READING STRATEGIES How do I listen to the voices in my head? by James Vineyard Sachse High School ELA Department Information from I Read It, But I Don’t Get It by Cris Tovani
WHAT DOES A GOOD READER DO? • Good readers: • Know it is their responsibility to monitor comprehension • Only hears the voice that reads the words when their brains stop imagining the action occurring • Know when the voice inside their head starts distracting them away from the text • Can remember what they just read • Know when they are not getting clarifying questions answered
WHAT DOES A GOOD READER DO? • Good readers: • Know how to identify their own confusion with a text • Know how to get themselves unstuck while reading a text • LISTEN TO THE VOICES IN THEIR HEADS!
THE RECITING VOICE • The voice that repeats the words the reader physically sees on the page • Does not draw meaning from the text
THE CONVERSATION VOICE • The voice that talks back and forth with the text • Represents the reader’s own thoughts about the text • Interacts with the text
THE INTERACTING VOICE • Deepens the reader’s understanding of the text • This voice: • Makes connections • Asks questions • Identifies confusion • Agrees and disagrees with ideas
THE DISTRACTING VOICE • Ruh-roh! Pulls the reader away from the meaning of the text • Zoikes! Begins a conversation with the reading, but then goes off-task with a question, a connection, or an idea • Jinkies! The reader is thinking of something unrelated to the text
Make a connection Make a prediction Stop and think about it Ask a question Write about it Visualize it Retell it Reread it Notice patterns in it Slow down or speed up SO, WHAT DO I DO TO GET AWAY FROM THE DISTRACTING VOICE?
