Research based strategies that proficient readers use mosiac of thought Document Transcript

  • 1. Research Based Strategies that Proficient Readers Use: (Mosiac of Thought p 22-23) 1. Activating relevant, prior knowledge (schema) before, during, and after reading text. Proficient readers “use prior knowledge to evaluate the adequacy of the model of meaning they have developed” and to store newly learned information with other related memories. 2. Determining the most important ideas and themes in a text. Proficient readers use their conclusions about important ideas to focus their reading and to exclude peripheral or unimportant details from memory. 3. Asking questions of themselves, the authors, and the texts they read. Proficient readers use their questions to clarify and to focus their reading. 4. Creating visual and other sensory images from text during and after reading. These images may include visual, auditory and other sensory connections to the text. Proficient readers use these images to deepen their understanding of the text. 5. Drawing inferences from text. Proficient readers use their prior knowledge (schema) and textual information to draw conclusions, make critical judgments, and form unique interpretations from text. Inferences may occur in the form of conclusions, predictions, or new ideas. 6. Retelling or synthesizing what they have read. Proficient readers attend to the most important information ad to the clarity of the synthesis itself. Readers synthesize in order to better understand what they have read. 7. Utilizing a variety of fix-up strategies to repair comprehension when it breaks down. Proficient readers select appropriate fix-up strategies from one of the six language systems (pragmatic, schematic, semantic, syntactic, lexical, or graphophonic) to best solve a given problem in a given reading situation (i.e. skip ahead or reread, use the context and syntax, or sound it out). Pearson, Roehler, Dole, and Duffy propose that the above strategies become the K-12 reading comprehension curriculum.
