Transcript: Critcal Response Presentation "Best practices in Fluency Instruction" (Best Practices in Literacy Instruction , Ch 12 pp.268-287) Sharmaine Joseph EDCI626 1. Model for the students 2. Support students as they read aloud 3. Help students focus on reading with meaning 4. Provide multiple reading opportunities 15-20 minutes of Echo or Choral reading of one book three times a week Wide FOOR: children read three different text Out performed their peers (had a greater growth on comprehension) Discussion occurred naturally as part of lesson Four Corners Prosody Readers are able to understand expressive reading (intonation, stress, temp, and appropriate phrasing) Benefit Have a richer comprehension of what is written Oral reading develops fluent speech Reader's theater where the student is performing the text student chooses a text that is meant to be performed rehearsal of the text shows prosodic interpretation of the text Purpose is to model fluent reading, supportive reading, and repetition of reading Improvement in reading fluency and overall reading achievement References Used for small group or tutoring one or two struggling readers Lesson plan that involves a single challenging text First day: Introduce the text Second day: Do echo reading and comprehension questions Third day: Shortest lesson( choral reading with the students) Fourth day: Partner reads alternating pages of text Fifth day: Post-reading; extension activity Conclusion Kuhn, M.R., Rasinski, T., (2010). Current Issues in Best Practices in Literacy Instruction. In L. B. Gambrell & L. M. Morrow (Eds.), Best practices in Fluency Instruction (pp. 268-287). New York: Guilford Press. Fluency-Orientated Oral Reading/Wide Fluency-Orientated Oral Reading Fast Start Designed for home involvement Students work with a skilled reader Skilled reader, reads two to three times out loud pointing to words Read the passage together two to three times Child reads passage to skilled reader Word activity using one or more words Profound influence for at-risk students Read a short text to students Discussion about the text Students read chorally as group Paired Reading (read 2-3 times as partner follows along) Perform text for class Choose words to analyze Option: Take text home for more practice Rehearsal and Performance Basic of Fluency Instruction Wide Fluency-Orientated Reading Instruction Automaticity Fluency Orientated Reading Instruction The authors believe that these approaches presented here are the best ways to introduce fluency instruction in the classroom Develop automatic recognition and expression while reading orally Students can read challenging text in the future Fluency Development Lesson Students are reading three different text First day: Introduce the text Second day: Do echo reading and comprehension questions Third day: Shortest lesson (choral reading with the students) Fourth and Fifth day: Students read the two remaining text Discussion Questions? Readers can accurately and effortlessly identify text (without spending time on what deciding what the word is in text) Benefit Developing their decoding skills in order to have word recognition Apart of sight word vocabulary Limitation Little attention for comprehension The concept of "fluency" has changed from developing growth in reading skills to a system where the only concern is the reading rate of the student. What is your take on fluency instruction? Is it something that you would implement in your classroom? Is there anything that you would change in order to enhance this strategy? As a teacher how would you feel, if a principal asked you to incorporate speeder (an online program that slowly helps students read faster through timed reading activities) in the classroom? Fast start is a family based fluency instructional strategy. However,what are some alternative forms of fluency instruction that a child can receive if they do not have that type of home life? What are some limitations to using the rehearsal and performance fluency instruction strategy in a classroom?

Transcript: It was effective, interesting, and refreshing The students had the opportunity to exercise their critical thinking skills The teacher moved students who were misbehaving to different seats The students learned strategies important for solving math problems independently I think that visual aids are important because they can make math real to students and help them understand conceptual relationships I also think it is important to teach kids how to reason through a problem when the teacher is not present The teacher helped the kids achieve a deeper understanding of the material Intervening Effectively Visualizing Math Students were able to pay attention and engage with the lesson I had the opportunity to observe in a 3rd grade classroom Subject: Math Throughout the lesson, the teacher incorporated the use of visual aids, such as encouraging the kids to draw visual representations of word problems and demonstrating multiplication with Kleenex boxes The teacher expressed a willingness to call the mother of a student who was disrupting the class by talking She was patient and let them reason through the problem step-by-step without just giving them the answer Expanded my view of how math can be taught Guided Discovery Example of strong student engagement with a lesson The teacher called on students who were inattentive or whispering to reincorporate them into the lesson Best Practice Presentation Classroom was an effective learning environment It seemed like a really unorthodox way of teaching math, so I was surprised at how well the students responded to this technique Background Information Student Success Activity: Reviewing the answers to a quiz the kids had already taken Why this lesson? Teacher would present a problem from the quiz then asks the students how to solve it After they got the answer she would have them explain why it was correct
