The students will read the passage to the teacher and get “graded”” on their fluency rate, based on their handout. As Rasinski mentions in, Why Reading Fluency Should Be Hot! “an authentic approach to deep or repeated readings involves students rehearsing a text over the course of a day or several days for the purpose of eventually performing he text for an audience.” He also talks about how “this approach to reading allows students to make significant gains in reading with meaningful expression and to demonstrate greater comprehension of passages read orally and silently and allows them to fine greater satisfaction and enjoyment in authentic reading
The teacher incorporates techniques, such as using voice intonations for various characters in the story, thinking aloud, and using hand and facial gestures to captivate the learners’ attention. Readers follow along as the story progresses. Overall, storytelling presents learners with the opportunity to improve their vocabulary, fluency and comprehension. Repeated Reading Strategy Cunningham and Allington (2015) identify repeated reading as an effective way to foster reading fluency. It involves reading a text repeatedly until the learner reads without making errors.
In stage 2 “Discuss it”, the teacher discusses and describes the many strategies used to write different types of writing. During this stage, the teacher can then provide helpful ways to help the students remember the strategies, such as short songs or rhymes, mnemonics, and even acronyms. Stage 3, “Model it”, is when the teacher or proficient peer models the strategy as well as the types of self instruction he or she uses while writing.This allows the student to personalize the strategies taught to what works best for them. During stage 4, students memorize the strategies discussed in stage 2 and 3. To do so, they memorizes each step of the strategy along with one or more of the self instructions modeled in stage 3.
Teaching assistant talks through the process step-by-step to show the children how things are done, for example, how to make, confirm or change predictions. Teaching assistant can model re-reading of the text if the meaning is unclear and can model working out a difficult word. Writing can be modelled by using the whiteboard. Teaching assistant can model how to use strategies to help reading and writing. Through the modelling process the children should get confident enough to talk, think, share and reflect; they should want to be let free to do their
So, it means that for reading comprehension, it is not only about the ability to read the individual words and know the meaning, but it is about understanding the whole passage as well. Reading comprehension is known to be important because even though it is almost a complex thing as it requires our understanding, but it will be very beneficial especially to be used in peer teaching strategies. Pupils can discuss among themselves the ideas they got based on the passage they read. Besides that, Ylvisaker (2006) has also stated that reading comprehension is seemed to be important for pupils to learn as it has a very close connection with listening comprehension but still reading comprehension skill is much
A good way to know you have fully grasped the concept of new information is to continuously practice what was taught. Teachers could emphasize to students how this could help them during class and later on in life. (readingrocket.org) Strategy 3 Teach students to use visual images and other memory strategies: A teacher could make use of using different cues like word substitution to help aid in students memory. The use of word substitution is used normally for information that is hard to remember. These type of word are words that are said and can easily be visualized when heard.
For the student with hearing aid who is De’Janae, it may be best to have that student closer to the book so read the lips of the teacher and focus on hearing with less distraction from student’s voices. A video version may also be necessary to showcase more pictures for connections to the lesson for understanding. These visuals of germs or scenarios on how to catch them as examples can also be best for the four students that are English Language Learners. Germ may be a word that is
Oral Language is when the language is spoken to express ideas, thoughts and even emotion. Before a child learns to read, the child begins to speak and connect through saying the words aloud. With that in mind, a child can identify and connect the words on the page to the picture that appears through their mind base on the concept of oral language. Oral language goes beyond the classroom walls because it starts from the words, saying and ideas that they’ve personally heard and experienced through their life. Therefore, many educators test their students on their Oral Language abilities, and Oral Language is comprised of Phonology, Semantics, Grammar, Morphology, Pragmatics, and Discourse.
I chunked the text chapters, for assigned reading, to discuss topics and characters at specific and appropriate times. Scaffolding will be utilized to aid students in understanding the development of the text. For example, the class will begin with large group discussions lead by the instructor, slowly as the book advances students will discuss topics/characters with small groups, each student leading a different character, and we will end the unit, with the class discussing the reading lead by the students. The instructor will do limited discussing, letting students share ideas with their peers and building ideas off one another. Finally, all materials that are presented to the class contain an image to direct students’ attention to important details.
In literacy, children need to be exposed properly. According to Fisher, Flood, & Lapp, (1999) that good storytelling can help children to challenge their intellect, can well imagine, helping them to know the world and teach them to love reading. When the teacher read the story, it can help children develop their bond or relationship with books. This can help children to be imaginative, to use the language well and form good intellectual (Cullinan, 1987, p.6). After the teacher finished telling stories to children, usually the children will take the book to be explored.
What is/are your approach/approaches to this lesson, please explain your approach? Teaching the lesson on characters viewpoint, I used the bottom-top approach to help students understand what they were looking for when describing the viewpoint of a character. When starting the lesson, I had the student explain to me what is a character and how can the reader know who is the main character. Once students were able to define a character, we changed the discussion to thinking of how every character is different. Students were able to successfully describe to why characters in a story each character is acts or thinks different.
Reading Strategy File One #1: Before Reading Strategy Name of Strategy: Anticipation Guide Description of Strategy: Anticipation guides prepare students for a story or a text. Anticipation guides help to motivate students to read a story, build curiosity and help students predict what will happen in a text or a story before beginning to read it. Anticipation guides also help students to self-monitor their own interactions with a text or story. A typical anticipation guide will invite students to state an opinion or predict something about the main ideas/themes in a story before they begin to read. Students are encouraged to use their prior knowledge and backgrounds when making these predictions.
If they are structured to support student-to-student or group interaction, ELLs are required to use English language to explain concepts and contribute to the work. This gives teachers an opportunity to gauge what the student has learned, and it also helps the student to demonstrate his/her progress in English language development. As an educator I can also informally assess for correct use of language structures and academic vocabulary. I will identify, teach, and post key academic vocabulary and structures for one content lesson each day because students need help to become more aware of how language functions in various modes of communication across the curriculum. My role is to make students understand well enough how language works and also to select materials that will help expand their students ' linguistic horizons.
