Phonological/Phonemic Awareness The ability to recognize and manipulate units of sound in spoken language such as words, syllables, onset and rime, and phonemes. Phonics/Decoding The ability to relate speech sounds to specific letters (phonics), along with the ability to apply knowledge of lettersound relationships to the process of sounding out and reading words (decoding). Word Structure & Knowledge The ability to recognize and apply knowledge of words and word parts such as morphemes and phonemes. High-Frequency Words The ability to quickly and automatically read common high-frequency words by sight. Fluency The ability to read texts with accuracy, appropriate rate, and expression to support comprehension. Capitalization & Punctuation The ability to use knowledge of conventions when reading. Vocabulary Acquisition Skills High-Frequency Words The ability to quickly and automatically read and understand common high-frequency words by sight. Word Learning Strategies The ability to clarify the meaning of unknown words using strategies such as morphemic and contextual analysis. Academic Language The ability to use the language needed for success in school, including general academic words (which appear frequently in print, but rarely in social conventions), discipline-specific terms, and multiple meaning words. Comprehension Skills Listening Comprehension The ability to listen to and comprehend spoken language and derive meaning from oral texts. Key Ideas & Details The ability to distinguish key ideas from supporting details. Independent Reading The ability to read texts independently, with minimal to no assistance. Monitoring Comprehension The ability of learners to recognize whether they understand what they are reading, and if necessary, to take steps to repair their comprehension before continuing to read. Craft & Structure The ability to describe the overall structure (e.g., cause/effect, problem/solution) of events, ideas, concepts, or information in a text or part of a text. Drawing Inferences The ability to refer to details and examples in a text when drawing inferences from it. Interpreting Visual Information The ability to use information gained from illustrations and the words in a text to demonstrate understanding of the text. Cognitive Learning Skills Memory The ability to use both working memory and long-term memory to understand and retain information. Working memory is the capacity to keep information in mind over the short term, while integrating or manipulating it. Longterm memory is the capacity to store and retrieve information over hours, days, or years. Attention The ability to focus on specific information, to sustain that focus, and to ignore distractions, while carrying out a task. Processing The ability to rapidly interpret and integrate auditory and/or visual information. For example, interpreting a complex burst of acoustic information to identify a phoneme, or integrating a set of lines and curves to recognize a letter. Sequencing The ability to track the order of things like the sounds in a word, the words in a sentence, the sentences in a paragraph, or the events in a timeline. Copyright © Carnegie Learning, Inc.
