Three Reading Skills Tested (p. 3)
  • 1. Reading on the lines
  • 2. Reading between the lines
  • 3. Reading beyond the lines
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

15
Reading On the Lines
  • Reading on the lines using the information
    that is directly stated in the text. Its right
    there.
  • You just have to
  • find it. 
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

16
Reading Between the Lines
  •  Reading between the lines using the facts and
    details as clues to make reasonable guesses about
    what is not directly stated in the text (making
    inferences)
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

What is most reasonable, most likely , most
probably true?
17
Reading Beyond the Lines
  •  Reading beyond the lines using the literal
    facts and details and your inferences to make
    connections to the world and ideas outside of the
    text (making connections)
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

18
Whats the difference?
  •  Corandic is an emurient grof with many fribs.
    It granks from corite, an org that cairns like
    lange.
  • What is corandic?
  • What does it grank from?
  • What is corite?  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

19
Reading on the Lines questions
  •  Corandic is an emurient grof with many fribs.
    It granks from corite, an org that cairns like
    lange.
  • What is corandic? an emurient grof
  • What does it grank from? corite
  • What is corite? an org that cairns like lange  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

20
  •  Corandic is an emurient grof with many fribs.
    It granks from corite, an org that cairns like
    lange.
  • Discuss with a partner how to classify corandic.
    Is it
  • a) an animal
  • b) a plant
  • c) a mineral or element
  • d) a bacillus or virus
  • Be prepared to give reasons for your choice.
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

21
Reading Between the lines
  •  Corandic is an emurient grof with many fribs.
    It granks from corite, an org that cairns like
    lange.
  • If you and your partner could defend your
    choice with reasons, you were MAKING INFERENCES.
    You were using clues in the text and your
    knowledge of scientific terminology to make a
    best guess about the meaning of the passage.
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

22
Reading Beyond the lines
  •  Corandic is an emurient grof with many fribs.
    It granks from corite, an org that cairns like
    lange.
  • You have just read the whole text passage, and
    you have learned that corandic
  • Is an animal that becomes a mineral when it dies.
  • It lives in the oceans and creates important
    ecosystems in shallow seas.
  • The first three letters of its name is a clue.
  • What is corandic?
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

23
Reading Beyond the lines
  •  Corandic is an emurient grof with many fribs.
    It granks from corite, an org that cairns like
    lange.
  • If there were more corite(s) in the world, would
    it be a better place? Support your opinion with
    reasons and details.
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

24
Reading Beyond the lines
  •  If there were more corite(s) in the world, would
    it be a better place? Support your opinion with
    reasons and details.
  •  
  • To answer this question, you need to make
    connections
  • corite (what it does, the effect it
    has)
  •  
  •   people places systems plants
    animals
  •  
  •  

25
When you make connections, you are going
outside/beyond the lines. You are bringing
yourself and things from outside the text into
your answer.
26
The OSSLT questions are LOADED
  • in a good way. They are LOADED WITH CLUES for
    you about
  • the type of reading skill theyre testing
  • where to find the answer
  • how to give the answer  
  •  

27
Reading On the Lines
  • Reading on the lines right there in the
    textjust find it.
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •   
  •  
  •  

According to the text Who is Where is How
is When is/was What is/was.
If it sounds like there is a definite answer,
its probably on the lines.
28
Reading Between the Lines
  •  Reading between the lines the answer isnt
    right there reread and use clues to come up
    with the best, most reasonable, most probable,
    most likely answer. Be a detective (or a
    scientist).
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

The most likely The best answer Why What
could. Who might
If it sounds like you are being asked to make the
best choice or reasoned guess, it is probably
between the lines.
29
Reading Beyond the Lines
  •  These questions will ask you to connect your own
    knowledge to what is presented in the text.  Be
    an expert.
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

Why do you think What is the purpose of Use
your own ideas to explain Explain whether or
not
If it asks for an opinion, addresses you, and
asks you to explain, you need to go outside the
ideas in the text and think about that topic.
30
Try it!
  •  With your table group, sort the key question
    words under the headings
  • TIP six or seven in each category 
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

Reading on the lines Reading between the lines Reading beyond the lines
31
Another Success Secret use strategies before you
start to read
  • 1. Preview the text passage first by skimming it.
    This will give you an overall impression of what
    it is going to be about.
  • 2. Look carefully at the photograph or diagram.
    That will give you clues to the meaning of the
    text.
  • 3. Next, read the questions. This will give
    you some things to notice or look for when you
    read the text passage.

  • Discuss in your groups
  • 1 a)What type of text is this--informational,
    narrative or graphic text?  (go back to page 2 of
    your handout to help you decide what text form
    this is.)
  • b) What form is it specifically?
  • c) What makes you think that?
  • 2. What features of this text confirm that you
    are correct?
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

33
As a group
  • 1. Skim the passage. Discuss with your group
  • Whats this going to be about? What do
  • We know about this topic already?
  • 2. Look carefully at the photograph What
    information do we get from the photo?
  • 3. Now read questions 1 to 6. Decide as a group
    what type of skill will we need to use in each
    question?
  • reading on the lines? reading between the lines?
  • or reading beyond the lines?
  • Read the selection, and answer the questions as a
    group.
