Upload the file to submit your assignment. 1) What are the steps in a guided reading lesson (directed reading activity), and what is the significance of each step? Compare a guided reading lesson (DRA) with a DR-TA. A directed reading activity provides students with support with the instruction before, during, and after the lesson. The students are prepared before they begin to read by having the teacher work on the vocabulary that may be new and is important to know to understand the text. There is also a review of what they may already know about the subject and to share that with the class as well as what the purpose is for reading. Next, explain what skill the students should use when reading the book. It could be compare/contrast, or fact/opinion. Explain why the students are reading the text, what they should learn from it. While the students are reading to themselves, the teacher should walk around the room to see if anyone is having issues and assist when necessary. While the text is being read, the teacher will ask questions regarding the material to determine if the students can comprehend the information provided from the reading. Upon the completion of the reading, there are usually follow-up activities that will reinforce what the story was about and what skills the student learned. DR-TA stand for direct, reading, thinking, activity. With this style, there is a discussion before reading. Students will be told where to pause during their reading so that questions can be asked to the whole class. Students may be asked to make predictions before the reading and ask how their predictions are at each stage. The students are given a synopsis of the story prior to ready by point out the title, chapters, and illustrations. The students begin to read and stop at each point directed by the teacher. Once all students have reached that point, questions will start. Students are encouraged to think and determine how accurate their predictions were at the end of each section. They need to decide if they need to change or modify their predictions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
