Last night I was reading along clickety, clickety, clickety, clunk. I fell into a pothole. I was confused. I backed up to see why and (aha) it was a simple matter of misreading a word. Off I went again, clickety, clicking along.
Often our students don’t know what to do when they “clunk”. We teach them reading strategies, but students aren’t sure when to apply them. They rummage around in their reading toolbox aimlessly. Dr. Goodreader aims to help us teach our students what strategies to apply when with a simple flow-chart approach. Using this approach, we can teach readers how to be their own reading doctors and skillfully choose the right tool for the job.
