I agree with this section completely! I wish more focus was put on the poor readers in the school system instead of the good readers.
This reminds me of riding a bike. Seems so easy once you know, but hard when you are learning to break down the pieces and then put them all together!
You could make analogies with lots of routine activities that are really quite complex-driving, golfing, etc.
Things are not always as easy as they seem.
This takes commitment and work
To have a purpose and reasoning of the subject matter makes sense.
Reading difficult material out loud can be helpful.
Leaving these comments illustrates the good reader's ability to summarize what she has read.
I had no idea we were doing all this.
I agree..I had no idea we were doing all this.
I consider myself a good reader, yet had no idea of the sequence of my thinking while reading.
I found the video: "Steps to Creating a Language Experience Story" very helpful. It provided a step by step demonstration on how to utilize a student's knowledge a topic, what more they would like to know about that topic, and what they learned about the topic in the process. They then convert their personal experience into a story that they learn to read themselves.
Makes sense! The titles of a passage really matter!
This was perfect information and one that really demonstrates the point.
I take these techniques for granted without realizing that I use them.
These two charts, poor readers v. good readers, illustrates the expansive gap in an individual's abilities. The attributes listed for good readers lend to the readiness for higher order thinking.
Good to know
When good readers lose their concentration, they stop and make adjustments. Poor readers don't know what they don't know!
Seems like poor readers should be working on short passages that stretch their abilities a little at a time so that they can develop overall retention and comprehension.
Understanding the reason why some people seem to do better than others will help in teaching on a one on one bases.
