Why is comprehension important? What instructions help students develop comprehension? How can we adopt instruction for students with special needs? How can we monitor students’ progress in comprehension? WHAT IS READING COMPREHENSION Comprehension is critically important to the development of children’s reading skills…it’s the essence of reading. It is a complex cognitive process that requires an intentional and thoughtful interaction between the reader and text. Development and application of comprehension strategies is intimately linked to student success. Lastly, comprehension is not a product of reading, but as a result of the active engagement between the reader and the text, and not the activity or the context. WHAT COMPREHENSION STRATEGIES DID THE NRP IDENTIFY AS MOST PROMISING AND EFFECTIVE? The NRP (2000) identified the following comprehension strategies as most promising and effective for helping students improve their comprehension: Comprehension Monitoring Cooperative Learning Graphic and Semantic Organizers Story (or Text) Structure and Mapping Questioning (Answering & Generating) Summarization Multiple Strategy Approach KEY COMPREHENSION STRATEGIES PRESSLEY 2000; RAND STUDY GROUP, 2002 Identifying important information Inferring/predicting Monitoring/clarifying Generating and answering questions Visualizing Summarizing Synthesizing Evaluating MAKING MEANING STRATEGIES THE 9 MAKING MEANING STRATEGIES 1. Retelling Less K 2. Using schema/making connections / Demand 1 3. Visualizing Cognitive Demand 4. Wondering/Questioning 5. Making Inferences 6. Determining important ideas 7. Understanding text structure 8. Summarizing 4 9. Synthesizing / More 5 Demand STRATEGIES FOR STUDENTS Think Pair Share Visualizing during read aloud How did you picture the part where it said, “The students were squished on the bus.”? Who did you picture on slide? How is that person coming down the slide? Students connect discussion comments to those made by another reader: I agree with _______ because _________________. I disagree with ________ because _______________. In addition to what ________ said, I’d like to add __________________. When talking with a partner, help them share more: Tell me more of your thinking about ________. Let’s talk a little more about ______________. Another way to think about it might be ____________. STRATEGIES FOR TEACHERS Use sticky notes to mark the places vocabulary words appear. You might write the meaning of the word on the note to help you define it smoothly without interrupting the reading. Use sticky notes to mark stopping places in the book, remind you of questions, or other important information you want to convey. For each skill, teach explicitly, model, and practice. Discuss the story and make personal connections by asking students: What did you hear the second time reading the story that you missed the first time? What does this story tell us about ________ (theme)? What in the story makes you think that? STRATEGIES FOR TEACHERS Use Class Meeting format to discuss stories Class meeting rules One person talks at a time Listen to one another Allow people to disagree Talk respectfully to one another JR. GREAT BOOKS STRATEGIES SHARED INQUIRY DISCUSSION By using Shared Inquiry Discussion “students are encourage to think critically and deeply about the meaning of what they read, and to use evidence from the story to support their ideas”. A TYPICAL WEEK Day 1- First Read and initial questions are formed Day 2- Second reading of text with directed notes Day 3- Discuss questions that were posed on first day Day 4- Teacher chooses one inquiry question and students write down their answer Day 5- Shared Inquiry Discussion followed by an opportunity for students to change their thinking TEACHER RESPONSIBILITIES DURING A SHARED INQUIRY DISCUSSION Choose the Focus Question Plan ahead passages that relate to the Focus Question Only ask questions during the discussion Use a seating chart to keep track of student ideas Move the discussion along by asking clarifying questions SAMPLE SEATING CHART Diojane Miguel Diandre Believes x x the x Maria character was x wrong Alex Gary Agrees Felicia with x Diojane Jessica Wonders Felix why the main character left at the end. Agrees Gustov with America America Alejandro Leslie STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES DURING A SHARED INQUIRY DISCUSSION Read and understand the story Come prepared to discuss your answer to the focus questions Be an attentive listener Ask questions of others Be open to new ideas Use the text to support your thinking ELI STRATEGIES COOPERATIVE LEARNING WITH RECIPROCAL TEACHING Groups predict what they story will be about using picture clues or story title. Groups generate questions Who will the story focus on? Where will it take place? What problems might occur? Groups summarize the main parts of the story Groups determine if there predictions were correct and clarify answers to the questions they generated. GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS: THINK LINKS 1. The students read a selection 2. The teacher asks the student to identify the main topic of the text and list words that describe the topic. 3. The teacher asks students to give some examples or more information from the text for each one of the descriptive words that they listed. 4. The students organize and link the information using a web. THINK LINKS Words to Details describe topic Words to Details describe topic Main Idea Words to details describe topic Words to Details describe topic QAR: QUESTION ANSWER RELATIONSHIPS Asking Questions: Gives a purpose for reading Focuses attention on what must be learned Helps develop active thinking while reading Helps monitor comprehension Helps review content Relates what is learned to what is already known (connections!) Requires students to make inferences (Armbruster, Lear, & Osborn, 2001) QAR: QUESTIONS Right There: You can put your finger on it. (What was the score at the end of the game?) Think and Search: You can put your finger on 2 or more answers from 2 or more paragraphs. (What are some of the things T.J. did?) Author and you: Information from the story and you. You must think about what you already know, what the author is telling you, and how both fit together. (What are some other ways Jake could have solved the problem?).

