Inquiry based learning (IBL) classroom
Chall’s stages of reading development
Stage 0 (birth->6/7yrs) preliteracy concepts, emergent literacy-recognize individual words/letters
Stage 1 (6/7 yrs) phonological recording skills, phonemic awareness
Stage 2 (7/8 yrs) reading fluency, visual based retreival, phonetic approach
Stage 3 (9-13 yrs) reading to comprehend
Satge 4 (14-18 yrs/ highschool) continue to read to learn
the knowledge that spoken words contain smaller units of sound, is a form of metalinguistic awareness that is important for later reading aquisitio... words can be divided into...

percieve single letters, letter combinations
translate letters -> sounds
recognize visual appearance of common words
hold chunks of text in working memory while interpreting meaning
combine parts of text into understandable wholes
info processing model
utilizes working memory- keeps current info active, retrieves info from perm mem, utilizes strategies
automazation of lexical access
growing working memory capacity
greater related knowledge
better comp monitoring
higher adaptive variations in strategies
What facilitates the transition from “learning to read” to “reading to learn”?
- reciprocal reading,
- dialogic reading,
-sqr3 (survey, question, read, recite, review)
What role does context play in learning to read?
bow vs. bow
perceive whole words
lexical access is automated

have to know what letter looks like when you are writing it,
know how to physically write a letter
Cognitively, what makes writing a difficult task?
-attention- have to be mindful od what hands or finders are doing. part of limited working memory space
-metacognition- what are the goals- thinking about how to write successfully
-strategy use- what words are you going o use? what order?
-visual spatial abilities
What can teachers do to help develop good writers?
spend more time planning/translation
-make assignments real
-provide direct instruction
-practice with feedback
-time to plan
For most students, the revision of their own written work is challenging and difficult. Why? What techniques can be employed to improve one’s revising skills?
don't know weaknesses, common writing mistakes
-monitor, predict, generate ideas, share knowledge/presence of vocab, syntax (how you say it), relatioship between words and gist- see words, read, and understand gist
reading- see words have to understand
writing- have ideas in head that have to be put into words
