1. Putting the Pieces Together February’s Literacy Focus: After Reading Strategies

2. HOW do after reading strategies assist in Putting the Pieces Together? The purpose of after-reading strategies is to extend the reading experience by helping the reader to:

3. WHY should it be done? Effective reading does not end with a reader's arrival at the last word of the text. If mastery is not evident, teachers can use this type of feedback to modify strategies for mastery. After Reading strategies assist by: letting teachers evaluate comprehension helping provide feedback for teachers deciding if students can demonstrate evidence of mastery for the task at hand.

4. WHAT are follow- up behaviors? For students to feel a sense of closure, readers engage in the three complementary follow-up behaviors: Retelling Summarizing Evaluating

5. Why are these essential for after reading? Retelling: Oral-Oral Oral-Written Oral-Drawing Written-Oral Written-Drawing Written-Written Summarizing: (essence, condense, meaning) Evaluating (distinguish, determine, detect)

6. WHO is Involved? TEACHERS Most after reading strategy activities will have to be modeled by teacher for students to learn the procedure. In short, spend the time to show them how and they will need less support the next time. STUDENTS Often students need a little push to get them to think outside the box, use their imagination, or fully wrap their brains around what they have just learned. After reading strategies allow students creative ways to explore beyond the text.
