Transcript of RAP Reading and Paraphrasing Strategy

RAP Reading & Paraphrasing Strategy
By Richie Henderson, Josh Danishefsky, &
Chris Neary

Current Strategy Use
- Not all students are able to read fluently with the material in a classroom environment.
RAP Strategy
- "Paraphrasing requires students to read text, ask questions about it to determine the main idea and other relevant information, and paraphrase the answers to these questions." (Salend, p. 303)
What does RAP stand for?
- R stands for "Reading the paragraph." (READ)
Modeled Practice
- First we will begin by breaking down the steps for you and showing you how we would do it.
Guided Practice
Independent Practice
- On your own or with a partner, read the passage handed out and use the steps to read, ask yourself the main idea, and paraphrase in your own words.
- This strategy can help improve reading comprehension in the classroom.
- A stands for "Asking yourself what was the main idea and the important supporting details."(ASK)
- P stands for "Putting the main idea and details in your own words." (Paraphrase)
- Students with certain learning disabilities may also have deficiencies with reading comprehension.
- All together, we will work as one to read the paragraph, ask ourselves the main idea and details, and then paraphrase in our own words.
- Together as a class, we will look at another article and use the three steps to better understand the reading.
