ESOL Performance Standard(s) and Indicator(s)2.1, 2.3, 3.2, 4.1, 4.2
Activity ObjectiveReflect on competencies and reading strategies while reading class texts
Activity DescriptionTo prepare for each class, candidates look at the topics for that date and preview reading assignments. Candidates reflect on which competencies relate to the assigned reading. Before reading, identify the text strategy you will use for your text reading (see calendar). During reading, think of yourself as a reader and your reading processes AND think about the concepts you will use as a teacher. After you read, summarize the key concepts; include your thoughts about what you have read. Reflections must include specific applications of the text strategy to English Language Learners and special needs populations. In the margin of your reflection, indicate the reading endorsement competency that is addressed. Within the reflection, address how what you have read will help you with the English Language Learner. Be sure to write ELL and highlight so that it will be easy to identify.
