Ehri's Stages Of Reading Fluency And Comprehension

Amazing Essays
As many teachers search for new strategies and interventions to address the lack of fluency within their reading programs, Repeated Reading (RR) appears to be a topic of curiosity. RR is an evident based strategy designed to increase reading fluency and comprehension through the development of automatic word processing and contextualized linguistic effect (Winter, 2007). Similar to the text features on a cell phone, automatic word processing is the ability to detect and comprehend a word effortlessly as the viewer glares to the next set of letters. This skill is key in increasing fluency as the reader spends little time decoding the words before them.
As the reader continues to read, contextualized linguistics takes place as the reader begins

This pre-alphabetic stage allows the reader to associate words by symbols with no regards for the alphabetic letters or sounds that make up the word. This stage is followed by the partial alphabetic stage at which the reader will recognize the relationship between letters and sounds and will focus on the easiest segment of the word to identify. Partial alphabetic stage becomes a gateway to letter recognition, sound blending, and pronunciation as students embrace the stage of full alphabetic recognition. As the level of recognition increases through repeated reading, students will soon enter the final stage of consolidated alphabetic recognition. This stage is developed through the use of repeated reading and recognition of patterns, as the information is stored in an instant memory …show more content…
RR follows the same concept as a basketball player practicing for the free throw shot. The more the player performs that action, he become fluent with the movement allowing him to sharpen the technique as he may add expression to his shot. The strategy of RR can be added to a number of task in order to obtain the desired results. In selecting a story to perform this intervention, it is recommended to use a passage that is 100 to 150 words long to peak the optimal range. While choosing a passage that is decodable, be sure to select within the passage, words that would appear difficult to the reader and front load them with the meaning and an example of the word to reduce the student’s anxiety prior to reading. Be sure to model the text to give the students an appropriate example of how the text should sound before the student makes their attempt. Have the student repeat the story as many times as needed until the text is error free. Be sure to encourage the student and provide feedback to enable the student to learn from their errors. Although studies have indicated that best results are seen when this strategy is performed by an adult, RR can be used in whole group, small group, or with a peer. If you are to perform this strategy with a peer leading the instructional aspect, have the non-reading student take notes and

    In this course we had to annotate an article over modeling in reading and writing. One of the areas that modeling needed is for guided reading. “Guided reading involves supporting students as they flexibly apply a range of strategies to processing text at graduated levels of difficulty.” (Jamison, 2011). When teachers model using a text or book this is unfamiliar to their students, it helps students learn, reading strategies, such as using context clues, letter and sound knowledge, and syntax or word structure. The goal of guided reading is for students to use these strategies independently on their way to becoming fluent, skilled readers.…

    For example, it said that students with SENs can’t learn a language, but that not the case. Learning English gives them opportunities to learn other skills, like listening, working with others, taking turns, and other social skills. I believe that students with SENs are capable of anything, if they work hard and that goes for any student. Along with talking about the myths, they also give tips on having an inclusive classroom with ELL students. This is very help for teachers, who are starting out teaching English.…

    Beginning readers use knowledge of words from speech to recognise words that they come across in print. When children ‘sound out’ a word, their brain links the pronunciation of a sequence of sounds to a word in their vocabulary. If they find a match between the word on the page and a word they have learned through listening and speaking, and it makes sense to them, they will keep reading. Vocabulary, therefore, becomes an important element for effective reading instruction. Biemiller states: Teaching vocabulary will not guarantee success in reading, just as learning to read words will not guarantee success in reading.…

    Students are asked to read aloud. They are informed that, if they become stuck, the administrator will tell them the word. Also, they are asked to do their best reading because, once students are finished reading, they may be asked to explain what they read (“DIBELS Oral Reading Fluency,” n.d.). Readers Theater is strategy to provide students’ opportunities to practice their oral reading practice. Reader 's Theater improves fluency and allows students to read with expression, since they do not necessarily have to memories a script.…

    If these problems continue, I believe that America is in for an unfortunate surprise when it comes to the subject of English education. There is value in the learning process. Within this process comes intricate and delicate learning experiences that cannot be taught by standards, or data driven assessments; they can only be taught by the teachers that take the time to establish strong relationships with their students as well as their parents. As a teacher I cannot help but to think of the question that Irwin and Knodle stated, “can there be a happy medium in satisfying the needs curricular mandates and allowing students the time they need to make connections with the writing they produce.” (Irwin, 2008, p. 45). I believe with time, we will see whether or not this is a…

    For example, after learning the sound of an students an add letters to the beginning of the word to make new words like pan, fan, can, etc. This should be expanded then by introducing short e patterns like en, ell, etc. Follow up word-building by evaluating the students by seeing if the students can decode words with the same short patters of words they have not seen before. According to the author (Gunning 2013) “students shouldn’t progress to the next level until they have mastered the current level, pg.…

    This can provide context for all aspects of the learning, through talking, listening, reading and writing (Winch et al., 2011). A once popular tool for spelling would be providing spelling tests for children to compete against their peers, however, it is important to move away from competition like views of literacy and spelling and start looking towards other methods of teaching spelling, to increase motivation for learning with students and decrease their frustration (Alderman, 2011). Encourage a classroom culture centred around a learning orientation in order to focus on children’s achievements internally rather than a grade orientation in which students feel successful if they achieved more than other students (Alderman, 2011). To encourage a learning orientated classroom it is important to present students with meaningful and challenging tasks, for students evaluation to be private and for students to be involved in decision making (Alderman, 2011). I would include an example of an activity that could be used in this way and an example of how to evaluate the students’ work that is meaningful to them in a private way, comparing the score to their previous scores, rather than other students’…

    The students with little to no English language knowledge start out at the beginner level. Those who are at this level demonstrate their writing through pictures and phrases rather than in full sentences and paragraphs. Although all English language teachers see evidence of their learners struggling with the writing process, their specific cases come from those who are at a low proficiency level. Researchers in the field of language learning strategies (LLS) have evidently focused in on strategy-based instruction (SBI) and how it can better enhance English language learners development. Researchers have proven that SBI learning is more enjoyable, effective, and efficient while also improves motivation and reduces learning anxiety (Jing, Chengchiang Chen, Adawu, 2014).…
