Supporting Young Adolescents’
It is during the middle years of schooling that most students refine their reading preferences, become sophisticated readers of informational text, and lay the groundwork for the lifelong reading habit. They begin to use reading to help answer profound questions about themselves and the world. With good instruction, ample time, and opportunity to read a variety of texts, young adolescents can become successful readers both in and out of school.
To support young adolescent learners, experiences should include...
- Ongoing reading instruction across the curriculum
- Instruction that is appropriate for each individual student
- Assessment that informs instruction
- Ample opportunities to read and discuss reading with others
