LC Module: Oral Reading Logs

“As a whole class activity, each student shares one thing from his or her learning log with the class, which creates a class discussion with input from each student. Many students find it easier to share with the whole class when they have previously written their thoughts on paper.” (Hurst & Pearman, n.d.)
“The process of using learning logs involves developing thinking and learning skills, which are enhanced by a peer partnership system. The learning log is not an in depth assessment tool but more of a snapshot of what the students have or have not understood in their lesson material.” (Wikipedia, 2015).

GC222 – Oral Reading Log – Partner Reading Summaries

GC222-S2 – Partner Reading Summaries – As directed, Alexa or Instructor will guide students, with a partner, small group and/or class, to identify the main ideas and details, while reading.  If reading URLs, handouts, notes or other consumable reading material, main ideas and details will be highlighted, underlined or framed, directly onto the material.  If non-consumable materials, students will be directed to journal the main ideas and details, using the journaling format provided.  Upon completion of journaling, a study sheet can be created by folding each page in half vertically after the first column. (Infusing summarization can increase student achievement by 33% – Marzano, Pickering and Pollack). (Option – Reading Journal Entry)

Then, the Passage One Listener will look at his or her notes and share any additional facts. Last, each small group member will try to attempt any remaining important facts missing from their passage summaries, in preparation for the Class Share Tournament.   (Infusing summarization can increase student achievement by 33% – Marzano, Pickering and Pollack).

One or more student will receive a passage number. Before reading begins, Alexa or Instructor will direct students to develop a personal Reading Log to summarize the assigned passage in their own words and provide personal thoughts and opinions. For the last step, students will also be directed to create a Passage Share Log to use to capture thoughts for the remaining passages within the reading assignment. When requested, students will focus and lead the discussion for their passage. (Teaching others generate a 90% retention rate – James Madison University, 2015). (Option – Reading Journal Entry)
