SchoolwideEnrichmentModelReading Framework
The SEM-R An enrichment-based reading program that seeks to increase reading achievement for all students while also addressing the pressing needs of talented readers.
One Size Fits All
Think Back… Choral Reading Waiting to Read Waiting for others to catch up
To Kill a Mockingbird 	Miss Caroline writes the alphabet on the board and Scout reads it through easily. Suspicious, Miss Caroline asks Scout to read from the reader and from the local paper.  Then she forbids Scout to let Atticus teach her to read anymore. Miss Caroline tells her she can not read at home anymore. Scout explains she doesn't remember learning how to read, but it seems she always knew how. When Miss Caroline forbids her to continue reading, Scout realizes how important it is to her: "Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing."
Many (but not all) talented readers       read early Read at least two grade levels above chronological grade placement Begin reading early and may be self-taught
	Enjoyable activities, “are not natural; they demand an effort that initially one is reluctant to make. But once the interaction starts to provide feedback to the person’s skills, it usually begins to be intrinsically rewarding”         			— Csikszentmihalyi, 1990
Talented readers enjoy the process of reading ,[object Object]
Develop a deeper understanding of particular topics through reading
Demonstrate preferences for non-fiction
Pursue interest-based reading opportunitiesRead avidly and with enjoyment Use reading differently for different purposes Thirst for insight and knowledge through reading Pursue varied interests in texts View books as a way to explore the richness of life
Talented readers have advanced            language skills.  Enjoy the subtleties and complexities of language Demonstrate advanced understanding of language Use expansive vocabulary Use reading to acquire a large repertoire of language skills Use language for humor Display verbal ability in self-expression Use colorful and descriptive phrasing Demonstrate ease in use of language
Talented readers demonstrate advanced        processing skills Retain a large quantity of information for retrieval Automatically integrate prior knowledge in reading Utilize higher-order thinking skills such as analysis and synthesis Process information and thoughts at an accelerated pace Synthesize ideas in a comprehensive way Perceive unusual relationships Grasp complex ideas and nuances
Classroom Observations in 12 Classrooms (Grades 3 & 7) Prepared comparative case studies with 7-10 days of visitation over the course of the year Targeted academically talented readers also identified as academically gifted Compared the instructional and reading experiences of talented readers with those of other students Teachers knew what to do…… They just could not find the time, the help, or the materials to do it well. (Reis, et al., 2004)
Time Spent Reading in School Study by John Goodlad in A Place Called School
External Forces National Reading Panel Report (NRP) No Child Left Behind (NCLB)
Three Goals of SEM-R To increase enjoyment in reading To improve reading fluency, comprehension, and increase reading achievement To encourage students to pursue challenging independent reading
Focus of SEM-R Joyful reading Reading above level Acknowledging and celebrating students’ interests & strengths Challenging conversations about reading Increased self-regulation
Three-Legged Stool Renzulli (1977)     Enrichment Triad Model National Reading Panel (2000)  Need for further research  Vygotsky (1962) Zone of Proximal Development
The Enrichment Triad Model (Renzulli, 1977) Type II Group Training Activities Type I General Exploratory Activities Type III Individual & Small Group Investigations of Real Problems Regular Classroom Environment in General
Key Concepts for Types I, II, & III Enrichment Exposure to new books and genres Self-selection and choice Training in self-regulation and  reading strategies and skills
Zone of Proximal Development If the environment presents no such [challenging] tasks to the adolescent, makes no new demands on him, and does not stimulate his intellect by providing a sequence of new goals, his thinking fails to reach the highest stages, or reaches them with great delay.  	~ Vygotsky

BOOK HOOKS
Basic Book Hook Jacket Author information Back cover Illustration Publication Information
Engage by Questioning
Developing a Question Help your students see themselves as investigators collecting evidence: Ask open-ended questions. Tie answers back to the text. Modeling is a Must! Consider creative, offbeat ideas a bonus.
Exposure to a Wide Range of Books
Text Level ‘But though he’s helped me make sense of what’s happened, and has earned my loyalty, the entire business is so extraordinarily secretive and complicated that I’ve long been convinced I will never learn anything about my past.’
Text Level ‘The first place that I can well remember was a large, pleasant meadow. Over the hedge on one side we looked into a plowed field, and on the other, the gate to our mater’s house.’
	The students have broadened their reading choices due to the fact that they have been introduced to all the genres, and many nonfiction and fiction books, that they may have never picked up.
Employ Skills & Strategies
Complexity of Ideas and Content The student, said the teacher, is crazy. The student said the teacher is crazy.
Complexity of Ideas and Content ‘Before fun was invented, people joined bell-ringing clubs.  As a member at Boston’s Old North Church, Paul spent hours practicing in the belfry tower.’
Given to the most distinguished children’s informational book published in the preceding year. Text Level ‘After sitting atop a virtual bomb and traveling nearly half a million miles; after battling 1202 alarms, low fuel, and frozen fuel slugs; after walking on an airless rock; . . .’
Text Level ‘That year at Perkins had also given Helen a glimpse of her own future. She had learned about another deaf-blind boy named Tommy Stringer. Five-year-old Tommy had lived in a poor house and …’

Day 2 Why do you think that Dr. King’s sister would decide to write a book about her brother?  How does Ms. Anderson’s personality contribute to her success or failure? How do these two books add to the information that we discussed yesterday?
				   Day 3 How do the events in the passages from these two books relate to what was 	going on in the world during the stories’ time periods?  What questions do you have about the time period in which these books took place?  What kind of text could you use to find answers to your questions?

