprehending strategies : for these texts, studentsReview and consolidate what they have readconsolidate what they read in a range of ways; they suggest or select (1) the summary sentence for paragraphs in a text; and (2) the paragraph that answers a particular question or provides particular information.talk about the actions they use while reading to help themselves to read, for example, how to recognise and use to use historical/cultural perspectives when interpreting text.review their emotional response to a text and to themselves as readers, eg., how reading historical/cultural texts helped them learn and is useful, for example, to discover what other people think, teach new ideas.4/14/2017
46 VELS 3.75 Text level knowledge Reading comprehension outcomes : for these texts, studentscomprehend literally; they locate, select, link and record information from texts. They link images with specific written information and say the main idea of the visual presentations.comprehend inferentially and support their interpretations with evidence both from the text and their general knowledge; they infer (1) possible earlier motives and characteristics; (2) cause and effect across paragraphs; (3) the nature of possible changes by reading between the lines; (4) 'what would happen if......?' by changing ideas in the text; (5) why characters and events are described in particular ways and suggest alternative ways of describing them.identify how texts are constructed for particular purposes and how they present particular cultural or historical values and attitudes.evaluate and compare texts that relate to the same topic from different cultural or historical perspectives in terms of their use of language and form, the topics they examine, their use of imagery, characterisation, dialogue, point of view, plot and setting, their purpose for using text, how they represent characters, points of view and events in different ways.infer and analyse how writers from different cultural or historical perspectives tell us about the feelings, attitudes, beliefs and motives of characters and see how the characters ‘see the world’.evaluate and analyse how writers differ in cultural or historical language they use to communicate.4/14/2017

65 To work out the reading actions demanded by each item A group of teachers analyses each text and its tasks on NAPLAN or other tasks reading using the types of comprehending actions.The group reads each text and works through the tasks. For each task,Use as much as possible a consistent set of action descriptors across the items. This helps you group items that need similar actions and with planning the teaching.Have some students in a class attempt the items again and talk about what they did. Guide them to use ‘think aloud’ strategies.the group decides collaboratively the comprehending actions needed to answer itdecide the action/s a reader needs to use to answer the item correctlyDoes it need readers to use two or more actions in a particular sequence ?4/14/2017

70 Getting ready or orienting actions Focus on possible topic of text. The teacher guides the students to link text with what the readers knows by using the title, the cover, pictures in the text or blurb. What do I think the text is about? What pictures do I make in my mind when I hear the title/look at the cover….. What might happen ?Link ideas in text with what the reader already knows, use mapping, networking. What ideas could it mention ? If it is about ….. what else might it say ?Focus on how the ideas (such as pictures, key words they have identified) might be said : How can I say these ideas in sentences ?Focus on questions it might answer: What are some who / what/ how/ why/ when/ where questions I could ask about it ?Focus on possible words that might be in the text. What words might be in the text ? How would they be spelt ? What other words might be used (synonyms for them) ?Focus on possible reasons or purposes for writing it. What are different ways of thinking about this topic ? Why might the author have written this text ? How might its purpose affect how it is written ?Readers say how they will read, the actions (strategies) they will use. "What will I do as I read/ if I come to a part that I don’t understand ?Focus on reader’s self efficacy as a reader Am I ready to read?

72 Reviewing and post reading actions Link positive emotion response with the text How I liked the text? Were ideas useful /interesting? Did I feel happy / sad ? How could it have grabbed me better ?Review understanding of the text at the various levels. What did the text tell me? The text didn’t say this but if …. ?Why was the text written ? Did it say what I expected it to say ? How well did it achieve its purpose ?How can the text be interpreted from different points of view or perspectives ? What was the writer’s purpose in writing this text ? What techniques used to influence the reader to take a particular interpretation ?Review and evaluate the reading strategies used, particularly the strategies being learnt at the time. What reading actions did I use to help me understand the text ?Store in memory what has been learnt. What key new ideas have I learnt; how has my knowledge changed? How do they fit with what I know already ?Identify the new language and literacy knowledge that has been learnt What new ways of saying things have I learnt ?

