For Literacy Coaches across Edgewood...My class is being used as a Lab Classroom using the Comprehension Toolkit...My students love the post-its of course but I am having trouble getting them to jot down meaningful thoughts and questions except for those 5 students that always seem to blow you away...What is happening in your classrooms that is working or are you having the same problems?
S-Study text features, C-Circle underlined words and text features, O-Ok to read the questions before reading the passage, R-Read the Passage, E-Evidence-where did you find your answer
I have used this Reading Strategy in my classroom for the two years I have been a 3rd grade teacher. I feel as though it gives those students who need it a guide on how to go through a passage successfully. Have you used it? If so, has it helped? If not, do you have another way to go about it?
I have discovered recently how difficult it is for some students to make a reasonable inference. After lots of practice and activities there are still students making inferences that have NO connection to the stories. Could it be lack of schema(background knowledge)?
