  5. 5. © 2015, Jen Jones Mentor Text Titles: various nonfiction titles Common Core Strategy Standards: RIT1.2, RIT.1 MINILESSON PART Language of the Reading Strategy Instruction Mini-Lesson written by Jen Jones Connection (2 minutes) Boys and Girls, I hear you have been learning about the world through books. That is so exciting! I do the same thing. When I want to learn about the world, I read books about the topics and things I want to learn about. Reading about the world through books is just like real life, but in books. Teaching Point (1 minute) “Today, I want to teach you that readers can learn about the world by looking at books and specifically by looking at the front of them closely to help figure out what the book is going to teach you and to get your brain ready to read. One way we do this is by looking at the cover and reading the title. First, we ask “What is the title?” Then we ask “what are the pictures and the illustrations on the cover of the book showing me?” Then, we ask “Does the title and the pictures on the cover match? Finally, we ask, “Do I think I know what this book is going to teach me?” When we ask and answer these questions, we can know the book’s topic.Watch me as I ask these questions. Teach (4 minutes) Listen to me as I think aloud while looking closely at the cover of these books. First , “What is the title?” (Maps & Mapping) Then, “What are the pictures on the cover showing me?” (a hand-drawn map) Then, “Does the title and the cover picture match?” (yes) Finally, “Do I know that this book is going to teach me? (all about maps) Did you see how I asked and answered questions to figure out the topic. Active Engagement (2 minutes) Now it’s your turn to try it out. I will read and stop so you can ask yourselves these questions. Then you will turn and talk to your neighbor about: what is the title? what is the cover picture showing me? do they match? do you know what the book is going to teach you? Is that the topic? I noticed you asked and answered these questions as you looked at the covers carefully. Link (1 minute) “Today we learned that readers can use information on the cover (the title and the cover photo) to determine the book’s topic. One way we do this is by asking: What is the title? What is the cover picture showing me? Does the title and the and cover picture match? Do I know what the book is going to teach me? Today and any day when you are reading nonfiction books about the world, you now know that you can ask these questions to figure out the book’s topic. So, when you go off to your reading places to read today you might ask these questions too to get your brain ready to read.”

  9. 9. 2015, Hello Literacy Teaching With Urgency? Answer these questions to reflect & find out. What are students doing and why are they doing it? Is there a sense of urgency about your teaching and the students' learning? Do students know what it is they are supposed to be learning? And how and where have you communicated this? What percentage of the day are you talking and what percentage of the day are students talking? How regularly are you providing feedback to students, written or oral? And how regularly are students providing you with feedback? (In his 2012 book, Visible Learning for Teachers, Hattie claims that "the most powerful single influence enhancing achievement is feedback." What percentage of the day are you reading to students and what percentage of the day are students reading to themselves, to you, with each other or to each other? How many minutes a day do students spend actually reading? (like "eyes on print" time as Lucy would say) Is the focus of your Guided Reading session aligned to the Teaching Point of your mini- lesson? Is your mini-lesson about 10 minutes? Or are you not aware of time and your mini-lesson turns into a maxi-lesson? Are students receiving solid, strategic, systematic, and explicit instruction in all of The Big 7 areas of ELA? Are students getting an opportunity outside the Active Engagement section of your mini- lesson, to practice and reinforce the skills and strategies taught in the mini-lesson? With peers? With technology? With discussion? (and independently doesn't have to mean alone, sitting and at a desk) Without being assessed on it yet or a grade taken for every practice run? Do students know what to do to solve a problem while you are teaching Guided Reading? How many students are you reaching in a Guided Reading session (complexity, leveled or strategy based groupings)? 1? 2? 4? 6? 8? Are students receiving an intervention in a literacy area they are deficient in? Or are students receiving Progress Monitoring every 10 or 20 days because DPI said so without documentation of, or an actual intervention taking place?
