Comprehension Skills Students will... • read texts independently, with minimal to no assistance (independent reading) • use information gained from illustrations and the words in a text to demonstrate understanding of the text (interpreting visual information) • 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 conventions), disciplinespecific terms, and multiple-meaning words (academic language) • understand the structural features of the English language, including syntactic features like word order and parts of speech, and morphological features like prefixes, suffixes, plurals, and subject-verb agreement (English grammar) • read texts with accuracy, appropriate rate, and expression to support comprehension (fluency) • clarify the meaning of unknown words using strategies such as morphemic and contextual analysis (word learning strategies) • recognize and apply knowledge of words and word parts such as morphemes and phonemes (word structure & knowledge) Cognitive Skills Students will… • use working memory to keep track of available words and phrases while constructing possible sentences (memory) • selectively attend to grammatical features of words and phrases while carrying out an ordering task (attention) • use visual processing skills to analyze a picture, then use language processing skills to identify written words and phrases, and then construct and analyze possible sentences (processing) • manipulate word order to build a variety of grammatical sentences (sequencing) Social-Emotional/ Executive Function Skills Students will... • selectively focus and sustain attention on relevant morphological and grammatical details in a lesson or an activity • inhibit impulsive responses • build confidence in vocabulary recognition and interpretation of complex grammatical constructions • manage the ability to process and interpret complex information Icon Key Audio Download English Learner Quick Check Settings Video 4 Art Walk Teacher Manual
