Students, who struggle with reading, need intervention services that will boost their skills, abilities, and self-confidence.  As educators, we have to provide techniques and strategies that are research based and highly effective to closing achievement gaps.  We cannot afford to have at-risk learners.  Differentiation, scaffolding, and small group instruction are the keys to academic success.  Remember, reading intervention services and programs supplement the core reading curriculum.  Additionally, reading intervention services and programs are not designed to replace whole group instruction.

Making Predictions

by Tanika Johnson

Students learn the art of making predictions by asking the following:  What do I already know?  What have I learned so far?  Before reading, we ask them to read the title and view the illustrations to make a prediction.  Throughout reading, we request for them to think about the following:  What will happen next?  After reading, they are confirming or adjusting their predictions.  To elaborate more on making predictions, please check out the "Making Predictions" PowerPoint created by Mathews Local School District.
