Special Engagement: From Keys To Literacy by Joan Sedita - The Key Comprehension Routine:Grades 4-12 - Karen Eades, Facilitator
The Key Comprehension Routine: (Grades 4-12)
This program embeds comprehension strategy instruction in all content areas with the use of existing reading and instruction material. The Key Comprehension Routine teaches students comprehension strategies for understanding and learning from an increasing 'staircase' of text complexity.
The Common Core Literacy Standards place significant emphasis on having teachers of all subjects and grades teach literacy skills. The Key Comprehension Routine provides instruction that all teachers can immediately use to teach these skills and activities:
• Comprehension skills: for close, analytic reading of both narrative and expository text
• Main idea skills: categorizing information and vocabulary, and identify/stating main ideas during reading
• Text structure knowledge: at the sentence, paragraph, and longer text levels
• Top-down topic webs: a flexible, foundational graphic organizer that can be used with all subjects
• Two-column notes: a note taking format supports active reading and that can be used for reading or lecture
• Summarizing: students comprehend, analyze, and synthesize information to develop a summary of the most important ideas in their own words
• Generating questions: students create and answer questions along a continuum of thinking using Bloom’s Taxonomy
• Cooperative learning: students learn, practice, and become independent with the comprehension strategies by working in whole group, small collaborative groups, and individually
When the program is adopted by a school or district, students learn a routine for active reading and writing that is consistent as they move from grade to grade and subject to subject.
