12 Texts That Facilitate Authentic Reading Strategies for Novice, Experimenting, and Proficient Readers
Hill, K. Dara
Reading Improvement, v54 n4 p123-130 Win 2017
The current climate of reading instruction calls for fluency strategies that stress automaticity, accuracy, and prosody, within the scope of prescribed reading programs that compromise teacher autonomy, with texts that are often irrelevant to the students' experiences. Consequently, accuracy and speed are developed, but deep comprehension is compromised. In the endeavor of connecting readers to authentic literature and developmentally appropriate fluency and comprehension strategies, this article provides recommendations for 12 texts, text features, and corresponding strategies for novice, experimenting, and proficient readers. Recommendations are specific to each title, in the endeavor of promoting young children's interests and abilities, while linking fluency and comprehension development.
