Details
R01The Reading Community
Literacy block routines are established to allow students to listen, speak and develop as readers.  Readers learn effective ways to collaboratively engage in conversations.
R02Questioning
Readers ask questions before, during and after reading to establish a purpose for reading, determine the meaning of unfamiliar words, clarify confusing information, validate inferences and extend learning.
R03Visualizing
Readers use text evidence to form mental images of how something looks, feels, sounds, smells or tastes while reading.
R04Determining Importance
Readers determine important ideas that support understanding and use key details to state big ideas in their own words.   Readers use text features to determine the author’s perspective, point of view and/or opinion and how it relates to their own.
R05Synthesizing
Readers adjust present understandings to accommodate new knowledge. Readers form generalizations, judgments or opinions of text as new knowledge is gained and apply the information across content areas.

Readers make connections to text in three ways: text-to-self, text-to-text and text-to-world.

Readers monitor their reading for understanding and use corrective actions when text does not make sense. These may include but are not limited to: searching for and using information and adjusting.
R08Inferring
Readers use background knowledge and text evidence to determine what the author means but did not explicitly state in the text.
