  • Activating "Priming the cognitive pump" in order to recall relevent prior knowledge and experiences from long-term memory in order to extract and construct meaning from text Inferring Bringing together what is spoken (written) in the text, what is unspoken (unwritten) in the text, and what is already known by the reader in order to extract and construct meaning from the text Monitoring-Clarifying Thinking about how and what one is reading, both during and after the act of reading, for purposes of determining if one is comprehending the text combined with the ability to clarify and fix up any mix-ups Questioning Engaging in learning dialogues with text (authors), peers, and teachers through self-questioning, question generation, and question answering Searching-Selecting Searching a variety of sources in order to select appropriate information to answer questions, define words and terms, clarify misunderstandings, solve problems, or gather information Summarizing Restating the meaning of text in one's own words — different words from those used in the original text Visualizing-Organizing

Aligning Philosophy and Practice - nashworld - 34 views

    One of my foundational rules of classroom engagement is simply this: never be the first one to open your mouth and start talking about any topic. Twenty years in the classroom taught me that one. Never assume. Never take prior knowledge for granted. Listen first, then act. Never presume to know what the students in front of you are capable of. They'll show you if you are bold enough to listen.

5 Reasons Why Reading Conferences Matter - Especially in High School English | Three Te... - 57 views

  • Reading Conferences
  • Every child needs one-on-one conversations with an adult as often as possible.
  • One way to show our adolescent students that we care is to talk with them. And face-to-face conversations about books and reading is a pretty safe way to do so, not to mention that we model authentic conversations about reading when we do.

  • The more we grow in empathy, the better relationship we’ll have with our friends, our families and all other people we associate with — at least the idealist in me will cling to that hope as I continue to talk to students about books and reading.
  • circles about engagement.
      • Try questions like:

        • How’s it going? (Thanks, Carl Anderson)
        • Why did you choose this book?
        • Do you know anyone else who has read this book? What’d she think?
        • How’d you find the time to read this week?
        • What’s standing in the way of your reading time?
      • Try questions like:

        • What character reminds you of yourself or someone you know?
        • What part of the story is the most similar/different to your life?
        • Why do you think the author makes that happen in the book?
        • What does he want us to learn about life?
        • How does this story/character/conflict/event make you think about life differently?
  • when I take the time to talk to each student individually, and reinforce the skill in a quick chat, the application of that skill some how seeps into their brains much deeper.
      • Try questions like:

        • Tell me about _____ that we learned in class today. How does that relate to your book/character?
        • Remember when we learned _____, tell me how/where you see that in your book.
        • Think about when we practiced ___, where does the author do that in your book?
        • You’ve improved with ___, how could you use that skill for _______?
  • We must provide opportunities for our students to grow into confident and competent readers and writers in order to handle the rigor and complexity of post high school education and beyond. We must remember to focus on literacy not on the literature
  • We must validate our readers, ask questions that spark confidence, avoid questions that demean or make the student defensive, and at the same time challenge our readers into more complex texts.
      • Try questions like:

        • On a scale of 1 to 10 how complex is this book for you? Why?
        • What do you do when the reading gets difficult?
        • Of all the books you’ve read this year, which was the most challenging? Why?
        • How’s it going finding vocabulary for your personal dictionary?
        • Tell me how you are keeping track of the parallel storyline?
  • I ask students about their confidence levels in our little chats, and they tell me they know they have grown as a readers. This is the best kind of reward.
      • Try questions like:

        • How has your confidence grown as you’ve read this year?
        • What do you think is the one thing we’ve done in class that’s helped you improve so much as a reader?
        • How will the habits you’ve created in class help you in the reading you’ll have to do in college?
        • Why do you think you’ve grown so much as a reader the past few weeks?
        • What’s different for you now in the way you learn than how you learned before?
        • Describe for me the characteristics you have that make you a reader.
  • What kinds of questions work for you in your reading conferences?
