Reading for Writing: Strategies for Teaching Response Patterns Appropriate for Low-Achieving Readers.
Scofield, Sandra J.
Drawing from research and from classroom experiences, this paper suggests five strategies for use by reading teachers in helping low-achieving students write responses to comprehension questions. The strategies call for the teacher to: (1) analyze questions carefully and sequence them according to difficulty; (2) give students steps to follow in finding and verifying answers, and offer reinforcement of those steps; (3) provide ample oral practice with different types of questions and then give students ample prompts until they are comfortable with the question type; (4) respond to the process going on with a student, rather than to just the answer he or she gives; and (5) share strategies with content area teachers.
