Title: Reading Strategies

Reading Strategies
  • To Enhance 6th-8th Grade

Create Norms
  • What norms are necessary to ensure that our two
    days are productive?

Picking Stickies
  • What burning questions do you have about the
    standards or standards training?
  • Where have you taught and how long?
  • Have you read a good book lately (professional
    reading or pleasure reading)?

Picking Stickies
  1. Find a person in the room who is wearing the same
    (or a similar) color as you.
  2. Share the information on your post-it notes.
  3. Write down any book titles or burning questions
    that interest you.
  4. Raise your hand to locate another partner and
    repeat steps 1-4 until the timer stops.
  5. Place your burning questions on the Parking Lot.

Standards Review
  • Former
  • READING Standards
  • New ELA Standards
  • Compare and Contrast
  • What do you notice about the
  • language
  • organization
  • focus on reading
  • Draw a Conclusion
  • Which standards would be more beneficial to the
    students in your reading class? Why?
  • Choose a speaker to present this information to
    the group.

  • To give teachers more strategies to encourage
    their students to use higher order thinking
  • To review the reading standards and understand
    that not all reading standards are embedded in
    the new Language Arts standards.

Getting to Know the Language of the Standards
1. Locate your counterpart
  1. Introduce Yourselves Name, Current Job Title,
  • Review your word and definition.

4. Gather around the Word Wall.
  • Each group will share the word and definition
    with the group.

6. Each group will meet another group and
exchange information.
7. We will meet at the Word Wall to present the
words and place words and definitions on the wall
next to the visual
  • How can you use this activity in the classroom?
  • What is the benefit of using a Word Wall?
  • Interactive vs. Stagnant
  • Organization of Word Wall
  • Progressive Word Wall vs. Traditional

Progressive Word Wall
  • With a progressive word wall, the students are
    responsible for adding an application to the
  • Multiple Exposures
  • If it takes at least 14 times for a student to
    learn a word by sight, think about the number of
    words a student can learn by interacting with it
    on a daily basis.

On The Fence Year Round School?
  • Pre-Reading/ Post-Reading
  • Students are able to discuss points of view
    without bias and those who are undecided are
    able to hear discussion from each side. Those on
    the fence then choose a side.

On the Fence
  1. Should MNPS move to a year-round calendar?
  2. Write your rationale under YES or NO.
  3. Stand on either side of the fence to indicate
    your answer to the question. Be prepared to
    defend your position.
  4. Read the article(s).
  5. Write your conclusion. Did you change your mind?
    Why? / Why not?

QVCIPC Created By Donna Moore
  • Mnemonic Device
  • QVC Is Pretty Cool
  • Makes students aware of comprehension strategies
    and facilitates open discussion.
  • Is a before, during, and after reading strategy.
  • Can be used in all subject areas.

  • Question
  • Visualize
  • Connect
  • Infer
  • Predict
  • Conclude

  • What is Happening?
  • Where?
  • When?
  • Why?
  • Who?
  • Did What?

  • I See
  • ----------------------------------------------
  • Allows students to discuss how they see the story
    as they are reading.
  • This DOES NOT remind them of something in their
    own life.

  • This reminds me of
  • ----------------------------------------------
  • In connecting with the story, students are able
    to talk about events in their own lives, other
    texts, and the world that relate to the story.

  • I think because
  • ----------------------------------------------
  • Students must explain why they think the way they
    do. Students apply more to their answers by being
    able to explain.

  • I Predict because
  • ----------------------------------------------
  • Have students explain why they think it will
    happen. Creates more discussion and deeper
    answers as they read.

  • My conclusion is
  • ----------------------------------------------
  • Students are able to give more meaningful
    conclusions to their writings and discussions by
    using these six strategies.

  • Question Who? What? When? Where? Why? Did
  • Visualize I see
  • Connect This reminds me of
  • Infer I thinkbecause
  • Predict I predictbecause
  • Conclude My conclusion is

Think Silently
  • Use non-print text or short text
  • Give students opportunities to use visualizations
    to express their ideas.

1. Read the article and mark it using QVCIPC,
highlighting, etc.
  • Number off
  • 1 - ___
  • Evens sit in the inner circle odds sit in the
    outer circle.

4. Participants in the inner circle discuss the
  • If an outer-circle participant wishes to discuss,
    s/he must stand up, tap an inner-circle
    participant, and change seats.

  • Students interact with material (more than just
    writing it down).

Share One, Get One
