Teaching Reading Comprehension and Comprehension Strategies

Teaching Reading Comprehension and Comprehension Strategies | Dyslexia and Early Literacy Success for All Students | Scoop.it
Teacher question: In terms of teaching comprehension to grade 3-5 students, what is the best way to help the readers transfer the strategies they are taught so they can be independent, self-regulated readers? Shanahan's response:  If you want to teach reading comprehension strategies to on-grade level students between the ages of 8-10, we have a pretty good idea of how to do that successfully. The teaching of strategies is a good focus as well, given the large amount of research showing that strategy instruction can be beneficial.

Achievement Gap in Reading Is Present as Early as First Grade and Persists through Adolescence

Achievement Gap in Reading Is Present as Early as First Grade and Persists through Adolescence | Dyslexia and Early Literacy Success for All Students | Scoop.it
The subjects were the 414 participants comprising the Connecticut Longitudinal Study, a sample survey cohort, assessed yearly from 1st to 12th grade on measures of reading and IQ. Statistical analysis employed longitudinal models based on growth curves and multiple groups. Results from the study indicated that as early as first grade, compared with typical readers, dyslexic readers had lower reading scores and verbal IQ, and their trajectories over time never converge with those of typical readers.

Kids Need to Read Within Instruction

Kids Need to Read Within Instruction | Dyslexia and Early Literacy Success for All Students | Scoop.it
If you have ever had surgery, you probably have had the weird experience of signing off on a bunch of medical paperwork. The oddest form is the one that gives the surgeon permission to assault you. Think about it. Usually we don’t want people poking at us with knives. Doctors can’t do that either, unless we give our permission. Otherwise, every tonsillectomy would lead to a 911 call. That means context matters. Stick a knife in someone in an OR and that is cool, do the same thing down at the local tap and you'll do 5-7 in the state penitentiary.

20 Questions/Answers about Dyslexia That Teachers Can Use to Reshape Instruction

20 Questions/Answers about Dyslexia That Teachers Can Use to Reshape Instruction | Dyslexia and Early Literacy Success for All Students | Scoop.it
Dyslexia often is confusing for parents and teachers as the manner in which it presents can differ widely among children and youths. Dyslexia can go undetected for a long time, but it is neurologically based, known to be inherited, and will not be outgrown. Once students fall behind, their problems connected with reading, writing, and spelling can become complicated by negative feelings that affect their self-esteem.

RtI: When Things Don't Work as You Expected

RtI: When Things Don't Work as You Expected | Dyslexia and Early Literacy Success for All Students | Scoop.it
When I arose today I saw lots of tweets and Facebook posts about a new U.S. Department of Education study. Then I started getting emails from folks in the schools and in the state departments of education. “What’s going on here?” was the common trope. Basically, the study looked at RtI programs in Grades 1 through 3. The reports say that RtI interventions were lowering reading achievement in Grade 1 and while the RtI interventions weren’t hurting the older kids, they weren’t helping them to read better.
Frances's insight:

I am a strong believer in early identification of reading problems and "appropriate" early intervention, but I think we need to be  critical uses of concepts like RTI.  What do you think?
