Enhancing Reading Fluency for Secondary Students - Part I [and] Enhancing Reading Comprehension for Secondary Students - Part II. Professional Development Guide.
Education Service Center Region 13, Austin, TX.; Texas Univ., Austin. Texas Center for Reading and Language Arts.
These guides focus on reading fluency and reading comprehension. Part I focuses on the instructional techniques called Partner Reading because of its strong empirical base across readers who fail to acquire reading fluency for any number of reasons. Part II focuses on reading comprehension, which is one of several essential skills that enable secondary students to learn to read successfully. A video accompanies Parts I and II. Each part consists of four sections. Section 1, an introduction, defines the purpose of the guide and outlines six goals. Section 2, Professional Development, includes speaker's notes and suggestions on how to guide participants through the workshop. Section 3, Overheads, contains transparencies with key points and activities to accompany the speaker's notes. Section 4, Handouts, includes "Workshop Notes" for participants to take notes from the presentation, "Activity Handouts" for group activities, "Informational Handouts" that contain detailed information to assist with the implementation of Partner Reading, and "Vignettes," which provide examples of actual classroom implementation. Each part contains numerous references. (SC)
