Fix up strategies

  1. 1. Fix-Up Strategies  Teachers should repeatedly model the fix-up continuum using think-alouds with a variety of texts.  Following teacher modeling, students are encouraged to self-assess their comprehension using the continuum.  This self-evaluation can be done orally during discussion groups or in reading response logs.  Fix-up continuum: o 1- I do understand and could explain what I have read to others o 2- I sort of understand but probably could not explain what I have read to others o 3- I don’t understand When a student self-assesses at a 2 or a 3:  Re-read (orally/silently)  Partner read with a friend  Discuss material with a friend  Ask teacher for help  Repair comprehension when it breaks down from one of six language systems: o Grapho-Phonic System – provides information about letters and sounds o Lexical or Orthographic System – provides information about words o Syntactic System – provides information about structure of language o Semantic System – provides information about meanings o Schematic System – provides information about prior knowledge and organizes new information o Pragmatic System – provides information about what the reader considers important and what the reader needs to understand  Solve a given reading problem: o Skip ahead o Reread o Use context clues o Use syntax o Sound it out
