This one is all about fluency. During a reading intervention that I conducted today, I actually referred one of my students to this chart, and we talked about what fluent readers do. He actually had never realized that readers should self-correct. He thought that if you re-read and repeat yourself that you actually are making more errors. We talked about the importance of rereading to self-correct so that the reader is making sense of what the text is saying. I just found that conversation really interesting, and it's something that I'm going to continue to bring up to my other guided reading groups.
Many students don't realize the different demands that are being placed on themselves, as readers, as they read different genres. Understanding the demands different genres place on them helps students identify what they should do to form meaning from the text. The anchor charts above remind students of SOME of the different types of thinking they can engage in while reading fiction and non-fiction.
One common question I ask my guided reading groups is, "How does the author's decision on what point of view to use affect you as a reader." It always initiates a strong conversation that allows students to critique the author's decisions surrounding point of view positively or negatively depending on their preference. Getting students to understand the different points of view in literature and how to identify them allows students to more easily access the text based on the type of information they will be able to expect from the narrator.
Bring it on, guided reading! ;)
