Three Level Guide to Reading Comprehension 1) Literal- What is written in the text? What does the text say about..? What words support this? 2) Inferential- What is written in between the lines? What ideas are portrayed in this text? What words support this? 3) Applied (What is beyond the lines/ makes you think?) Do you agree with this idea? Please give reasons.
Two Ways to Teach Writing 1) Explicit Teaching 2) Systematic Teaching good teaching approaches should encompass a mixture of the two. e.g. teach in an explicit way (make everything clear) but be systematic
EXplain Explicit Teaching (make everything clear) - teacher explains the purpose - presents task (modelling, guiding, demonstrating) - links with prior knowledge - provide scaffolding and feedback e.g. IN WRITING CLASSES-> text structures, explaining the process of writing
Explain Systematic Teaching - this is a PROCESS - teacher assesses the students' prior knowledge and the syllabus - teaching in sequence - ongoing assessment of progress
Explicit Learning Cycle Assessment --> Plan --> Teach (Explicit/ Instruction OR Systematic) --> Review
3 Different Styles of Teaching 1) Modelled Teaching Teacher led and planned. Students observe the teacher's actions and replicate. New skills and terminology are learnt. Students have to activate prior knowledge 2) Guided Teaching more student control with clear expectations of the task, teacher provide corrections and feedback 3) Independent Teaching students apply their knowledge and demonstrate their skills. Teachers provide minimal support

Assessment vs Evaluation Assessment- judgement of one's performance based on knowledge and skills, language use, ideas, organisation of information, overall presentation Evalution- assessment of overall effectiveness of learning and teaching
