SRE Handouts Osseo

  1. 1. Supporting Adolescent Readers (Scaffolded Reading Experiences)Today’s Objectives: 1.) We can determine how we use text for content area learning. 2.) We can consider how best to lesson plan in order to support and engage our readers with content area texts. 3.) We can explore how to implement that lesson plan in the most effective way through a gradual release of responsibility model. 4.) We can plan our lessons considering what motivates students. We can determine how we use text for content area learning.What is Read: • Kids still use textbook as basic source of information but also venture far beyond it. • Subject matter includes authentic, interesting, and current issues relevant for young people. • Instead of relying upon a single authority, students consult a variety of sources and voices. • Students sample a wide variety of genres. • Reading selections have a range of lengths.How it is read: • Purpose for reading is to gather information, construct meaning and apply knowledge (not to pass a test or complete a study guide). • Teacher selects some, but not all, of the readings. • Not every student reads the same texts—some common readings but also jigsaw and leveled texts. • Teachers teach (and kids use) a repertoire of thinking strategies. • Reading is seen as social, rather than solitary—partner, inquiry groups, teams, etc. • Assessment of kids’ reading relies less on quizzes and worksheets and more on complex products.Subjects Matter, p. 15-16 We can consider how best to lesson plan in order to support and engage our readers with content area texts.Dr. Jen McCarty Plucker Page 1
