Thinking Reading – 20 Minutes The Bully – Chapter 1 Learn the “C” Step 25 Minutes Now that you have a general idea of the Prediction Strategy, let’s begin learning it. Today we will start with the first step. C heck for clues I’ll describe the step and explain what everything means, and then I’ll demonstrate it. Once you have heard a bout the step and seen it in action, we will practice it together, with partners, and individually until you can use it with ease. Do you have any questions? Learn the “C”1. Step Fill in the outline as we discuss it. heck for clues Titles 2. There are 4 steps in the Prediction Strategy. The first step is the “C” Step – Check for Clues. Write that by the “C” now. 3. During the “C” Step, you act like a detective and check several places for clues about the reading selection. You do this before you read and while you read. 4. Before you actually begin to read, the place you should check for clues is in the Title. Please write the word Title on the first line under Check for Clues. 5. What can a title of a story or article tell you about a reading selection? Topic - A Brother in Arms –brothers who are some ways fighting each other. Always ask yourself what the title suggests. Then you should ask yourself what do I already know about the topic? Use the “C” Step on these Titles Dark Lord, The Early Years Sarlett Dedd Author: Cathy Brett What does the title suggest? What do you already know about the topic? lues Titles Authors The second place you check for clues is in the Author’s name. Write Author on the second line under Check for Clues How can the Author’s name give you clues about what you are reading? Many authors always write about the same things or use the same style of writing. Stephen King is known for his horror stories. What do the Authors Make You Think Of? Suzanne Collins Rick Riordan Stephenie Meyer Jeff Kinney Pictures or Visual Clues lues Titles Authors Pictures or Visual CLues Reading Clues Warm-up:11/28/12 “Walking home, Darrell felt a little better about California. Amberlynn was really nice. Maybe there were other kids at Bluford like her. Maybe it would be okay after all. Tyray and his friends might not be in any of his classes. They might even forget all about him. Darrell hoped there would be someone like Malik in Bluford. 1. What is the main idea of this passage? Include details from the passage that support the main idea. “Look at the top of the score sheet. Here you will fill in the reader’s name, the coach’s name, the number of the passage being read, and the date.” “The reader is the person who will be using the step. For example, when I show you how to use the “C” Step in a few minutes the reader will be me. The coach is the person who is watching the reader use the step. Thus, when you watch someone use a step, YOU will be the coach.” “Your job as coach is to record whether the reader actually demonstrtates each element of the step. Those elements are written in the middles of the score sheet under the phrase Did the reader. For example, with the “Check for Clues’ Step, if I demonstrated or mention one of the things listed under Did the reader, you place an X next to that item.” “Once the reader is done with this step, the coach will add up the X’s and put the total number in the section called the ‘Total points earned.’ Then, the coach will check the percentage chart on the page to determine the percentage correct and give the score sheet to the reader.” “Based upon the results of the score sheet, the reader will write a goal for improving his or her use of this step at the bottom of the sheet. For example, if I didn’t check for a particular type of clue, I’d write a goal about remembering to do this.” “Does anyone have any questions about this process?” “I’m now going to model the ‘Check for Clues’ Step. By model, I mean that I am going to show you how to use the step. As I do this, I will think aloud so you can hear and understand what I am thinking. If I were doing this step by myself, I would think silently. Please watch carefully as I model this step, because in a few minutes you will be expected to use it, too. “During my model, I expect you to listen to what I say and observe what I do. This is just like watching a movie. You watch a movie and when it is over, you share your thoughts with other people about what you saw. You’ll do the same here. After I model, you’ll share your thoughts on how well I used the strategy.” “Does this mean you can talk while I am modeling?” “What can you do while I am modeling?” “Any questions?” Remember to fill out the score sheet for the “C” Step while I model.” “To check for clues, I first look at the title, Fueling up on Fumes. Hmmmm, that sounds like the passage might be about some kind of gas.” “Second, I look at the author’s name: Dina Betts. I don’t know anything about her, so that doesn’t tell me much.” Next, when I look at the picture, I see someone using a gas pump called Garbage Super. Maybe the article will be about using garbage to power a car.” “Now, I look for reading clues. I see the phrase organic kitchen and garden waste has been bold faced. The words biogas and fuel also appear several times in the passage, so I bet these things are important to the story.” Now, let’s look at the score sheet. Did everyone put an X by each item? What is my percentage score? Do you have any questions about how to use the score sheet? Everyone gets a copy of this. You will now use the “C” Step with me on this passage. “First, when do you check for clues: before, during, or after reading a passage? Before and during What’s the first thing you look for when checking for clues? The title What can a title tell you about a passage? The topic What’s the second thing you look for when checking for clues? The author How can an author’s name give you clues? Do you see an author’s name with this passage? What’s the fourth thing you look for when checking for clues? What reading clues do you see in this passage? Self sticking notes, squares of colored paper, peeled off, 1968 What would you do if you couldn't find any reading clues? Read the first paragraph. Groups: These groups are nonnegotiable. Group 1: Keywonie and Karon Group 2: Demarion and Taishon Group 3: Zanassia and Darius Group 4: Zazjah and Shadon Group 5: Josh and Yatziri Group 6: Gregory H. and Gregory C. Pairs Practice Students will need the Prediction Strategy Student Book and several copies of the score sheet. Now it is time to practice this step with your partner. You and your partner will both take turns being both the reader and the coach. As the reader, your job is to use the “C” Step just like I did in my model. That means you should think aloud as you check for each type of clue. Even if you don’t see one of the clues – for example, pictures or an author’s name – you should say this so your partner doesn’t think you have forgotten about it. Also, if you find any reading clues, read the first paragraph, or if the paragraph is long, at least a few sentences. You may use your outline of the “Check for clues” Step if you wish. Your goal is to practice this step to proficiency. That means you must earn a score of 100 percent on your score sheet. Any questions? As the coach, your job is to listen carefully to the reader and place an X in front of each item on the score sheet that you hear the reader mention. Once the reader has finished using the “C” Step, count the total number of X’s and figure out the corresponding percentage. Be sure to write that percentage, plus the reader’s name, your name, the date, and the passage number on the score sheet. Then, give that score sheet to the reader and provide feedback about what he or she did well and what needs to be worked on. Reader’s, once you get this score sheet from your partner, write a goal for your continued use of that strategy and record your score on your Practice Record Form. If you need help doing this, raise your hand, and I’ll help you. Finally, switch places as reader and coach, and repeat this whole process with the same passage. If you need additional practice to do this, use one of the other passages at the same level in your student book.” Individual Practice Student’s practice with you, at the same level assigned. Complete a score sheet for the student. Students record their scores on their Practice Record Forms in the individual section. Add student scores to the Progress monitoring for individual Steps. This will enable you to see which passages you scored and which the student scored. If below 100 accuracy, give positive and corrective feedback. Have student work with you using a new passage at the same level until they reach 100% accuracy. Once the student scores 100% accuracy, have the student practice the “C” Step on a passage at a higher level with you. Try to move the students up at least two levels above their starting level prior to teaching the next step of the strategy. Have students repeat the partner and individual practice with materials above their instructional level until you are ready to begin the next lesson. Work on vocabulary and book study, if not doing partner work, as you do individual work. 11/30/12 No warm-up. Get your binders and practice the “C” step with your partners. Remember to log your answers. Everyone should start with 1A until you reach 100% proficiency with the “C” step. Once you reach 100% proficiency, see Mrs. Dixon one at a time. I will do an individual practice with you. After that, do the 7-step vocabulary process on the 1st five words for set 2.
