1 istation Teacher Resource Lessons ISIP Text Fluency Lesson Design Teacher Resource lessons help students reach mastery level in a particular skill. Included in each lesson is the following instructional cycle: Teach, Guided Practice, Independent Practice, and Reteach. The lessons suggest an instructional sequence to master targeted and prerequisite skills needed to improve reading. Grouping for Differentiated Instruction The lessons were written for small groups of students. Students who have difficulty with specific skills should receive explicit instruction in small groups. However, if 2/3 (66%) of the students in one class are struggling with a specific skill, the Teach and Guided Practice may be presented in whole group. Continue practicing the skill with small groups while closely monitoring student responses. Modify lessonss according to student needs. Use data to plan and regroup students for additional instruction as needed. Assessment Overview Text Fluency is constructed in a different manner than the other subtests. Students are assessed on their skills in reading text with meaning in a specified period of time. In order to assess text reading on the computer, a maze task is utilized in which every 5th or 8th word of grade-leveled stories is left blank from the text. The student is given 3 choices for each blank from which to choose the word that works best in the sentence. It is the student s job to read the text, selecting the correct maze response for 2 minutes. This task has been shown to be highly correlated to measures of both fluency and comprehension. Procedure for Managing Teacher Resource Lessons Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Review student dataa using ISIP Reports, and establish small groups. For Tier 1 students, use Lesson 1 to ensure mastery of the skill. From the group of lessons, select the lesson which will best meet the needs of each small group. The chart below offers suggestions for where students in Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 should start with the identified assessment. After teaching the lesson, chart the progress of each student. If a student has difficulty with the lesson that was chosen, then deliver the Reteach or deliver the next appropriate lesson based on the chart. If a student demonstrates mastery at that particular level of instruction, then deliver the next appropriate lesson, advancing toward Lesson 1. Copyright istation 2009 All rights reserved. Page 1

Words in bold are said aloud by the teacher. Teach : Cloze Passages Today, we will read a story. As we read the story, we will fill in the missing words. We must use what is happening in the story, what makes sense, and what we know about sentences to fill in the missing words. Listen and watch. I will read this short story and fill in the missing words. Model the task. Read the story aloud. When you come to a blank, decide which word would best complete the sentence. As you decide which word to use, say your thoughts aloud for students to hear your thinking. A Game of Catch Pete and Pat are brother [the, and, or] sister.
