Small group intervention

Kanopy
Genre: 
The ultimate test of a student's knowledge about words is the ability to transfer this information to reading and writing. A word study intervention must include opportunities for students to apply word-solving strategies to connected texts. Organized around 11 teaching episodes, including assessing word knowledge, modeling the word-solving process, providing guided practice, and prompting students to apply strategies during reading and writing, Small Group Intervention features a small group of fourth grade students in a word study intervention that links to reading and writing. The small group format includes three components; word study lesson, reading a new book, and writing about the book. The intervention is implemented in two instructional settings. In the acquisition setting, the teacher provides explicit instruction with memorable examples that enable the students to acquire the new learning. In the consolidation setting, the students apply strategies for solving words during the reading and writing components.
