Objective for Reading Unit 6  

Making Meaning Unit 6

Using Text Features with Expository Nonfiction

During this unit, the students use text features to better understand information in expository nonfiction texts. They hear and read expository nonfiction texts, explore text features, and write in their reading journals. During IDR, the students identify text features in expository texts they read independently and confer with the teacher individually about their reading. Socially, they continue to develop the skills of contributing ideas that are different from their partners' ideas and taking responsibility for their learning and behavior.

Objectives for Reading Unit 3  

During this unit, the students make inferences about characters and begin to explore narrative text structure through their discussions of setting, characters and the problems they face, and character change. They also make text-to-text connections as they compare two books by the same author about the same character. During IDR (independent reading), the students make inferences about the characters in books they are reading independently, write in their reading journals, and continue to confer with the teacher about their reading. They also review self-monitoring and learn "fix-up" strategies (rereading and reading ahead) that they can use when they do not understand what they have read. Socially, they work on taking responsibility and explaining their thinking.  They also learn discussion prompts to help them listen and connect their ideas with the ideas of others during class discussions.

Reading Unit 2

During this unit, the students visualize to make sense of poetry and fiction. As they visualize, they informally use schema and make inferences. They also begin an informal exploration of point of view as they consider the thoughts and feelings of characters in relation to their own. During IDR (individualized daily reading), the students continue to self-monitor their reading comprehension and begin to confer with the teacher individually about their reading lives and about the books they are reading. They practice visualizing in their independent reading and write in their reading journals. Socially, they practice acting in fair and caring ways and analyze the effect of their behavior on others.
