The Chain of Events
Our expert partners at Woolf Fisher shared this diagram with us to help put into perspective where our intervention sits.
My inquiry fits under our Kahui Ako Achievement Challenge 4 -
A rewording of this would be:
Increase the achievement of years 7-8 in reading, as measured by agreed targets.
The outcome I hope to achieve is improved comprehension through evaluation. Allowing students the opportunity to make evaluative judgements by having dialogic discussions about decisions faced by characters and then relating them to their own ideas and experiences.
The specific language outcome includes being able to re-organise text as well as make inferences. Being able to justify their evaluation using information from the text. This dialogic discussion with an elaborated response, with explicit reference to the text, is a focus of Talk about Text.