77 One way of teaching each strategy Take a text about a topic you are teaching and split it into two parts, each of about 250 words.Write 5 comprehension questions for each part and put these at the end of each part. Try to match up the two parts as much as possible in their difficulty.Ask the students to read the first part by themselves and then answer the questions.Before, or as they read the second part, cue them to use the strategy you are wanting them to learn to use, for example, to paraphrase each sentence as they read. Have them answer the comprehension questions.
78 In which case was it easier to understand the text ? Part APart BRights and privilegesWealthy womenAfter about 1500 BC, wealthier women in ancient Egypt could own and sell property, earn an income, work as part-time priestesses, defend themselves in court, and decide to marry or divorce. They decided who would inherit their belongings, and had custody of any children if there was a divorce. By contrast, women in ancient Greece — even wealthy women — had very little freedom. They lived most of their lives indoors and were regarded as the property of their menfolk.1.How were wealthy women in ancient Egypt more independent than women in ancient Egypt ?2.If your father were a pharaoh in ancient Egypt, what rights could help you be independent ?3.How do we know that ancient Egypt had a legal system ?4.What does leading a privileged life mean ?5.What aspect of a pharaoh’s life doesn’t happen in our culture ?Poor womenBesides caring for their families, poor women helped their men in the ﬁelds, carried water in pots from wells or rivers to their homes, and made bread or beer (both a major part of the diet of ancient Egyptians). They might also work as servants, temple dancers, midwives, perfume makers, musicians, weavers and professional mourners (people who were ‘hired’ to weep and wail during the funeral procession of an ancient Egyptian).Wives and mothersMarriage ceremonies were not a special event; the language of ancient Egypt does not have a word for ‘wedding’. Between wealthy families, marriages were little more than a business arrangement. Some wealthy men had many wives. The ﬁrst wife and her children had the highest status.1.What were some jobs of poor women in ancient Egypt ?2.How do we know the ceremony surrounding death was important in ancient Egypt ?3.How do we know cosmetics were important in ancient Egypt ?4.What does being a professional mourner mean?5.What is one aspect of life in ancient Egypt that doesn’t happen in our culture ?Read this text and answer the questions.

100 Types of professional learning activities Build the literacy teaching strategies into your regular teaching.Embed gradually the literacy strategies into topics you will be teaching during the term. To do this analyse the content you will teach and the written materials you will use. Plan how you will build in the strategies to help you to teach the key content knowledge.For any lesson you need to decide the strategy/ies you will teach explicitly and the strategies you will scaffold.This planning is often done best in small group planning activities where two or more colleagues can work together to do this.Taken from (Munro, 2005)
101 Types of professional learning activities Clarify what effective literacy learning strategies look like.In parallel with the literacy teaching, identify what the students will be doing, saying when they are learning.
102 Types of professional learning activities Try out or trial parts of the literacy teaching proceduresAfter you have planned how you will embed particular literacy teaching procedures in topics you will teach and you have decided what the student learning strategies will look like, decide how you will try out or trial parts of the literacy teaching procedures in your teaching. It is often a good idea to do this in a small way first so that you can retain control.How do you monitor this ? Use the indicators of progress in student learning you decided earlier.
103 Types of professional learning activities Coaching and /or demonstration of literacy teaching in your class ?You may want to see the teaching procedures demonstrated/ modelled by peers ? Will coaching in the context of your class be implemented ?How often do you receive feedback from peers re your innovations in teaching ? Your colleague can evaluate your teaching using the checklist described earlier.
104 Types of professional learning activities Work on building a group knowledge of the literacy teachingMake the opportunity to build group knowledge of the literacy teaching with colleagues, where you can share and pool the new teaching experiences with colleagues also working on this and with ‘critical friends’ who are not implementing this.This group knowledge provides a platform for further professional learning. It ensures that every teacher’s knowledge is enhanced, every one is ‘talking the same language’ and teachers can share their talents, discoveries and knowledge.Taken from (Munro, 2005)
105 Types of professional learning activities Work on building a group knowledge of the literacy teachingMake time to reflect on your professional practice.Try to get the opportunity to reflect regularly on how the innovative literacy teaching professional practice is going.Reflecting backwards in time over what has happened allows you to evaluate events and see possible links and levers to pull that you didn’t see at the time.
