Supplementing Core Curriculum Reading Instruction with CAFE Menu Reading Instructional Strategies and Skills

With high stakes testing becoming an ever-present reality in public education, the ability for children to read and comprehend at grade level is vital. California Common Core standards require students to reason through the use of the written word, both in areas of language arts as well as mathematics. For those students who struggle with the basic principles of automaticity and word recognition when reading, the more complex skill of comprehension breaks down considerably. This professional development programwas created to introduce educators to a more student-driven approach to reading instruction that incorporated standards-based skills and strategies necessary to become confident readers. As students developed as readers, their interest in reading grew, thus helping to build a strong foundation for creating life-long readers.
