Learning to Read for Understanding
Strategy #1: Think Aloud (Metacognitive Bookmarks)
What is Reading Apprenticeship?: 9/10
As you view the videos, pay attention to the vocabulary and use of language by the speakers, and consider the impact that reading can have on each.
With a neighbor, make a list of all of the things people do that requires them to be good readers. Be ready to share!
1.) To Function: Reading directions on prescription bottle, how-to manuals, and restaurant menus to name a few
5) Securing a well-paying job: memos, reports and other documents need to be read and comprehended quickly for efficiency (e.g. Those who earn a bachelor's make nearly $1 million more over the course of their lifetime than those who do not)
3.) Develops the Mind: The brain is a muscle and needs to be worked in order to respond and "grow".
4.) Discovery of New Things: Books and other sources of literature can introduce you to new and exciting places, creatures, and other such things.
2.) To Communicate Effectively: Those who read tend to have a more varied range of words to express how they feel and to get their point across
Learning to make meaning of the things we read by becoming mentally active and engaged throughout the reading process.
Good readers employ reading strategies at all phases of the reading process, including before reading, during reading, and after reading.
Reading Apprenticeship instructional routines and strategies are based on a framework of four interacting dimensions that support reading development:
Metacognitive Conversation: When people discuss their thinking, usually when reading, and compare their thoughts and processes to others.
Everyday Examples of Metacognition:
- awareness that you have difficulty remembering people's names in social situations
- reminding yourself that you should try to remember the name of a person you just met
- realizing that you know an answer to a question but simply can't recall it at the moment
- realizing that you should review an article you read last week because you have forgotten many of the key points
- realizing that there is something wrong with your solution to a problem
The sharing of thoughts as you read with a partner. What predictions are you making? What images come into your head? How do you make sense of difficult passages? What questions remain unanswered? What comparisons do you make?
Activity: Pipe Cleaner Creature
1.) Student will create a creature out of pipe cleaners and talk about what they are thinking as they create. Partners will take notes on the creator's thinking aloud.
2.) Trade roles
Purpose: To examine our thought processes and determine if our thinking is easy to access
Practice with Text- "Six Squirrels Get Separated"
1.) Quietly read the article and take notes on "mental moves" you make to stay involved in the text (e.g. visualizing)
2.) With a partner, take turns reading and thinking out loud (alternate paragraphs)
3.) Link up with another pair and share strategies used while reading the article
Writing About Language
Now that you have watched the videos, explain in your own words the importance of a vast vocabulary, the outcome of possessing/not possessing a mastery over language, and the role that reading plays in acquiring such verbal and written skills.
