  1. Integrated Reading and Writing D. J. Henry Speaking About English Pearson Webinar April 4, 2014

  2. Reading and Writing • May be integrated as a communication cycle, but are not simultaneous: Reader comprehends and responds to writer Writer sends information Reader receives information

  3. Inferring and Implying Meaning as Readers and Writers

  4. Inferring and Implying Ideas

  5. Shared Cognitive Behaviors of Readers and Writers • Occur in phases: Before, During, and After • Questioning • Predicting/Inferring • Clarifying • Making Connections • Re-reading/Revising • Visualizing • Summarizing

  6. Integrated Reading/Writing Builds on Our Existing Sound Pedagogies • Reading to Learn: Build and Expand Prior Knowledge • Ideas • Language • Structure • Connections among Text, World, Other Texts, and Self • Writing to Learn: Deepen and Share Knowledge • Ideas • Model Language and Structure • Connections among text, world, other texts, and self • Self-Assess (Metacognition) • Prove Mastery • Reader Response: Writing in Response to Reading

  7. Integrated Reading and Writing to Learn • Reading/Writing Journals • Fostering Metacognition • What do I already know (prior knowledge)? • What do I need to know? • What confuses me? • What have I learned? • Think-aloud (Verbal and Written) • Description of the mental process one goes through to make meaning — “eavesdropping on someone’s thinking” • Strategy for monitoring and repairing comprehension

  9. Think-Aloud Prompts: Reading Comprehension • Predictions • “I’m guessing that ___ will happen next.” “I bet that....” “I wonder if...” “I think this piece will be about…” “I imagine the author believes...” “I think the tone of this piece will be...” • Personal Connections • “This is like...” “This reminds me of ...” “This could help me with...” “This is helping me with/to think about/to make plans for...” • Text Connections • “This agrees/disagrees with…” “What have I read that supports this idea?” What have I read that offers an opposing view?” • Visualize • “In my mind’s eye,…” “I imagine…” “I see...” or “I have a picture of…” • Clarify (Monitor Comprehension) • “This is (not) making sense because...” “This is (not) what I expected because...” “This connects (or doesn’t) to what I already read/already know because...” • Address/Repair Confusion • “Maybe I’d better...” “Something I could do is...” “Since I don’t understand this word, a good strategy would be to....” “First I saw, but now I see....” “What I thought this was about no longer makes sense because...” “I need to revise my thinking by...” “Maybe I need to consider...” Source: “Prompts that Guide Students to Use General Reading Strategies.” Scholastic. 3 April 2014. <http://www.scholastic.com/teachers/article/collateral_resources/pdf/r/reading_bestpractices_comprehension_promptsthatguide.pdf>.

  10. Write-Aloud Prompts • Question • “Who is my audience?” “I am thinking about writing a _______ about ________ because...” • Predict/Infer • My audience needs to know…” “The best way to organize details may be…” “The most appropriate tone to use is…” • Clarify • “To brainstorm ideas, I...” “Which words best reveal my meaning?” • Visualize • “I used a _____ concept map because…” “Which similes or metaphors would help me make my point?” • Summarize • “What is my main idea or central point?” • Making Connections • “How does this information relate to the world?” “Why should this audience know about this information?” What have I read that supports this information?” “What might be some reasonable opposing views to my ideas? • Other Possible Prompts • “I chose the title ______ because...”“I decided to begin my piece with _______ because...”“My tone is _____ because...” • “I revised ________ because....” • How did my brainstorming help generate details? • How did my brainstorming help me organize ideas? • When during the writing process did I provide transitions?
