Section 3) FAQ’s (Frequently-Asked Questions)
Question: What do I do when I have students with many different reading levels in one class? How can I manage it? Answer: There are several different approaches you can try. One is that you can actually teach a whole class lesson in a particular skill, such as main idea. But when it comes to applying it, then students can do the practice in finding main ideas in materials at their instructional level. Let us suppose you are teaching fifth grade. After teaching the concept of main idea, then the students who are reading at a fifth grade level can work on main idea in a fifth grade book, those at a fourth grade level can work in a fourth grade text, and those at a sixth grade level can work with main idea in a text at that level. In this way, you can include everyone in a major lesson, but let them do the practice in materials they can read at instructional level.
Question: I have a student who transferred into my third grade class from aother school who can not read at all. It is almost the middle of the year. What do I do? Answer: The first thing we would do is to diagnose his or her reading problem. We would administer a phonics test, a passage reading test, and a learning style test to get a complete profile of the student’s current abilities. While administering these tests we would observe the areas in which the student is having difficulty. Then you can begin to plan on how to remediate the student’s difficulties. If there are no other students in the class at the same reading level, then time needs to be scheduled to instruct the child at his or her level, possibly while the other students are doing silent reading, or working in groups or individually. The student will need to receive a mini-lesson in whatever skill is needed each day just as the other students receive instruction at their level. For suggested materials on diagnostic testing and reading instruction, see the Books and Kits page for ideas.
