You can use various supports to prepare to read a text, including graphic organizers, illustrations, and topic vocabulary.

INTRODUCTION

A graphic organizer is a visual, such as a chart, that can be used for note taking. Before reading, you can select a graphic organizer. You can use the graphic organizer to write down notes about the text you are reading and to show the connections between the ideas in the text.

You can use various supports to prepare to read a text, including graphic organizers, illustrations, and topic vocabulary.

INTRODUCTION

An Illustration

An illustration is a drawing in a book or text that helps to explain information. Before reading, you can scan the text for illustrations. Look at the illustrations and read any text that accompanies the illustrations. This will help you determine what the text is about.

You can use various supports to prepare to read a text, including graphic organizers, illustrations, and topic vocabulary.

VIDEO

To use prereading supports, try the following activities:

  • Create a graphic organizer to take notes about the text you are going to read.
    • Ask yourself: What is my purpose for reading this text? Which graphic organizer (Venn diagram, concept web, table, stacked sequencing chart, flowchart, table, or a line diagram) will help me achieve that purpose?
  • Scan the text for illustrations.
    • Ask yourself: What do these illustrations show or explain? What do I think the text will be about?
  • Scan the text for topic vocabulary and words that are boldface or italicized.
    • Ask yourself: What field of study do these words belong to? What do these words mean? What context clues can help me understand the words’ meanings?

Checklist for Using Prereading Supports:

  • In this lesson, we will review an example of how one reader pauses and reflects before reading in order to use prereading supports and analyze the text “An Exchange of Ideas.”
  • Remember, active readers pause before, during, and after reading to reflect on, or think about, what they are reading. This practice of pausing and reflecting helps readers increase their comprehension.

Skill Model:

First, the reader pauses to consider how she can use prereading supports. She organizes the types of prereading supports and her notes about the text “An Exchange of Ideas” in the following table.

Visuals

The text contains a map and illustrations of John Locke and Thomas Paine. I can preview these visuals to get a sense of the content that will be covered in the article.

Graphic Organizers

My purpose for reading is to gain information about early America. Because I will be reading historical information, I plan to use a chart to put events in chronological order

REVIEW PREREADING SUPPORTS

Topic Vocabulary

I recognize words related to early American history, such as “settlers” and “colonies.” I notice other words, such as “Enlightenment,” that I am not familiar with and will need to use context clues or outside research to determine their meanings.

Now, the reader will read the text to take notes in her graphic organizer. She will also identify any unfamiliar words and use context clues to determine their meanings

ANNOTATE

Next the reader will begin filling out her graphic organizer. In her notes, she will use the word “Puritan,” the new topic vocabulary word that she learned from the article.

ANNOTATE

AN EXCHANGE OF IDEAS

EVENT
