Goals/Objectives English Language Arts Standard(s) Comprehension Skills Students will develop reading comprehension strategies by answering questions about fiction and nonfiction texts, and working with graphic organizers and summaries. Students will... • describe the overall structure (e.g., cause/effect, problem/solution) of events, ideas, concepts, or information in a text or graphic organizer (craft & structure) • refer to details and examples in text, either in passage or graphic organizer form, when drawing inferences from it (drawing inferences) • read texts with accuracy, appropriate rate, and expression to support comprehension (fluency) • read texts independently, with minimal to no assistance (independent reading) • use information gained from a text or graphic organizer to demonstrate understanding of the text (interpreting visual information) • distinguish key ideas from supporting details to answer specific questions (key ideas & details) • recognize whether they understand what they are reading, and if necessary, take steps to repair their comprehension before continuing to read (monitoring comprehension) Language/Reading Skills Students will... • use the language needed for success in school, including general academic words (which appear frequently in print, but rarely in social conversations), discipline-specific terms, and multiple-meaning words (academic language) • clarify the meaning of unknown words using strategies such as morphemic and contextual analysis (word learning strategies) Cognitive Skills Students will… • use working memory for sentence comprehension and building text-level representations in long-term memory (memory) • selectively attend to critical information and sustain attention across longer passages and question sets (attention) • develop fluency in extracting and integrating meaning from longer text passages (processing) • recognize and track temporal and causal event sequences in passages of text (sequencing) Social-Emotional/ Executive Function Skills Students will... • apply cognitive strategies for acquiring, consolidating, and recalling information from fiction and nonfiction texts • develop and practice deductive reasoning capacities • increase confidence with independent reading as a way to learn new information • be motivated to think critically about text Icon Key Audio Download English Learner Quick Check Settings Video Data Stream Teacher Manual 29
