Word Identification: Second to NONE
Struggling adolescent readers must be taught strategies to decode multisyllabic words in content areas and with complex texts. The Strategic Instruction Model(SIM) Learning Strategy, the Word Identification Strategy is a game changer for many students and can be that break-through strategy to propel them into becoming a confident reader. This session will focus on: the introduction of a diagnostic instrument for pre and post- tests to aid in the decision-making for a match between the student and the intervention; the use of a tool that measures the reading efficacy beliefs of a student; the student data collected using the strategy; the use of a progress monitoring tool to record student data and provide student progress reports for multiple stakeholders; and the identification of the high leverage practices that should drive this intervention. This is not a professional development session to learn how to implement the strategy. If you are interested in implementing the Word Identification Strategy, please contact the presenter or KUCRL for the name and location of a certified SIM Professional Developer to provide the professional development for this SIM Learning Strategy.
