  • Semantic Mapping

  • Think Aloud

  • Read Aloud

  • Echo Reading

  • Guided Reading

  • Silent Sustained Reading


Reading response logs

Reading Response Logs

  • Written responses and reactions in journal or notebook

  • Sample Questions:

    • What were your feelings after reading the opening chapter of this book?

    • Did this book make you laugh? Cry? Cringe? Smile? Cheer? Explain.

    • What connections are there between the book and your life? Explain.


Literacy scaffolds

Literacy Scaffolds

  • Reading and writing activities that include teacher or peer assistance in order for the student to be able to fully participate.

  • Based on social learning and Vygotsky’s ZPD

  • Scaffolds are temporary

    • Removed when the student is ready and able to participate in activities without them.


Literacy scaffolds1

Literacy Scaffolds

  • Peer Tutoring / Checking / Monitoring

  • Dialogue Journals

    • I believe, I wonder, I like, I dislike…

  • Comprehension Checks:

    • Story Mapping

      • Characters, Plot,

    • Exit Slips

    • Oral or Written Summary Statements


Semantic mapping

Semantic Mapping

  • Visual strategy for vocabulary expansion and extension of knowledge by displaying in categories words related to one another

  • Builds on prior knowledge

  • Requires teacher modeling


Think aloud

Think Aloud

  • What does the title mean?

  • Where does the story take place?

  • How does this compare with other texts we have read?

  • How do you think the story will end?

  • How does this relate to activities in your life?


Read aloud

Read Aloud

  • Individually

  • Alternate by:

    • Rows

    • Teams

    • Girls v. Boys

    • Halves of the Room

  • Pairs

  • Small Groups


Echo reading

Echo Reading

  • The learner echoes or imitates a skilled reader. 

  • Helps learners:  

    • Gain confidence in reading aloud

    • Read material that might be too difficult for them to read alone

    • Practice proper phrasing and expression.


Guided reading

Guided Reading

Using the context, visual, and structure

cues within stories to generate meaning

  • Students are given unknown vocabulary, grammar, verbs, etc…

  • Length of text may be reduced or shortened

  • Students are encouraged to read for the gist –i.e. general understanding


Guided reading1

Guided Reading

Implementation Guidelines:

  • Small groups with attention to individual needs

  • Short passages

  • Pre-reading activities in small groups

  • During-reading: teacher monitors individuals

  • Post-reading activities for comprehension


Silent sustained reading

Silent Sustained Reading

  • Stephen Krashen in The Power of Reading, said that voluntary (free) reading is the single most beneficial act for increasing one’s reading comprehension and vocabulary retention.


Silent sustained reading1

Silent Sustained Reading

  • Students read for pleasure at designated time(s) throughout the day

    • “Stop, Drop, and Read”

  • Ample reading selections should be provided

    • Varied Topics

    • Varied Levels
