From Theory to Practice

 

OVERVIEW

A majority of students in grades 46 are beyond decoding instruction and need more assistance with comprehension to help them become successful, independent readers. Strategic reading allows students to monitor their own thinking and make connections between texts and their own experiences. This lesson introduces students to the QuIP (questions into paragraphs) strategy, a technique that involves graphically organizing information and synthesizing it in writing.

FROM THEORY TO PRACTICE

McLaughlin, M., & Allen, M.B. (2002). Guided Comprehension: A teaching model for grades 38. Newark, DE: International Reading Association.

  • Guided Comprehension is a context in which students learn comprehension strategies in a variety of settings using multiple levels and types of text. It is a three-stage process focused on direct instruction, application, and reflection.

  • The Guided Comprehension Model progresses from explicit teaching to independent practice and transfer.

  • Summarizing is defined as synthesizing important ideas.

  • Current studies demonstrate that when students experience explicit instruction of comprehension strategies, it improves their comprehension of new texts and topics (Hiebert et al., 1998).
