Shanahan on Literacy: Prereading and ELLs: Let's Take off the Training Wheels

Shanahan on Literacy: Prereading and ELLs: Let's Take off the Training Wheels | Web 2.0 Tools with Literacy | Scoop.it

Helpful post here not only for frontloading information for ELLs prior to reading complex texts, but also why multiple reads are important for all students. 

 

In the past, we tended to read a text once in classrooms, so the reading had to be maximally productive. We had to make sure the kids got the information. It wouldn’t be fair otherwise. The premium was on the information and teachers were just making sure that students at least heard the information.

 

In contrast, the idea being stressed these days is that students SHOULD read the text more than once. What you don’t get the first time, you might get the second. Instead of front-loading the first reading, you could try front-loading the second or third—after the kids had a chance to pedal the bike themselves. If they ask a question about what they don’t understand, by all means answer. But don’t always assume that they won’t get it… give them a chance to fall… who knows they might just surprise you.
