Why Reading Strategies Usually Don't Help the Better Readers

Why Reading Strategies Usually Don't Help the Better Readers | Common Core ELA | Literacy & Math | Scoop.it
Yes, we should teach reading comprehension strategies, even to good readers. But we should do so in an environment that emphasizes the value of knowledge and understanding, and that requires students to confront genuine intellectual challenges. Those disciplinary literacy strategies touted in my last entry seem to have motivation built in: trying to connect the graphics and the prose in science to figure out how a process works; or judging the veracity of multiple documents in history; or determining which protagonist an author is most sympathetic to in literature tend to be more purposeful and intellectually engaging than turning headers into questions or summarizing the author’s message.

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's insight:

Thought I'd posted this blog before, but just in case I didn't...Tantillo shares a method to use in understanding the CCSS. I know teachers don't have time to do the work, but if you don't do the close reading, you won't really know what the standards want. The whole idea of the standards is to create readers who can analyze and good analysis has to start with the teacher. Please, please...even if you don't unpack all the standards, work this closely with a few...and choose the meatier ones!!
