GOALS/ FOCUS

1. The Reading Seminar curriculum focuses on the acquisition of vocabulary and the mastery of basic reading skills as applied to nonfiction.

 2. Where traditional language arts classes focus primarily on the analysis of literary elements and comprehension of fictional novels and short stories, Reading Seminar classes focus on understanding and interpreting nonfiction materials such as essays, editorials, reviews, magazine and newspaper articles.

 The goal of the Reading Seminar class is to improve all students’ reading comprehension by reviewing and practicing individual reading skills such as:

Questioning

Inferring

Identifying authors purpose and

Identifying main idea.

 

While reading students will be learning to note:

contrasts and contradictions

extreme or absolute language

numbers and stats

 quoted words

word gaps and

text structures.

 

v  Reading Seminar is a sixty-minute class that meets every other day.  Students may not have the same teacher for reading enrichment as they have for language arts class.

v  Students will be quizzed on one unit in their Wordly Wise vocabulary books every other week.

v  Students will be given a Wordly Wise vocabulary book to take home, but all other reading materials and books will be kept in class.

v  Students should expect some homework if the assignment is not completed during class.

v  Studying for vocabulary tests will be the primary homework focus for students outside of class.  The tests are challenging, and students are expected to study their vocabulary definition worksheet.