Individual responses “We can’t narrow the gap unless we dramatically increase student response to instruction.” Dr. Kevin Feldman – Director of Reading and Early Intervention with Sonoma County Office of Education, CA – February, 2009 IVF From Step Up to Writing – Summary Paragraphs – “A summary is a shortened, condensed version of an item such as an article, story, film, or chapter in a textbook. The purpose of a summary is to share the key ideas from the item with your reader. Summaries keep the same tone as the original piece and usually do not contain opinion. Summaries do not have a formal conclusion.” sec. 3-3 IVF summary includes the following: Create a topic sentence using the “burrito” topic sentence method.

MATTHEW EFFECTS (THE GAP) Because poor readers tend to read considerably less than better readers, the gap between the good and poor readers in number of words read, and both receptive and expressive vocabulary, becomes progressively greater as the child advances through school. “The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.” Cunningham, A. & Stanovich, K.

Arreaga-Mayer & Perdomo-Rivera, 1996 WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF VOCABULARY INSTRUCTION? Leads to gains in comprehension Increases effective communication Has long term impact on powers of communication and concept development WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR MY TEACHING? Direct Instruction Repetition and multiple exposure Words useful in many contexts Active engagement Multiple instructional methods Definition based methods are ineffective (Stahl & Fairbanks, 1986) SAMPLES OF DICTIONARY-BASED VOCABULARY LESSONS (10TH GRADE) Word: Definition Student Sentence revise: to change, fix, I need to revise my improve motorcycle. redundant: repeated, Mr. Donaldson is a boring, over and over very redundant again science teacher. embolden: to I am going to empower, to make embolden my body strong, gain strength this summer. celestial: heavenly My dad should put seasons celestial in his pasta.

They conclude ten times, unless exposure to that some learning from meaning occurred prior to context does occur, but passage reading, in which case two exposures were sufficient to that the effect is not produce positive effects. very powerful. “Because of the developmental nature of reading, the later one waits to strengthen weaknesses, the more difficult it is for the children to cope with the increasing literacy demands in the later grades. Moreover, those who have reading difficulties in the intermediate grades will, most likely, have serious trouble with the study of science, social studies, literature, mathematics, and other content study that depend, in great part, on printed text.” -Chall, Jeanne S. & Jacobs, Vicki A. (Sring 2003) Poor Children’s Fourth-Grade Slump. American Educator CRITICAL FEATURES OF EFFECTIVE VOCABULARY INSTRUCTION Integrate vocabulary with the lesson. Use explicit instruction on a limited number of new vocabulary words. Create environments where words are talked about and used in multiple ways. Use new vocabulary in other content areas. Teach independent word learning strategies. MORE CRITICAL FEATURES OF EFFECTIVE VOCABULARY INSTRUCTION Encourage wide reading. Provide multiple exposure to words (at least 10). Combine definition and context approaches. Make connections with background knowledge and new vocabulary. Present words in semantically related groups. Instruction on word parts, word association and connotative meaning is important.

