The morphology and vocabulary in this article really explain what processes are needed for readers and how to effectively teach them vocabulary.This article will prove helpful with my tutoring assignment and I love the name vocabulogic.

I am very interested in the topic of disciplinary literacy and I've been looking into it a lot lately. The author has a good point when she discusses the issue that literacy teachers don't have enough content knowledge and content teachers don't have enough literacy knowledge to integrate the two effectively. We need to find a way to bring these two areas of expertise together. Thanks for posting this!

This article reminds me of something another student just posted in one of my other courses; she stated that before the third grade our students are "learning to read" but in third grade and after, our students are "reading to learn". I really latched onto this thought because all the skills we teach our students when we teach them to read are not always helpful when our students are trying to decode a mathematics problem. It is like learning a foreign language and surely they will need new reading tools to help them understand this discipline. I can see disciplinary literacy becoming the next piece of preparing all-around teachers. Sure we should know basic reading strategies for our struggling readers, however adding to our teacher tool belt is Never a bad idea!!! :)

Excellent article and great tips for us to really make a difference with struggling readers.Reader identity is important and in order to help students effectively we need to know how they view themselves and how we can help them on each students' level.

Reading Fluency Matters

Reading Fluency Matters | Teaching Struggling Adolescent Readers | Scoop.it

A useful post by Becky with an overview of fluency foundations. 

 

 

***"Fluency is the bridge between decoding and comprehension and is vital to reach that end. For that bridge to be solid and effective it must have the phonological foundation of automatic decoding. This is the foundation for success.

We talk a lot about reading fluency around our office. It's a term that is easily misunderstood. In my mind, reading fluency is a natural ability to read without the burden of thinking about sounds, rules, and meaning."*** My question then is; why do we time our students when they read to see how good they are doing as a reader?***

I found this to be an interesting research project. I am particularly interested in why the attitudes of the boys increased, while the girls' did not. I recently also read an article on how well we remember what we read when using eReaders. Here it is in case you'd like to check it out: http://healthland.time.com/2012/03/14/do-e-books-impair-memory/

This is an interesting study, as is the article you post, Liz. I'm currently working on an ereader study from a different perspective so it is interesting to read other insights and results. ~LS
Liz Becker's comment, April 22, 2012 3:49 PM
I'm glad you're doing research on eReaders. I always find it interesting to see how they impact the reading process. For myself, I can only read on them for pleasure (at this point). I still want an actual book in my hand for things like my classes. I find that I comprehend and retain academic information better that way.

Reading with Purpose in the Content Areas - ReadWriteThink

Reading with Purpose in the Content Areas - ReadWriteThink | Teaching Struggling Adolescent Readers | Scoop.it
In this strategy guide, you’ll learn how to organize students and instruction to establish a sense of purpose for reading authentic texts in the content areas.

The author makes a key point when she says that strategies alone are not enough to motivate students to read in any of the content areas. Teachers need to pique student interest by helping students to set a purpose for reading and by creating authentic, meaningful activities.

This strategy guide was very helpful and so true that we should provide reading materials beyond the text book that students can learn morr in-depth about the content we teach.

Reading Fluency Activities | Teaching Struggling Adolescent Readers | Scoop.it

Notice the emphasis on decoding in this article. What does this mean for our struggling adolescents? We expect (assume?) that our students will have the decoding skills and strategies they need to comprehend the texts in our classrooms. As we all know, that is often not the case. ~LS

"Reading fluency activities must be done on a daily basis. There are many reading fluency strategies for teaching fluency, and here are some of the best. (Information about helping children with fluency!

based on topics such as characters, places, and objects. For example, you

Amazing how far technology has advanced.This tool could be used for students to make other connections to literature to what they are reading.As Beers remarks in chapter 10 the more students read the better their fluency will improve and the more connections students make to the reading their comprehension will also improve.

This video explains the difference between primary and secondary sources, important terminology in the study of historical texts.  I teach my high school students the difference in order to analyze the texts used in the study of history.

Aggregate, Curate and Create Your Own Textbook | Powerful Learning Practice | Teaching Struggling Adolescent Readers | Scoop.it

Here is a powerful quote to help you understand the process of curation.

 

"CURATION

While aggregation can be seen just as collecting websites, the process of curation involves a deeper analysis of the aggregated sites to select the ones that have the most relevant information for a particular topic, just like a museum curator summarizes and edits intricate subjects into easily consumable and enjoyable exhibits."
