Section 3 what instruction intentional reading instruction

Section 3: What Instruction by the Common CoreIntentional Reading Instruction



The teaching of reading is a complex, multilayered effort that requires the orchestration of a myriad of intentional instructional decisions and a variety of instructional techniques…. Organized around the gradual release of responsibility, a comprehensive literacy framework serves as a roadmap to assure teachers provide all students opportunities for the modeling, guided practice, and independent practice necessary to acquire the new and higher-level skills that will allow them to master grade-level text.

Revisiting Gradual Release Of Responsibility that requires the orchestration of a myriad of intentional instructional decisions and a variety of instructional techniques…. Organized around the gradual release of responsibility, a comprehensive literacy framework serves as a roadmap to assure teachers provide all students opportunities for the modeling, guided practice, and independent practice necessary to acquire the new and higher-level skills that will allow them to master grade-level text.  Close Reading withText Dependent Questions



Close reading lessons
‘Close Reading Lessons’ instruction.

  • Analysis of a short piece of complex text

  • Use of text-based questions and discussion

  • Allow for some productive struggling with text

  • Guidance to assist students in closely and actively reading, comprehending and appreciating the text


Additional considerations
Additional Considerations instruction.

  • Close Reading lessons are intentionally employed.

  • Close Reading builds skills and motivation in the reader.


Text complexity
Text Complexity instruction.

It is important that we have a solid understanding of text complexity and text dependent questions.

  • Quantitative Measures

  • Qualitative Characteristics

  • Considerations of Readers and Task


Quantitative dimensions
Quantitative Dimensions instruction.

…refer to those aspects of text complexity, such as word length or frequency, sentence length, and text cohesion, that are difficult … for a human reader to evaluate efficiently… and are thus today typically measured by computer software


Qualitative characteristics
Qualitative Characteristics instruction.

…refer to those aspects of text complexity best measured or only measurable by an attentive human reader, such as levels of meaning or purpose; structure; language conventionality and clarity; and knowledge demands.

  • Levels of Meaning (literary texts) or Purpose (informational texts)

  • Structure

  • Language Conventionality and Clarity

  • Knowledge Demands: Life Experiences (literary texts)

  • Knowledge Demands: Cultural/Literary Knowledge (literary texts)

  • Knowledge Demands: Content/Discipline Knowledge (informational texts)


Matching reader and task
Matching Reader and Task instruction.

…variables specific to particular readers (such as motivation, knowledge, and experiences) and to particular tasks (such as purpose and the complexity of the task assigned and the questions posed) must also be considered… Such assessments are best made by teachers employing their professional judgment, experience, and knowledge of their students and the subject.

Non examples and examples

What instruction.makes Casey’s experiences at bat humorous?

What can you infer from King’sletter about the letter that he received?

“The Gettysburg Address” mentions the year 1776. According to Lincoln’s speech, why is this year significant to the events described in the speech?

Non-Examples and Examples

Not Text-Dependent

Text-Dependent

In “Casey at the Bat,” Casey strikes out. Describe a time when you failed at something.

In “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,” Dr. King discusses nonviolent protest. Discuss, in writing, a time when you wanted to fight against something that you felt was unfair.

In “The Gettysburg Address” Lincoln says the nation is dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Why is equality an important value to promote?


Creating text dependent questions
Creating Text-Dependent Questions instruction.

  • Identify the core understandings & key ideas of the text.

  • Determine reading standard(s) being targeted

  • Start small to build confidence.

  • Target vocabulary and text structure.

  • Tackle tough sections head-on.

  • Create coherent sequence of text-dependent questions.


Alice s adventure in wonderland1
Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland instruction.

3 types of text dependent questions
3 Types instruction.of Text-Dependent Questions

When you're writing or reviewing a set of questions,consider the following three categories:

  • Questions that assess themes and central ideas

  • Questions that assess knowledge of vocabulary

  • Questions that assess syntax and structure


1 themes and central ideas core understanding and key ideas
1 - Themes and Central Ideas: instruction.Core Understanding and Key Ideas

  • Reverse-engineered or backwards-designed

  • Crucial for creating an overarching set of successful questions

  • Critical for creating an appropriate culminating assignment


Alice s adventure in wonderland2
Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland instruction.

  • What text dependent questions might be created to assess the theme or central idea?

    • interactions of characters

    • important events


2 vocabulary
2 - Vocabulary instruction.

Which words should be taught?

  • Essential to understanding text

  • Likely to appear in future reading

    Which words should get more time and attention?

  • More abstract words

  • Words which are part of semantic word family

  • persist vs. checkpoint

  • noticed vs. accident

  • secure, securely, security, secured


Alice s adventure in wonderland3
Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland instruction.

  • What vocabulary words could be targeted?

    • Abstract words

    • Word families

    • Multiple meaning words


3 syntax
3 - Syntax instruction.

  • Syntax can predict student performance as much as vocabulary does.

  • Questions and tasks addressing syntax are powerful.

  • Example:

    • Who are the members of the wolf pack? How many wolves are in the pack? To answer this, pay close attention to the use of commas and semi-colons in the last paragraph on pg. 377. The semi-colons separate or list each member in the pack.


3 structure
3 - Structure instruction.

Text-dependent questions can be crafted to point students’ attention to features of text that enhance understanding


Alice s adventure in wonderland4
Alice’s Adventure instruction.in Wonderland

When thinking about the syntax and structure of this text, what sections could be targeted for text-dependent questions?


Text dependent questions2
Text Dependent Questions instruction.

  • Why wasn’t Alice “burning with curiosity”

    when she initially saw the rabbit? What

    subsequent events led to her feeling

    this way?

  • In the opening paragraph Alice states

    “what is the use of a book… without

    pictures or conversation?” What does

    that sentence reveal about her?


Text dependent questions3
Text Dependent Questions instruction.

  • What details about the rabbit catch

    Alice’s eye in the third paragraph?

  • Around what word does the meaning of

    the third paragraph pivot? How does that

    change the initial meaning of the paragraph

    and channel it in a new direction?


Culminating task exit slip
Culminating Task / Exit Slip instruction.

  • Should relate to core understanding and key ideas.

  • A coherent sequence of textdependent questions will scaffold students toward successfully completing the culminating task.


Goal and strategy
Goal and Strategy instruction.

  • Outcome = Students reading closely

  • Strategy = Text dependent questioning

  • Additional thoughts
    Additional Thoughts Classroom?

    • There is no one right way to have students work with text- dependent questions.

    • Providing for the differing needs of students means providing and scaffolding supports differentially - not asking easier questions or substituting simpler text.

    • Listening and speaking should be built into any sequence of activities along with reading and writing.

      • “Re-read it, think it, talk it, write it”

    • The CCSS require ALL students to read and engage with grade appropriate complex text regularly.


    Discussion questions
    Discussion Questions Classroom?

    • What resources and structures are necessary?

    • What does a classroom look and sound like when evidence-based reading and writing is a priority?

    • What are the opportunities related to the shift toward evidence-based reading and writing?

    • What are the challenges related to the shift toward evidence-based reading and writing? Brainstorm suggestions to problem-solve.
