Keepin it real
To the education industry - pretty ain't nothin. 'Pretty' means 'tryna appeal'.
Stuff that works is what I want. Below is a reading routine that works like a mudda.
Fluency development routineSupport learners to do the following:
•Select a text of approximately 300 words
•Skim the text and identify the 7 most difficult words
•Write these words out and spend time decoding them (see decoding routines)
•Begin to read the text aloud while recording and timing it (concentrate on pronouncing the last part of each word)
•Replay the recording while silently reading along - Note the difficult parts and the amount of time taken
•Repeat immediately and compare the difference
•Repeat at least three times during the week (4 minutes a day)
•Compare first attempt to final attempt a week later
Second week: Repeat with new text
If tutoring one-to-one review recordings each session.
