"When it comes to learning reading comprehension strategies children differ. They learn in fits and starts. What works for one may not work for another. For some it's a matter of time, for others a matter of interest. Some kids take these strategies and run with them after one whole-group "Toolkit "lesson. Others need additional time, guidance, and practice to internalize comprehension strategies and use them to make sense of what they read. The small-group lessons in "Comprehension Intervention" are specifically designed to support those kids." -- Stephanie Harvey, Anne Goudvis, and Judy Wallis
Enhance your Toolkit Instruction with Targeted, Small-Group Lessons
Created to follow each "Toolkit "lesson, the "Comprehension Intervention" small-group sessions narrow the instructional focus, concentrating on critical aspects of the Toolkit's lesson strategy to reinforce kids' understanding, step by step. Using the language of the "Toolkits" in a small-group setting, "Comprehension Intervention" approaches each "Toolkit" strategy lesson in a new way and with new texts, showing kids that they can apply the thinking and strategy language they learned within the whole group to a wide variety of readings.
Framed around the gradual release of responsibility, the four-step session structure provides explicit scaffolded instruction. With an eye towards formative assessment, each session ends with Assess and Plan, a section that supports daily progress monitoring with strategy-specific suggestions for reviewing student work, assessing students' thinking and accomplishment of session goals, and determining the need for additional practice.
"Comprehension Intervention" lessons lend themselves to a variety of instructional settings:
"Guided reading groups"-Sessions are ideal for small, flexible, needs-based guided reading groups to reinforce or extend what has been taught in a Toolkit lesson.
"Tier 2 RTI groups"-Sessions are designed to take about thirty minutes. They break down the original Toolkit instruction into smaller steps, making learning more accessible for Tier 2 students.
"Tier 3 RTI groups"-Infinitely flexible and targeted, sessions help teachers increase instructional intensity for individuals or very small groups, allowing additional time for instruction and practice.
"Special Education""-"The "Toolkit "whole-group lessons are ideal for special ed inclusion because they are based on shared readings, which allow for natural differentiation. All kids can participate in the whole group "Toolkit "lessons and then have their individual needs met in the small-group intervention lessons.
