  • How timely. We are beginning a book study of the text Teaching Students to Read Like Detectives by Fisher, Frey, and Lapp with the Academic Coaches in ABSS. Our school has had a few mini staff session on the topic as well. Thanks for always sharing your resources with fellow educators! I hate I missed the NCRC. I have yet to attend but always hear great things. But reading your hashtags and fb updates I felt like I was there! ;)

  • 14. SCAFFOLDING CHALLENGING TEXT Source: T. Shanahan, 2012, Learning from Challenging Text
  • 15. Event Coherence Readers must carry character feelings (frustration) from one event to the next as events unfold. Readers “read” a character’s growing motivation by what they do and don’t do, and finally do.

  • 21. Text BASED Questions 1. The text says, “My grandmother was saw the emperor…” who’s telling the story? 2. Using evidence from the text and the illustration , infer where this story takes place. Tell how you know. 3. The author says, “he lost his golden dragon throne.” Talk about the author’s word choice of lost and how it’s used in the context of this page.

  • 23. Awareness of Literacy Devices Literacy devices allow a writer to “show not tell” and communicate ideas in powerful ways. Source: T. Shanahan, 2012, Learning from Challenging Text I’m thinking, “Why don’t we just teach kids “the symbolism doesn’t change” from text to text! A rose always mean beauty, bells always mean freedom, rocks always mean strength, storms always mean hard times, leaves and fall always mean change, etc…”

  • 27. Anticipating Complexity What makes this complex? What will students find confusing? What am I going to do about it?
  • 28. READER-TEXT Considerations 3rd dimension of complexity Language is sparse & plain Uses common words Sentences are often short Little language complexity 6th grade lexile “HOWEVER, many students would have difficulty understanding this simplicity, not because of the book itself but in the interaction between the reader and the book. Few preteens have had the emotional experiences that would prepare them to understand the old man’s determination to maintain hope & dignity in the face of overwhelming odds.” – Shanahan, et.al.
  • 29. Characteristics of… Close Reading • Works best with short passages. • The focus is intense. • It will extend from the passage itself to other part of the text. • It should involve a great deal of exploratory discussion. • It involves rereading. JJ adds..& teachers actually reading the text they are going to teach from.. before the kids do Source: Notice & Note: Strategies for Close Reading by Beers
  • 30. Scoops of Learning for our At-Risk Learners at LMES Scoop One at Their Instructional Reading Level Scoop Three Independent Text Level Scoop Two at The Grade Level Stretch Level + + Reading Session 1 - Teacher A less scaffolding Reading Session 2 - Teacher A or Teacher B more scaffolding Reading Session 3 - Read to Self or Partner independent reading
  • 31. Stretch Level for All However, for students reading at or above the benchmark for their grade level, for any quarter, for example, end of 2nd quarter, 2nd grade benchmark is 19/20, therefore, a child’s instructional level IS their stretch level and instruction in guided reading will be close reading of complex text in the 2/3 stretch band. Their one instructional level scoop IS their stretch scoop.
  • 32. Stretch Level for All However, for students reading below their grade level benchmark, especially for students whose instructional reading level is at least one year below their grade level benchmark, they will receive two scoops of guided reading daily-- one at their instructional level with less scaffolding, and another one on grade level; their stretch scoop, with more scaffolding on complex text in their stretch band.
