Transcript

  • 1. READING ACTIVITIES FOR FICTION AND NONFICTION TEXTS
  • 2. OBJECTIVE  we will review elementary activities, strategies and resources that will help your students grasp context, inferences, and drawing conclusions
  • 3. DEFINITIONS
  • 4. CONTEXT Start seeing this in grade 1 SOL- Use prior and background knowledge as context for new learning.  Defined as - the circumstances that form the setting for an event, statement, or idea, and in terms of which it can be fully understood and assessed.  Also can be the parts of something written or spoken that immediately precede and follow a word or passage and clarify its meaning. 
  • 5. INFERENCE
  • 6. INFERENCE First alluded to in grade 1 SOL - distinguish between information provided by pictures or illustrations and information provided by words in the text.  Defined as an idea that is suggested by the facts or details in a passage 
  • 7. DRAWING CONCLUSIONS VDOE equates drawing conclusions with Simple inferences (Enhanced Scope and Sequence)  Introduced in grade 2  Defined as a decision about what may happen or about the result an event may have 
  • 8. RIGOR    Rigor is more than what you teach and what standards you cover; it's how you teach and how students show you they understand. True rigor is creating an environment in which each student is expected to learn at high levels, each student is supported so he or she can learn at high levels, and each student demonstrates learning at high levels (Barbara Blackburn; 2008) Depth of understanding, depth of questioning, depth in how students apply what they’ve learned, and depth in the process and product related to their learning is really what we’re talking about.
  • 9. Technology Activity CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT TIPS
  • 10. MANAGING THE COMPUTER CENTER Test out the activity yourself (or ask an advanced student to try it) so you know how long the activity actually takes  Introduce the activity to the whole class first  Establish a signal for students to use to indicate that they need help  Designate a “computer center helper” or two  Use Task Cards  Plan a related activity for “early finishers”  Don’t assign more than 2 skill trees in Orchard 
  • 11. MANAGING THE COMPUTER CENTER Set up “classrooms” whenever possible – it will help you track student work.  Use portaportal for individual websites  Ask your TRT to:   help you set up activities  look them over for you  Help students in the computer center  Give you feedback and help you “fix” issues
