RHPS Watching Others Work Reading Name: Erin Nelmes Teacher you visited: Sharee Gaiser Date: Friday

y 15th March, 2013 10:10am Lesson: Reading Comprehension

Purpose of visit: To see another teacher and classroom in action and gather new ideas/ strategies for your own classroom and teaching practice in reading. Guidelines: You are in the classroom primarily to learn and observe. However, use this opportunity to get involved too. Ask the children what they are learning and why they are learning it. Think about where you are at with teaching reading strategies during the Reading Workshop. Look at where the teacher is with teaching reading strategies during the Reading Workshop. What can you learn from your visit? Think about where you are at with Learning Intentions and Success Criteria in the Reading Workshop. Look at where the teacher is with their Learning Intention and Success Criteria in the Reading Workshop. What can you learn form your visit?

In choosing to observe this person, what do you hope to see? - Making the learning intentions and success criteria clear. - Determining importance in non-fiction texts - Guidelines for what I am looking for. - Assess in pairs how successful. What was the Learning Intention and reading strategy for the reading workshop? Looking for key words in a non-fiction text to write a summary using all the key words and only 20 words. Were the Learning Intention and Success Criteria for the reading workshop clearly stated and visible? I have shown you a sample of what I expect your summary will look like setting out, underlining key words, you will be able to get a good idea of my expectations as you can look at my model on the floor. The learning intention and success criteria were also written on the communication board. Were the Learning Intention and Success Criteria for the reading workshop monitored throughout the lesson and re stated? Sharee went to every group and gave feedback about how they were going both positive and constructive. At the end of the lesson was the Learning Intention and Success criteria reflected upon? Share time: Easy because or challenging because What was the reading strategy (s) observed? Zooming in on key words in non- fiction texts to then write a summary. - Bailey and Joel were able to reiterate what they were doing yesterday in relation to their next steps today. Bailey shrugged shoulders as to why we need this strategy and partner stated that so then when we are reading we are able to see and use keys words in stating what it is all about. - Cade and Hansi were working together count the amount of words on their hands as they spoke their sentence using key words. How did the teacher and the student monitor the reading strategy? In independent time students could refer to the model pages on the floor and were working with a partner. How was the achievement of the reading strategy summarised at the end of the lesson?

Sharing from each partner (sentences using key words and how much they spent). Reflective journal entry related to sum it up strategy The sum it up strategy can help me in my reading by and this will help me in my future learning because

through sharing and hence celebrating each partners success in writing a short summary reflective journal entry

What did you observe that you could try in your own classroom? The sum it up strategy with steps for progression. The whole series of lessons about zooming in on key words and writing a summary. Making a reflective journal entry at the completion of a session to make the we are learning this because and success criteria clear. Helps to relate this strategy to other curriculum areas. A short reflection on my own teaching practice in relation to today . . . Make my learning intentions clear by writing them down and referring to them. Using the reflective journal as a form of assessment of learning. Use Sharee for great strategies like this one! Utilised maths in the session. Clear progression of steps in creating a summary over time worked well.
