Description

Are you looking for strategies and ideas for your struggling middle school readers? Perhaps you are designing a reading intervention, or you simply want to strengthen your content reading strategy toolkit.

This professional development product is a 20-page teacher workbook on close reading and text-based discussion. Using two texts (one Social Studies and one Science text), this product defines and demonstrates 8 different ways to differentiate for readers of varying abilities. These strategies align with Common Core reading strategies and targets, and include detailed information on the following:

1. Defining Purpose, Learning Targets
2. Boost Prior Knowledge
3. Chunking Text
4. Academic Vocabulary (Tiers 2 and 3)
5. SQ3R
6. Partner Talk
7. Highlight with a Purpose
8. Notes and Graphic Organizers

These strategies might not be new to you or your colleagues, but this product shows you how to use all of these methods with one piece of text in a simple, straightforward way. This would make a great starting point for a school-wide discussion regarding reading strategies in the content areas, and methods for differentiating and interventions for struggling readers.
