Figuring out Figure 19
Transcript 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 think.
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.
Metacognition. It means 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.
Knowing how to locate and underline an answer is a skill. 90% of questions on STAAR require real understanding of reading.
Know to Show Key
Read aloud everyday for 10 minutes. Students don't see the words. You want this to mirror a movie experience. If you interrupt with questions, you don't allow the brain to work as it's supposed to.
Think, Pair, Share right after read aloud and come back together for reflection.
Read Aloud Tips
Drill and kill vocabulary words will not work. Students need to be able to pull clues from context clues.
Discourse, 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 will expand students schema.
Students sharing life experiences helps build background for students who lack life experiences.
