Savoring Reading Schoolwide
Reis, Sally M.; Fogarty, Elizabeth A.
Educational Leadership, v64 n2 p32-36 Oct 2006
Over the past four years, educators and researchers from the University of Connecticut have worked with urban high-poverty schools to implement an alternative reading instruction program called the Schoolwide Enrichment Model in Reading (SEM-R). Based on Renzulli's Enrichment Triad Model, the SEM-R works through planned enrichment experiences to guide students to read more challenging yet enjoyable texts. The authors explain the three instructional phases of the model: (1) exposure to literature and higher-order thinking skills, (2) supported independent reading, and (3) high-interest text-related activities. They give examples of how schools have carried out each phase and provide positive results for classrooms that have used the SEM-R methods.
