AM 3
Reading Continuous Texts- Whole Stories and Information Texts
Presenter: Irene Huggins

In Becoming Literate: The Construction of Inner Control, Clay (1991) states that the student has a “right” to an orientation before reading a text. She stresses the importance of talking with children before they read a new book, helping them to understand the overall meaning and the structure of the text. This session will focus on how teachers prepare students to read a variety of books, highlighting the differences between the orientation of storybooks and information texts that are used in Reading Recovery lessons.
