Group reading

Empowering students to lead their own discussion about what they have read.  Give students responsibility/leadership/tasks.

Helps to improve comprehension by increasing engagement.

Use cards as prompts to help with confidence in deeper thinking.

Use during reading as well as after reading.

Particularly interested in FORI, fluency orientated reading instruction.

students read the same passage of text throughout the week developing fluency.  Extension tasks, specific focus addressed throughout the week so students have an in depth understanding of what they are reading and can use the text to practice other reading strategies.

Will try with MG and SS groups this week in form of journal contracts, supported by me during reading time.
