  9. 9. What can a reader do to read and learn from difficult texts?<br />SUPER SIX GROUPS TO THE RESCUE!<br />
  10. 10. The SUPER SIX are parts of a TEAM.<br />Together Everyone Achieves More<br />
  11. 11. PREDICTOR<br />
  12. 12. The PREDICTOR says ONE of the following:<br />The group may say:<br />Based on the title, we can predict this is going to be about ____.<br />We think the next part will be about ____.<br />Based on ____ (a clue), we predict ____.<br />Based on what ____ said/did, we can predict ..<br />“Let’s get started by reading the titles and headings.”<br />“Let’s read the topic sentence of the next paragraph.”<br />“Based on the title/ heading/ topic sentence, who can make a prediction?”<br />
  13. 13. LEAD READER<br />
  14. 14. The LEAD READER says:<br />The lead reader will choose HOW the group will read and may say :<br />“Let’s read this next part…<br />Silently<br />Together quietly in a whisper<br />To a partner”<br />Can you read the next paragraph, please ?<br />Help everyone read in the BEST way to reach your goal.<br />
  15. 15. QUESTIONER<br />
  16. 16. The QUESTIONER may ask:<br />The group asks a few questions that they THINK they may need to answer to understand this text:<br />Who is ____?<br />What is/does ____?<br />When is ____?<br />Where is ____?<br />Why is ____ important?<br />Why does ____ happen?<br />How is ____ like ____?<br />What caused ____ to ____?<br />Why does the author ____?<br />Which sentence best tells ____?<br />How is ___ an example of ___?<br />Based on our reading, what do you think we are expected to know?<br />
  17. 17. CLARIFIER<br /> <br />
  18. 18. The CLARIFIER says:<br />To make words and ideas clear, the group may try a fix-it strategy:<br />Reread<br />Look for little words inside big words<br />Look for root words, prefixes or<br />suffixes<br />Look for commas, parentheses, or<br />bold-face type<br />Think of a similar word<br />Substitute a word<br />Use a reference<br />Ask<br />What parts do we need to make clear?<br />
  19. 19. Sometimes to clarify, you need to look up a word.<br />
  20. 20. DOES IT LOOK RIGHT? DOES IT SOUND RIGHT? DOES IT MAKE SENSE?<br />References like dictionaries, encyclopedias, and maps are useful to have on hand. Using other “fix it “ strategies help the group clear up any confusion about new words and ideas. Solving problems on your own within the group is a great teamwork tool.<br />
  21. 21. SUMMARIZER<br />
  22. 22. The SUMMARIZER says:<br />A group member may use a summary frame to say:<br />SUMMARY FRAME:<br />This story/passage about _________ begins with _________, discusses (or develops) theidea that _________, and ends with _________.<br />“Please state the most important facts or parts of this passage.”<br />
  23. 23. Connecting and Evaluating: Making Our Reading Real, Personal and Reflective<br />BEFORE/ DURING READING: Connector<br />AFTER READING: Evaluator<br />Helps the group makes judgments<br />Helps the group plug in links to other learning and joins parts together<br />
  24. 24. The CONNECTOR/ EVALUATER may say:<br />“ How would you rate this idea/ these ideas? Why?<br />“Do you agree or disagree with this idea/ these ideas ? Why or why not?”<br />This reminds me of something we talked about in class…<br />EXPRESS YOURSELF! Opinions, thoughts, and feelings are okay!<br />
  25. 25. Reading to learn can be easier and FUN when you can use the SUPER SIX!<br />Ahh! The good ole days…NOT! <br />
