In this second unit, students will explore their own “powers of reading” that help them access text. In the first half of the unit, students will explore fictional accounts of people who worked hard to build their reading powers. Students will then refer to the characters in these books as role models of sorts, as they begin to assess their own reading abilities. They will use information about their individual strengths and needs as readers to set goals for the development of their reading powers, and will write a text-based informational paragraph about their goals. In the second half of the unit, students will focus on one specific “reading power”: fluency. They will learn about the importance of fluency, set fluency goals, practice fluency, and demonstrate their fluent reading in the end of unit assessment.
