Strategies, Practice, and Differentiated Instruction in Reading Comprehension

Strategies, Practice, and Differentiated Instruction in Reading Comprehension | AdLit | Scoop.it

Dr Marta Leon explains the strategies, practice, and differentiated instruction in reading comprehension.

 

Learning to comprehend text is perhaps the most essential skill that students learn in school. Reading with understanding is a key skill they will use for the remainder of their lives – whether they read for pleasure, for work, or to engage in civic life. Unfortunately, far too many students struggle to read and comprehend, and educators struggle with how to best help these students.

The market has become flooded with learning programs that purport to help educators teach their students to comprehend text. There are, however, significant differences in how these programs approach the task of teaching reading comprehension

Given that many definitions of giftedness suggest that 10% of the population is gifted , there is clearly an abundance of “others who may not understand” and circumstances and experiences where misunderstanding can and does occur.

Decline in children's non-fiction must stop, say authors - The Guardian

Decline in children's non-fiction must stop, say authors - The Guardian | AdLit | Scoop.it

"A group of authors has sounded a warning over the decline of non-fiction for children, calling on publishers and libraries to reverse the slide or risk depriving children – particularly boys – of vital reading material...

They point to the All Party Literacy Group's 2012 report, Boys' Reading Commission (pdf), in which Phil Jarrett, national adviser for Ofsted, says that boys "tend to read … non-fiction, autobiographies, newspapers and so on", and that boys in particular are "turned off" by a lack of texts that interest them."

YA Fiction: Too Many Girls?

"It’s common to hear that the reason boys don’t read is because they don’t want to read “girl books”, and that there is a tilt in publishing, writing, and marketing toward books for girls and by women. In fact, there is a book published by the American Library Association called Connecting Boys with Books (a second edition was published in 2009) which makes the argument that boys are drawn to “boys’ books” and specific genres, and that libraries need to make special efforts to meet those needs in order to close the literacy gap. Ana at Lady Business has written a very interesting (and very long) post called Gender Balance in YA Fiction. What’s great about this is that, while it isn’t comprehensive, it’s grounded in solid data, and provides a list of further reading at the end."

Review: Developing Writers: Teaching and Learning in the Digital Age

"What does it mean to learn and develop as a writer? What is a multimodal text? How is writing different in the age of the internet and mobile phone, particularly in relation to teaching, assessing and researching writing?
Drawing on UK and US research and case studies, Richard Andrews and Anna Smith set out to explore these questions and to develop a new model of writing development that is relevant for the digital age. This is a bold enterprise indeed and, although some chapters present complex arguments in their overview of existing research and theories (for example, those exploring distinctions between product-related and process-related models), the authors are largely successful in this aim....
And as befits a book about writing in the digital age we are invited to continue the conversation at www.developingwriters.org. I have a feeling this book will become a key text for those wishing to reflect on their practice as teachers of writing or as teachers as writers."
