Reading Log 5:“The Essentials of Teaching Children to Read” Chapter 3OBSERVATIONS:-Fluency:
o
Accuracy and ease of decoding
o
Age of grade level appropriate reading speed or rate
o
Appropriate use of volume, pitch, juncture, and stress inone’s voice
o
Appropriate text phrasing or “chunking”-Skills that make a fluent reader:
o
Automaticity: translating letters to sounds or wordseffortlessly and accurately
o
Expression: using proper intonation in one’s voice
o
Rate: attaining appropriate reading speed according to thereader’s purpose or the type of passage
o
Phrasing: reading orally large chunks of text such asphrases or sentences smoothly without hesitating,stopping to decode, or rereading-Fluent readers can decode the words in text accurately andeffortlessly, and read with correct volume, phrasing, appropriateintonation, and a reasonably rapid rate so that they reading asbecome “automatic”-Most prominent theory that explains how readers become fluent
 
is the Automaticity theory
o
Explains how reading fluency develops in the way that thehuman mind functions like a computer, and that visualinput is sequentially entered into the mind of the reader-Chall’s Stages of Reading Fluency
o
Stage 0: Children engage in a pseudo-reading; will retell afamiliar story with the aid of pictures
o
Stage 1: Begin to focus on the text on the page
o
Stage 2: Consolidate what they have learned about readingin Stage 1 (the connections between letters and sounds) byreading easy books that are familiar or well-known
o
Stage 3-5: In stage 3, children read for knowledge and forinformation; stage 4 readers gradually become able to lookbeyond the literal meaning of text and consider contentfrom more than one single point of view; stage 5, readersare self-directed and have learned to read many genres of text-Fluency involves a process that looks different over time:
o
Begins with fluent letter and sight word recognition
o
Moves to fluent decoding or automaticity
o
Fluent access to vocabulary and comprehension strategies-Fluency practice is most effective when:
o
 The reading practice is oral
 
o
It involves repeated readings of a text
o
When studies receive guidance or feedback from teachers,parents, volunteers, and peers-Seven characteristics of effective fluency instruction and practicedrawn from evidence-based research:
o
Explicit instruction
o
Model
o
Reading Practice
o
Access to Appropriately Challenging Reading Materials
o
Use of Oral and Silent Reading
o
Monitoring and Accountability
o
Wide and Repeated Reading-An effective teacher always maps our her lesson plan well beforeimplementing it-Decodable text: usually short books that use common spellingpatterns (orthography)-Logographic reading: words can be recognized as wholes withoutanalysis of the parts-Phonological recording: words can be recognized throughrecoding each letter into a sound, holding the sounds insequence in short-term memory, and then blending thesequenced sounds together-The drastic strategy:
