4 Building Background’s Sub Components Concepts linked to student’s backgroundsTo correct their misconceptionsTo plug their learning holesTo further develop relationshipsLinks between past learning and new learningMaking connections (text to self, text to text and text to world)Filing information in more than one place in your brain increases retention of learningDeveloping key vocabulary: academic language

Tier 1: common words, nouns, sight words, high-frequency words and verbs (ones kids SHOULD already know)green, Selah, jump, he, was, firstTier 2: academic words found in text books but not often in general conversation (Goldilocks Words)pictograph, prediction, factTier 3: uncommon words, rarely found in school texts except in particular contexts (words kids need RARELY)ambiguous, serendipity
6 Insert Method SIOP Book Page #33 In partners, students read a non-fiction text using a coding system (use any text)Great for increasing “think while you read” skills4 easy codes:Check mark for something already knownQuestion mark for something confusingExclamation mark for something new or surprisingPlus for something that is new and interestingPay close attention to students’ markings so you can address questions and new learning.
7 Think, Write, Timed Group Pair, Share Start with the person who has taught for the least amount of time in US schools, then continue around in a clockwise manner.For 1 minute, share with you group one way you could intervene about the questions and new learnings observed through the Insert Method.If the “sharer” has shared all the want to and if there is additional time, they may be interviewed by the team. All students are welcome to write all ideas down. (Accountability?)
