Lamar is a struggling reader in your first grade classroom. You are concerned about his difficulty with reading comprehension and want to provide more practice. You have noted that explicitly teaching reading comprehension strategies through question-based activities has really helped Lamar. You are planning a reading lesson of a grade-appropriate reading selection with all of your students’ needs in mind. As you consider the needs of Lamar, you wonder which reading comprehension strategy you will teach your students and have them practice in their prereading, during-reading, and postreading activities.
Description of Response:
You must complete 3 activities:
one prereading, one during-reading, and one postreading activity to reinforce your students’ comprehension of the reading selection.
For each of the 3 activities you must:
a. Explain how the activity applies the new reading comprehension strategy and addresses the issues in the scenario.
b. Give evidence from the chapter (with citations from your textbook – using page or section numbers) supporting how each activity helps students apply the new reading comprehension strategy and its appropriateness for Lamar and other struggling readers in your class.
Describe and justify how your three activities would improve student engagement and reading comprehension in the scenario.
