Product Description
Use TWA for your intervention students and give them a strategy for the metacognition required in reading comprehension to understand the text and monitor their own understanding. TWA is a validated Self-Regulated Strategy Development (SRSD) model for reading comprehension. This strategy works for all struggling readers including students with learning disabilities, emotional and behavioral disorders, and ADHD.

Included materials:
• Background Information and Teacher Directions
Learn why and how to use these TWA materials to support your striving readers.
• TWA Posters
For your classroom space, in several styles
• Student reference sheets for Interactive Notebooks
½ sheets of the poster
• ¼ page TWA Reference sheets
Perfect for putting on a mini ring or up on a bulletin board with examples of each step.
• ¼ page Summarizing Strategies
Give your students prompts and options for summarizing with these cards.
• Worksheet
Use of the worksheet should be phased out, or used intermittently so students don’t rely on the worksheet to use the strategy
• Checklist
The checklist can be given to students as a permanent copy or as an actual checklist they complete during the practice stage. It can also be a good check-in if given after the student has generalized the strategy.
• Task Cards
Task cards are included with 3 author’s purposes: persuade, inform, entertain. These cards show students that TWA can be used for any type of reading. Have students complete a checklist or worksheet with these task cards.
• Check-In Formative Assessment
Give students this quick check-in to see if they understand the basics of TWA.
• Card Sort to check for memorization
• Bookmarks
8 bookmarks with TWA reminders and a fun character to remind your students to use TWA.
