Reading BII

The goal of Level BII is for students to develop their ability to visualize the contents of a passage by identifying key details and descriptions for them, extracting ideas, and comparing and contrasting information. Students will also learn to complete a brief description, itemize information appropriately, and group similar/different information.

● Level BII Goals:

  • Learn to identify relationships between key words in a passage

  • Learn to identify and extract pieces of information related to a key point in a passage

  • Learn to compare and contrast information in a passage

  • Review key vocabulary

● Good Work Skills in this level include:

  • Reading directions and examples carefully

  • Reading passages for comprehension

  • Being able to remember and completely write the correct answer or sentence

  • Writing neatly within the box or line provided

  • Writing the same size as the words on the page

  • Re-reading answers to verify they are correct

  • Ability to correct easily and independently (don’t forget to grade every day!)

● Time Goal:

  • 2-3 minutes per page

  • The study time goal is 15-20 minutes per day.

  • Your Instructor will continually adjust the pages to adhere to this goal

● Grading Reminders:

  • Students must be able to learn from their mistakes daily

  • Take the time to grade and let them find and correct their own errors independently

  • Students can use what they have learned and apply it to the next day’s assignment allowing them to move smoothly and independently through the assignments.
