  1. Helping Striving Readers Read at a High School Level Archived Information Barbara J. Ehren, Ed.D. University of Kansas-Center for Research on Learning

  2. About the KU-CRL • Founded in 1978 • Mission: Dramatically improve the performance of at-risk students through research-basedinterventions • $60 million dollars of contracted R&D • International Professional Development Network • Over 175,000 teachers in 3,500 school districts

  3. What is the Strategic Instruction Model (SIM) ?

  4. CRL The Strategic Instruction Model (SIM) is an integrated model of research- validated practices to address many of the needs of diverse learners, primarily focused on adolescents. It has been under development for 25 + years at the University of Kansas-Center for Research on Learning.

  5. SIM Learning Strategies Curriculum Content Enhancement Routines Strategic Tutoring Cooperative Thinking Strategies Team and Problem Solving Strategies Community Building

  14. What is the Content Literacy Continuum (CLC) ?

  15. Content Literacy The listening, speaking, reading and writing skills and strategies necessary to learn in each of the academic disciplines.

  16. Content Literacy is the door to content acquisition.

  17. CLC- A Continuum of Action . Level 1: Ensure mastery of critical content. Level 2: Weave shared strategies across classes. Level 3: Support mastery of shared strategies for targeted strategies. Level 4: Provide more intensive intervention for those who need work on basic literacy elements. Level 5: Deliver more intensive clinical options for those who need it.

  18. Level 1 Enhanced Content Instruction

  19. . Level 1: Ensure mastery of critical content. All students learn critical content required in the core curriculum regardless of literacy levels. Teachers compensate for limited literacy levels by using explicit teaching routines, adaptations, and technology to promote content mastery. all most some For example: The Unit Organizer Routine

  20. Level 2 Embedded Strategy Instruction

  21. . Level 2: Weave shared strategies across classes. Teachers embed selected learning strategies in core curriculum courses through direct explanation, modeling, and required application in content assignments. For example: Teachers teach the steps of a paraphrasing strategy (RAP), regularly model its use, and then embed paraphrasing activities in course activities through the year to create a culture of “reading to retell.”

  22. Self-Questioning • Attend to clues as you read • Say some questions • Keep predictions in mind • Identify the answer • Talk about the answers

  23. Level 3 Intensive Strategy Instruction

  24. Level 3: Support mastery of shared strategies for targeted strategies. . Students who have difficulty mastering the strategies presented in courses by content teachers are provided more instruction in the strategies through specialized, more intensive instruction delivered by support personnel. For example: When core curriculum teachers notice students having difficulty learning and using strategies such as paraphrasing they work with support personnel to provide more intensive instruction.

  25. Self-Questioning • Attend to clues as you read • Say some questions • Keep predictions in mind • Identify the answer • Talk about the answers

  26. Eight Stage Instructional Process 1. Pretest and Make Commitments 2. Describe 3. Model 4. Verbal Practice 5. Controlled Practice 6. Advanced Practice 7. Posttest and Make Commitments 8. Generalization Daily instruction for 6 to 8 weeks in each strategy.

  27. What is Strategic Tutoring? • Usually one-to-one instruction • With a highly skilled instructor • Who assesses, constructs, weaves, and plans for transfer using • Strategies for learning how to learn • While helping youth complete class assignments

  28. Level 4 Basic Skill and Strategy Instruction for Those Below a 4th Grade Level

  29. Level 4: Provide more intensive intervention for those who need work on basic literacy elements. Students learn literacy skills through specialized, direct, and intensive instruction in listening, speaking, reading, and writing through carefully designed and delivered courses. For example: Courses in researched-based reading Programs such as the SRA Corrective Reading Program are created for students.

  30. Level 5 Therapeutic Intervention

  31. Level 5: Deliver a more intensive clinical option for those who need it. Students with underlying language disorders learn the linguistic, related cognitive, metalinguistic, and metacognitive underpinnings they need to acquire content literacy skills and strategies. For example: Speech-language pathologists engage students in curriculum-relevant therapy.

  32. CLC Student Success Sustained Professional Development Effective Delivery Systems Research Validated Instruction + + + Administrative Support

  33. What Can the Content Literacy Continuum Do for High Schools?

  34. Addresses, national state, and district priorities in literacy.

  35. Promotes focus on Content: Rigorous academic standards

  36. Provides an organized approach to implementing IDEA while meeting the needs of other learners, consistent with No Child Left Behind provisions. It’s a good idea!

  37. Provides for different levels of intervention.

  38. Focuses on change at the school level.

  39. Is conceptualized as part of the school improvement process. Dovetails with requirements most states have for school improvement plans. Plan

  40. Represents a structured, systematic effort to package research validated literacy practices. SIM+

  41. Allows flexibility in implementation–starting places may differ depending on where people are and what is going on at the school.

  42. Reorients professional development efforts toward a content literacy team, not just individual teachers using validated practices. KU

  43. Helps professionals differentiate complementary roles.

  44. CLC Wrap it up and take it!
