2. Can You Read The Following Words? when contains factor form not this other inverse inequality have sides of with be adding do as negative terms variable both side additive equivalent

3. When the inequality contains terms that have the variable as a factor and terms that do not have the variable as a factor on both sides, form an equivalent in equality that has all the terms with the variable as a factor on one side and the terms not having the variable on the other side. This can be accomplished by adding the additive inverse (negatives) of the terms to both sides of the inequality. Now Read This Passage and Solve the Problem

4. Were you able to solve the problem? Why or why not?

5. What Prevented You From Fully Comprehending The Passage?

6. EgregioMichaelangelo,Mi scusod’avertardatocositanto a scriverti.Ti ringraziotanto per la tuaospitalita. Mi sonodivertitamoltissimo in Italia. Sperodiritornare in molto presto. Grazie, Anna

7. Why did Anna write the letter?What did Anna say in the letter?How did Anna feel about her trip?

8. What Prevented You From Fully Comprehending The Passage?

9. The woggly thenk squonked zurrily mire the herp. What Squonked? How did it squonk? Where did it squonk? What kind of thenk is it?

10. Where You Able to Fully Comprehending The Passage?

11. What Does This Tell Us About Comprehension? It is affected by: Understanding of genre or content Familiarity with language & structure Background knowledge Vocabulary knowledge

12. How Do We Get Kids To Comprehend When they lack vocabulary, background knowledge, genre experience? • We give them strategies • We model the strategies • We give them time to practice the strategies while reading

13. COMPREHENSION Explicit Instruction for Developing Strategic, Active, Critical Readers

14. The “BIG FIVE”

17. What Does Research Say About the PROFICIENT READER? Text comprehension can be improved by instruction that helps readers use specific comprehension strategies. • By using conscious plans- sets of steps to make sense of text • By helping students become purposeful, active readers Students can be taught to use comprehension strategies. • Through explicit or direct instruction • Through cooperative learning • Through learning how to use multiple strategies flexibly and as they are needed

19. Strategic Thinking! “True comprehension goes beyond literal understanding and involves the reader’s interaction with text. If students are to become thoughtful, insightful readers, they must extend their thinking beyond a superficial understanding of the text.” Stephanie Harvey and Anne Goudvis

20. What Strategies Should be Taught? Researchers identified strategies that proficient readers use to construct meaning from text. Pearson, Keene, Harvey, Goudvis, Robb and others summarized these strategies.

21. The Comprehension Strategies Identified through Research

22. Use your schema to make connections Text to Self Text to Text Text to World Making connections between the new and the known, building and activating background knowledge.

23. Make mental images “Visualizing is a comprehension strategy that enables readers to make the words on a page real and concrete.” Keene and Zimmerman

25. Make Inferences “Inferring is at the intersection of taking what is known, garnering clues from the text, and thinking ahead to make a judgment, discern a theme, or speculate about what is to come.” Harvey and Goudvis

26. Pick out Important Ideas “Thoughtful readers grasp essential ideas and important information when reading. Readers must differentiate between less important ideas and key ideas that are central to the meaning of the text.” Harvey and Goudvis

27. Synthesize Information The Evolution of Thought Synthesizing is putting together separate parts into a new whole….a process akin to working a jigsaw puzzle. Harvey and Goudvis

28. Metacognition “If confusion disrupts meaning, readers need to stop and clarify their understanding. Readers may use a variety of strategies to “fix up” comprehension when meaning goes awry.” Harvey and Goudvis

32. Instruction in Action… Irene C. Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell Teaching for Comprehending and Fluency Thinking, Talking, and Writing About Reading

33. The Steps to Teaching Reading ComprehensionScaffold to Success MODEL “THINK ALOUD” PROVIDE GUIDED PRACTICE ALLOW FOR INDEPENDENT PRACTICE GIVE MULTIPLE OPPORTUNITIES TO EXPERIMENT USING THE STRATEGIES

34. MODEL “THINK ALOUD” • The teacher explains the strategy. • The teacher demonstrates how to apply the strategy successfully. • The teacher thinks aloud to model the mental processes she uses when she reads. “I DO.”

35. Instructional Approach • Reading Aloud • Thinking Aloud and Coding Text • Lifting Text (overhead projector) • Reasoning Through Text (engaging in conversation)

36. Instructional Approach • Providing Anchor Experiences (mini lessons on strategies) • Rereading for Deeper Meaning (multiple readings of text) • Sharing Our Own Literacy by Modeling With Adult Literature (using more difficult text to teach)

37. Anchor Charts

38. Using SHORT TEXT Magazines Poetry Newspapers Short Stories Essay Picture Books

39. PROVIDE GUIDED PRACTICE • The teacher scaffolds the students’ attempts and supports student thinking, giving feedback during conferring and classroom discussions. • Students share their thinking processes with each other during paired reading and small - and large – group discussions. “WE DO.”

40. ALLOW FOR INDEPENDENT PRACTICE “YOU DO.” • After working with the teacher and with other students, the students try to apply the strategy on their own. • The students receive regular feedback from the teacher and other students.

41. GIVE MULTIPLE OPPORTUNITIES TO EXPERIMENT USING THE STRATEGIES • Whole class discussions • Pair shares • Small informal discussion groups • “Compass” group – four way share • Book Clubs or Literature Circles • Informational Study Groups “I DO. WE DO. YOU DO.”

42. Responses to Reading Authentic, Diverse, Open Ended

43. Ways To Share Thinking • Coding text with sticky notes • Making notes in the margins • Circling, highlighting, framing, bracketing, and underlining the text • Using two-and three-column note forms to explore thinking

44. More Ways to Respond to Reading • Writing and responding in notebooks – Steno notebooks, literature response journals, Think Books • Writing letters to teachers, classmates, others in the school community, authors, illustrators Read me again for deeper understanding!

45. CHILDREN’S CHOICES: Helping Children Choose Text

46. STOP! And use the 5 finger rule when you choose a book! Read a page in the middle of the book. Put up one finger for every “clunk” you have. 0 fingers – too easy 1-3 fingers – just right 4-5 – quite hard – go slow! 5+ - too hard for now
