AASL’s Position Statement: “ Resource Based Instruction: Role of the School Library Media Specialist”

  • Reading development is a process for attaining literacy by integrating oral and written language experiences into the literature and content areas.

  • Spoken language, reading and writing are learned simultaneously. As students read “real books” and write to communicate, learning becomes relevant, interesting, and motivational and prepares students for lifelong learning.

    (AASL 1999)

  • Where they struggle?

    • According to the Report of the National Literacy Panel on Language-Minority Children and Youth, there is growing evidence that ELL students are often able to perform at or even above the level of their English-speaking peers in the areas of spelling and word recognition, but tend to struggle in the areas of reading vocabulary and comprehension. (Dreher, Gray, 2009)

Where is the reading gap
Where is the Reading Gap Specialists?

An average of six years is needed for ELLs to acquire English proficiency. Many students get stuck in the middle ground of being conversational in English but lacking the breadth of English needed for content area success. (Ogle, & Correa-Kovtun, 2010)

    • Particularly vocabulary in a content area they need for other learning. (Dreher, & Gray, 2009)

  • Collection Development

    • Select books that are at a comfortable reading level that are still within content area.

    • If books can’t be found at a lower level find shorter books that will not be as overwhelming. (Ogle, & Correa-Kovtun, 2010)

Pairing students
Pairing Students Specialists?

  • Pair up students of similar language and reading abilities so they can read, share and discuss texts together.

  • The Process

    • Preview the text together

    • For each two page spread both read the pages silently

    • Partners reread their page and prepare a question to ask their partner

    • Each partner reads a page orally and then asks a question about the text, this encourages them to talk about the text

    • Partners switch roles- reader and listener- as they read section by section.

    • Add words that are learned to a vocabulary notebook

    • (Ogle, & Correa-Kovtun, 2010)
