TRAINING FOR STUDENTS, TEACHERS BOOSTS READING SCORES `IT'S NOT A MYSTERY; WE KNOW WHAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN TO TEACH READING,' OFFICIAL SAYS  Date: 05-07-2002; Publication: Denver Rocky Mountain News; Author: Julie Poppen and Nancy Mitchell
The National Reading Panel issued a report in 2000 outlining research-proven methods for teaching reading. Here are the five skills children must learn to read: 1. Phonemic awareness - the ability to hear, identify and work with the individual sounds in spoken words. Example of instructional strategies include asking children to recognize the same sound in different words, as in fix, fall and fun. 2. Phonics - the understanding that there are systematic and predictable relationships between written letters and spoken sounds. Examples of instructional strategies include asking children to convert letters into sounds and then blend the sounds together to form recognizable words. 3. Fluency - the ability to read accurately and quickly. Children learn this skill best when they read and reread aloud as they receive guidance or feedback. Silent, independent reading is not as effective. 4. Vocabulary - the understanding of words needed to communicate effectively. Children learn most words indirectly, through everyday experiences with oral and written language. Talking with other people, listening to adults read and independent reading are effective. 5. Text comprehension - the ability to comprehend what is read. Suggested strategies include asking students questions about what they have read and requiring them to come up with questions as well.