DAY 5 Today’s books are different from the books we’ve book talked the other days this week, but they have a similar theme.  How are they different?

Table Talk Every time I introduce a new book during Phase 1, five students seem to want to read it right away! What should I do? What about the students in my subsequent class periods?
http://www.fun-with-words.com/rebus_puzzles.html
Phase 2 Supported Independent Reading using individual conferences and differentiated reading instruction
Enjoyable activities, in contrast, “are not natural; they demand an effort that initially one is reluctant to make. But once the interaction starts to provide feedback to the person’s skills, it usually begins to be intrinsically rewarding”         — Csikszentmihalyi, 1990
Supported Independent Reading was not sustained silent reading
Individualizing and Differentiating Conferences 	It is important to remember that not all students will need the same strategy instruction at the very same time, but that all students need some instruction if they are reading a book that is adequately challenging. For that reason, be sure that strategy instruction is integrated throughout conferences and differentiated to meet the needs of individual students.
	Phase 2 is a time that the students can’t wait for. Being able to sit anywhere in the class, in any position that they want helps them to really dive deep into their reading.
Phase Two Goals Students will . . . ,[object Object]
Read appropriately challenging books (1 to 1.5 above their current reading level)
Develop self-regulation skills to enable them to read appropriately challenging books for at least 25-35 minutes each day
Have individualized reading instruction that is tailored to each student’s needs,[object Object]
	I have seen gains in their fluency, comprehension, as well as word skills.  	It is truly amazing.
Rules for SIR You must have a book to read If you aren’t enjoying a book and have given it a fair chance (10 pages!), ask someone to help you choose a new one. Remain in your reading area during SIR Only reading is happening Books must be appropriately challenging Do your best reading the whole time
Conferences provided: Support for each student and differentiated instruction Enthusiasm about books Reading skill development and strategies Interest-based reading opportunities Self-regulation/monitoring Literary skill development Opportunity to assess reading level and book match and find optimal challenge level Opportunities to use higher order thinking skill questions Differentiation for all students in skills, questions, and book selection
Explicit Strategy Instruction Support the struggling reader: i.  Decoding 		ii. Fluency Foster Comprehension: i.  Synthesizing ii.  Making inferences iii. Making connections iv. Determining importance  v.  Visualizing vi. Questioning		 vii. Metacognition
Purpose of a Conference Evaluate student’s book selection Comprehension Sophistication of ideas Content Suggest Possibilities Make connections with student interests
What does an individual conference look like? Begin by reviewing the student’s log Inquire about the book Invite the student to read a paragraph or two to you aloud
What does an individual conference look like? 4.   Ask the student a series of questions to spark discussion and enable you to assess comprehension a. Provide support in helping students with decoding and fluency 		b. Foster comprehension through strategy development integrated                     and differentiated throughout conferences 		i.  Synthesizing 		ii.  Making inferences 		iii. Making connections – help students make connections to  	             understand difficult material 		iv. Determining importance  		v.  Visualizing 		vi. Questioning – help students clarify the questions in their 	     mind as they read 		vii. Metacognition – help students identify when they are 	     having trouble concentrating or understanding and why
What does an individual conference look like? c. Evaluate the appropriateness of the student’s book selection for comprehension and sophistication of ideas and content d. Suggest possibilities for further reading and pursuits 5.   Record your meeting
Student reflection on reading Student participation in assessment and review Explicit strategy instruction Purpose for reading and goal setting Efficacy building via specific feedback
	The one on one five minute conferences are the best way for me to monitor each child’s unique learning needs, and be able to use strategies individually for each student that benefits them the most.
	The five minutes with each has been a favorite time for my students, and many times I have had to cut them off.
	I chose to go to them for the conferences to help make them feel more comfortable, and keep them in their reading mode with the least interruption.
	While conferencing with them I have had to get into some funny positions! 
	After our conference is done they pick up where they left off, and stay glued to the book until time is up, at which time everyone MOANS!
	I am able to stretch their minds with the higher level questions that I used in every conference. I absolutely love the bookmarks, and placed them on rings to use.

Classroom Management Strategies to support self-regulation Suns and Clouds Teacher moving around the classroom Have students use post-its when they have a question about a word Students who are really struggling: Personal timer (10 minutes) Listen to books on CD Get up, get a drink, stretch
Classroom Management Set ground rules: State your expectations in advance of the conferences Keep conference interruptions to a minimum Let the students decide how long reading time is.  When the majority of students have lost focus, time is up.
Phase Three:An Exploration of Reading Enrichment
Interest and Rigor Lead To Creative Productivity “We need students to get more deeply interested in things, more involved in them, more engaged in wanting to know, to have projects that they can get excited about and work on over long periods of time, to be stimulated to find things out on their own.”

Editor's Notes

  1. 1, 2. 3. 4. 5. Encourage - Themese
  2. Consider a system for signing up to read the book when it’s available: it could be a list on the board, a sticky note inside the back cover of interested students, or a margarine container where students submit their names and a drawing occurs randomly at the end of the day (sort of like a silent auction)- You may want to have a “display area” (chalk trays work well) where recently featured books are displayed for a certain amount of time or where students who are looking for a new book can peruse. - Another effective strategy is to have related texts (same author, topic, non-fiction, website, etc) and ideas available for interested students
  3. What are your current practices in the classroom? How are you using centers? Do you provide choice in activities?
