Think Aloud

ELLs require explicit linguistic and contextual cues.

Visualize

Monitor

I pictured what was happening here, and it will help me understand ______.

I know I am confused about ___, so I will slow down, rethink about the context of the phrase…

slide4

Stress Individual and Global Characteristics

  • Think Aloud applies to many distinct comprehension strategies:
    • Prediction
    • Prior Knowledge
    • Monitoring
    • Summarization
    • Visualization
    • Questioning
  • Use multiple strategies comprehensively (not sequentially)
slide5

Expand opportunities for guided practice

  • Reinforce individual/global qualities of Think Aloud strategies
      • Different colored post-its or highlighter tape for each strategy
      • Consistent use across subjects, grade levels

Predict

Summarize

slide6

Expand opportunities for guided practice

  • Group students strategically according to language development
      • Pairs provide more opportunities for active practice
      • Foursomes allow for greater linguistic scaffolding
slide7

Let’s practice… Think Aloud

  • Read the passage included in your folder.
  • Reflect on the strategies you used to construct
    • meaning.
  • SPEAK your group members, describing how you
    • comprehend the passage.

Think -Pair -Share

  • Description
    • Strategy designed to provide students with opportunities for critical thought on a given topics enabling them to formulate individual ideas and share these ideas with another student.
  • Benefits to ELLs
    • Formulate inferences, hypotheses, etc. on their own
    • Test ideas
    • Clarify meaning in a non-threatening manner
    • Rehearse before sharing with class
slide9

Let’s practice… Think-Pair-Share

  • Take a moment to think about….
  • Turn to a partner and share your response.
    • Does it make sense to your partner?
    • Are there any questions?
  • Now switch roles. You listen to your partner
  • and provide thoughtful feedback.
slide10

G.I.S.T. Strategy

  • (GeneratingInteraction between Schemata and Text)
  • Description
    • Technique that allows students to internalize a passage by identifying key words from it and writing a summary using those words
  • Benefits to ELLs
    • Can be adapted as L2 proficiency increases
      • Large group activity with teacher modeling
      • Small group or partner formats
    • Promotes vocabulary development
    • Promotes learning of syntactical structures
slide11

Let’s practice… G.I.S.T.

Activate prior knowledge of the text.

Read the passage aloud.

Lead class discussion and make note of 5 – 6 key words.

Craft a summary statement

Students work in pairs or small groups to summarize subsequent passages.

Titanic

As dawn broke on Sunday, April 14, the Titanic was heading into dangerous waters. Captain Smith had already received several warnings from other ships that there was ice in the area.

At first, the captain was not overly concerned. There was often ice in the sea lanes between England and America at that time of year.

By 2:00 that afternoon, though, Captain Smith had received four more ice warnings. To avoid the ice, he ordered his crew to change the course of the ship. The Titanic would now travel farther south than originally planned.

*Passage taken from Titanic, a book in the Magic Tree house series
