Ever have a hard time pinpointing exactly where a student is struggling in reading or how to explain the impact of a deficit to administration/families?
This diagram is a wonderful overview of what exactly it takes to comprehend while reading. It breaks down reading into fluency, vocabulary and strategic knowledge by showing how all of these areas are connected to one another. If a student is struggling in one area, this diagram shows how it impacts the child's overall comprehension.
I use this after data collection to focus my instruction. I also incorporate this flow chart when meeting with parents to discuss their child's progress in reading.
