6 Reading Comprehension Problems and What to do About Them | Leader of Pedagogy | Scoop.it

"High school history has a tremendous obstacle to learning — getting students enthusiastic about reading difficult texts. When I teach World History to my 9th graders, I have come up with a list of 6 common challenges I face when trying teach reading comprehension. Here’s a glimpse into how I meet these 6 challenges and help my students win!"

Reading comprehension is so important. There are so many children who can decode brilliantly but have difficulty with comprehending...an essential part of reading. Good tips.

The three aspects that are discussed in this post are:

* Appropriate

* Purposeful

* Promotes understanding

The discussion on 'Appropriate' includes a variety of suggestions that help demonstrate how rigor is embedded in the assessment. In some cases the assessment is also related to each level of Bloom's Taxonomy.

What does 'Purposeful' mean? Reflect on the standards you are teaching. What type of thinking are you asking your students to do? What is the final product that will demonstrate their understanding?

'Promotes understanding' ties into all the areas but also consider how to make this an authentic learning experience as you design a rigorous assessment. Several examples are included.

We've been talking a lot lately about "authentic" assessment.


Here are the three statements discussed in this post. 

1. The Assessment Is Appropriate

2. The Assignment Is Purposeful

3. The Assessment Promotes Understanding

Daniel Rimmereid's curator insight, March 25, 2014 8:35 PM

This is a great resource that really describes clearly and concisely what makes a great assessment but it took it one step further by talking about rigor. The first point is that good assessments need to be appropriate. This talks about how the assessment needs to be about what students learned but more importantly it needs to talk about and address what the students learned in a challenging way. If the assessment is too easy then students will not be truly assessed on the material and thus the assessment will be weak. The second point is that assessment needs to be purposeful. It is good for your students to finish an assessment and for them to clearly see what they have produced from that assessment. The third point is that the assessment should allow students to come away with some deeper form of understanding on the topic. I think something that I have taken away from this article is that assessment can be a great tool for deepening students understanding and really giving them something to be able to look back and know that they have accomplished something.

Teacher feedback must be informative and encouraging for students to fully understand whether they're learning and what they can do to improve the learning process.

Ness Crouch's insight:

Feedback is so important when working with learners. It takes the mystery out of what is expected of them.
