What Do You Think?

  • If you think it true go
  • If You think its false go

When using reading comprehension exercises,
its better to start with general understanding
and then move toward detailed understanding.
  • Simplifying a text often helps students
    understand it.

  • Reading is an active, not a passive, skill.

  • Its better to use exercises that have a simple
    direct answer.

  • Skim
  • Scan
  • Inference
  • Straightforward

What inference can you make?
  • John was running to catch the bus again. It was a
    morning routine a routine that didnt bother
    John, but drove his mother crazy.

Has Your Opinion Changed? Why or Why Not?
  • When using reading comprehension exercises, its
    better to start with general understanding and
    then move toward detailed understanding.
  • Reading is an active skill, not a passive, skill.
  • Simplifying a text often helps students
    understand it.
  • Its better to use exercises that have a simple
    direct answer.

Processing Questions
  • When did I give the tasks, before or after the
    reading? Why?
  • If you want to use authentic texts, should you
    simplify them? Why or why not?
  • If you dont simplify an authentic text, then
    what can you do to help your Ss understand the
    text? What can you simplify and how will it help

Listen to this story
Quit? Ive known since I was twelve that smokin
would be the death of me, so if it hasnt killed
me yet, then why should I stop?
Havent you quit smoking?
Processing Questions
  • Is teacher translation of the text an effective
    and efficient way to have Ss demonstrate their
    understanding? Why or why not?
  • How does this quote relate to the above question
    Give a man a fish feed him for a day. Teach a
    man to fish and feed him for a lifetime.

Receptive Skills are Active not Passive
Model of the ESL Reader (Coady 1979)
Conceptual Abilities
Background Knowledge
Process Strategies
Background Knowledge
  • Choosing a text that Ss already knows something
    about helps Ss learn English faster
  • Helps learners understand new and unfamiliar
  • Allows Ss to comprehend more of the text at a
    faster rate

In Receptive Skill Lessons Which Is More
  • Vocabulary is more important than grammar in
    receptive skill lessons
  • Grammar helps us use language, vocabulary helps
    us understand language

Task Sequencing in Receptive Skill Lessons
  • General ? Specific
  • Easy ? Difficult
  • Concrete ? Abstract

Introduction to Blooms Taxonomy
  • Sequencing of tasks and questions in reading
    activities is not a new idea
  • Bloom introduced his taxonomy of reading
    questions in 1956
  • Bloom, like Grellet, believes that tasks should
    move from easier to more difficult, and from
    concrete to more abstract forms of thinking

Blooms Taxonomy
  • Knowledge
  • Comprehension
  • Application
  • Analysis
  • Synthesis
  • Evaluation
