Transcript of Copy of Figuring out Figure 19
Simplify your LIFE!
What is Figure 19?
Figure 19 is basically a combination of every higher level comprehension skill all rolled into one student expectation.
It covers everything from author's purpose to inferring
to summarizing and making connections.
These skills are hard and tricky so we have to teach the steps for each skill and break them down as much as possible. We have to practice a lot.
Bottom line is we have to teach our kids to
We no longer have the luxury of saying kids 'learn to read in K-2'
and 'read to learn in 3-12'.
We have got to teach them to read to learn from the very beginning.
thinking about your thinking.
Kids need to know how to think.
35 to 55 % of questions on STAAR are technically coded figure 19, however...... 95% of questions on the STAAR actually involve figure 19.
90% of questions on STAAR require real understanding of reading. Knowing how to locate and underline an answer is a skill = NOT real understanding!
Know to Show Key
Students need to be able to pull clues from context clues. Drill and kill vocabulary words will NOT work!
Students need to engage in discussions frequently.
Reading is social, we should not read just to be good at school.
Using Beginning, Middle, and End is not a good way to summarize. Every answer choice has a B.M.E.
Wide variety of reading and effective questioning (DOK) will expand students schema.
Students sharing life experiences helps build background for students who lack life experiences.
…about the story
…about your favorite part
…the part you enjoyed the most
…something that surprised you
…something you wonder about
…what the author is trying to say
…something you would change
…what interested you
…something in the story that reminds you of something else
Reading and writing is an ART!
Thank you for following the

What do you already know about Figure 19?
Teachers will walk away with
knowledge of the skills found in
Teachers will have an opportunity to work on lesson plans with Figure 19 in mind.
In your grade level group,
create a thinking map of your choice
to record your thoughts
Stand up and keep
one hand high in the air until the music stops and you find the closest partner.
When you find a partner, give them a high five and put your hand down.
You will take turns to share any connections, wonderings, or questions about what you just read!
Decide who's Partner A
and who's Parnter B
30 seconds each
Kagan Cooperative Structure
It involves not just the reader, but the text and the context in which reading takes place.
Readers have purposes
for their reading and use a
variety of strategies as they
Readers change the
strategies they use as they
read different kinds of text, or
as they read for different purposes.
Narrative vs. Expository
Entertainment vs. Informationa
FIGURE 19 D
What stood out?
10 Major Types
(Copy in your packet)
1. Let's look at #1 together
2. Work alone on #2-10
3. Compare your answers
with a table partner
These SE's are tested most....
they are the hardest to teach!
What do I NOW know
about Figure 19?
Use the same map you created earlier. Use a different color marker.
Read Aloud Tips
Read aloud every day for 10-15 minutes. Do not show students the pictures.
Do not interrupt with questions. Doing so will not allow the brain to work as it is supposed to.
Utilize Kagan structures to allow students opportuity to synthesize and then come back together for reflection.
1. Teacher poses the questions.
2. Think time.
3. Your team takes turns verbally giving responses.
Your Question is....
What do you think is required
of students in order to be able to infer, summarize, and make connections?