The steps will be followed when introducing new vocabulary for each story. Steps 1-5 will be followed for each new vocabulary word. The process should be done at a “perky pace” and should take no more than 20 minutes to complete. Repetition is very important. Plan on using only 1 Graphic Organizer per story. IDENTIFY VOCABULARY WORDS: Review the suggested words for vocabulary instruction to determine if you need to supplement with additional words. Your children may be very familiar with a word, and you do not need to provide instruction. Your students may be unfamiliar with a word not selected by the publisher and you need to provide more instruction on this word. CHOOSING THE WORDS Review the suggested words and activities for vocabulary instruction to determine if you need to supplement with additional words or activities. For example, Reading Street does a nice job in 2nd grade of including strong vocabulary activities. The other grades may need to supplement. Place identified words into the 3 Tiers. Tier II words will then be placed in the lesson planner. Follow the protocol/chart with the words you have selected. HERE IS AN EXAMPLE OF A TEACHER WHO CHOSE THE VOCABULARY WORDS: Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3 caterpillar cocoon unscrewed disrespect emerge migrant sketched PART 1: TEACHING THE VOCABULARY: WHAT TO DO FOR EACH WORD DAY 1 AND 2 1. Introduce the word. Our first word is (vocabulary word). What word? 2. Present a brief student friendly explanation. A ___________ is a _______; or To _____________ means to ____________. 3. Connect with examples (concrete: something students can touch; visual: a visual representation; verbal: tell them) 4. Illustrate the word with an action to represent the vocabulary word (not all words lend themselves to action). 5. Check for understanding. This should be done using think-pair-share, cooperative groups, or individual responses such as “thumbs up or thumbs down” to get students actively engaged. HERE IS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW A TEACHER PLANS TO TEACH THE VOCABULARY: Word #1: cocoon Definition: silk-like protective covering Connection: Here is where the teacher would follow the script: Our word is cocoon? What word? A cocoon is a silk like protective covering. Here is a picture of a cocoon. Word #2: caterpillar Definition: a small, furry worm with many legs Connection: Again, the teacher would follow the script: Our word is caterpillar? What word? A caterpillar is a small, furry worm with many legs. Here is a picture of a caterpillar. HERE IS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW A TEACHER PLANS TO TEACH THE VOCABULARY: Check for Understanding: Cocoon: Have students describe a cocoon that they have seen to the class. Caterpillar: Show pictures of different animals. Have students identify the caterpillar. HERE’S HOW ANOTHER TEACHER INTRODUCES WORDS Brie Ellis at Sherman Elementary VOCABULARY Home on the Range dude city person who works on a ranch for vacation DUDE spurs spiked wheels on boots used on horses SPURS roundup moving cattle in a herd; usually done on horseback ROUND UP bawling crying BAWL ING coyote small wolf-like animal; known for howling COY O TE PART 2: APPLY THE LEARNING: A MENU Day 3 and 4 Now that students have a basic understanding of the vocabulary words and definitions, additional practice and application should be added. Choose an activity you believe is most beneficial for your students at this time. With a partner, write a meaningful sentence for each of the tested words Teacher Guide Vocabulary Activities (see your Reading Street teacher’s guide) Graphic Organizer (choose 1) Illustrate and associate with one or two of the vocabulary words. Venn diagram Word, Definition, Picture Word, Picture, Sentence Word Parts Map Clunk bug Other graphic organizers you love PART 2: APPLY THE LEARNING: A MENU ELL Poster (See Reading Street ELL guide) Have students present examples and non-examples for the vocabulary word Ask deep processing questions (Developed by Sherrie Krause, Literacy Coach): Answer questions “Would you prefer to have a festive day or an ordinary day?” Create Examples What is something that a good citizen might do? Make Choices If any of the things I name can hatch, say hatch; if not, say nothing: a train, a chicken, a jar of jam, a snake, a tadpole, a horse. Pantomime Show me how an eagle soars, a rocket, an airplane. Personal Context Some people are fond of fishing. Tell about something you are fond of. Use the word fond when you tell about it. Synonyms and Antonyms Name a word that means the opposite of genuine; name a word that means about the same as genuine. HERE’S HOW ONE TEACHER PLANNED FOR APPLICATION AND PRACTICE: Day 1. Illustrate and associate with two of the vocabulary words. 3 2. Use a Venn diagram to compare a caterpillar and a butterfly- can be done in groups or whole class 3. Develop Vocabulary lesson on Page 153 in teacher’s guide Day 1. Word Parts Map using unscrewed and disrespect (example of Word Parts Map below; can also be found 4 in ELI binder) 2. Develop Vocabulary lesson on Page 157 in teacher’s guide 3. In small groups make a list of additional words that start with the “un” or “dis” prefix and talk about how the prefix changes the word meaning. DAY 5: EXTEND AND REVIEW THE LEARNING: A MENU Day 5 After students have learned, practiced, and applied the vocabulary words, they can extend the learning. This is also an opportunity to connect this week’s vocabulary to previous week’s vocabulary. Choose an activity you believe is most beneficial for your students at this time. Memory or Matching or “find your partner”, “dance to a partner” : vocab. word on one card, match with definition on another card Meaningful sentences: use student-generated meaningful sentences from earlier. Take out the vocabulary word and students select the vocabulary word that matches with that sentence. Word Wizards; students bring in or say examples that they’ve found or used the vocabulary word DAY 5: EXTEND AND REVIEW THE LEARNING: A MENU How can these be alike: teacher picks 2 words and students must say how they’re alike. Words can be from different weeks. For example: how are rural and glacier alike? 20 questions: student picks a vocabulary word. Students ask yes or no questions and student answers while class tries to guess what the vocabulary word is. Vo-back-ulary: Students have a vocabulary word taped to their back. Kids walk around and use these to guess the word: Name synonyms and antonyms Give definitions Give meaningful sentences YOUR TURN Use the lesson planning template and graphic organizers to plan next week’s vocabulary lessons for your reading or intervention group. EXIT SLIP Please reflect on tonight’s learning targets as you answer the questions on the exit slip. I can explain why comprehension instruction is important. I can name specific comprehension strategies. I can create QAR questions. I can explain why vocabulary instruction is important. I can choose specific vocabulary strategies. I can plan a week’s worth of vocabulary lessons using the strategies from tonight’s work.
