The six levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloom%27s_taxonomy , creatively activate players’ minds throughout The Book Club Games. Players draw the main parts of the story, or generate who, what, where, when and how questions for other players, all the while focused with great anticipation. This replaces the dissecting, and often boring, traditional knowledge level questions.
Transferable higher order thinking skills, HOTS, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Higher-order thinking , let players connect, reflect and affect. Players spot inspiration from a story and transform it into actions to make their lives, others’ lives and the world better. For instance, after reading The Cat in the Hat, one player said he will organize his room like the Cat in the Hat did with his red cleaner-upper.
Players take away from The Book Club Game a set of generic question to activate deep meaning before, during and after reading.
The Reading Companion offers the same skills as the games, only in book format. One can individually journal or visualize with either tool.
Struggling and Strong Readers Build Fluency, Word Attack Skills and Motivation with Talk to Write
Struggling and strong readers’ solutions evolve through Talk to Write. Here a Language Experience Approach, https://eric.ed.gov/?id=ED040025, uniquely incorporates phonics and word attack skills.
Talk to Read engages beginning and struggling readers, ESL learners and strong readers. Whole to part learning, that is, starting with a learner’s own story to pulling isolated words, lifts struggling readers to fluency fast. Speedy mastery of skills abound.
Story-lines guide dictating and/or writing. Kids write for kids, while adults use the same story-lines to time-travel back to the kids’ ages to share their childhood lives. Older non and struggling readers talk through the story-lines to quickly become readers. These edited and published stories become motivating reading material, hence establishing a reading habit. The published books, treasured keepsakes, reveal the true meaning of writing and reading.
Isolating words from their own stories gives beginning readers a meaningful context to learn words. Isolated words are studied in their word families, as sight words, and for their phonic rules and exceptions. They are planted in Go Fish and Memory games for maximum reinforcement and retention.
Reading Solutions Provides a Peace Microcosm
Reading Solutions strategies model and teach peace using Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) through all-inclusive listening and speaking. Questions and strategies guide gleaned inspiration to actions, and also allow peace to arise from these actions and those receiving them. Meaning revealed through the strategies truly illuminate the magic and joy of reading and learning.
Peace within the learning process intrinsically motivates life-long learning. In turn, life-long learning leads to greater understanding, therefore the celebrating of new perspectives, different cultures and diverse communities.
New strategies add HOTS to avoid the traditional use of just factual questions, otherwise known to dissect the magic out of reading and learning. Computer-based reading programs, unable to provide HOTS in their assessments, unfortunately make reading seem boring and tedious. Motivated learning, here, engages higher-level connection and refection. These strategies can easily be added to computer-based reading programs.
Guided discussion teaches all-inclusive peaceful communication skills. Reading Solutions provides those of diverse and same ages, ability levels, and cultures a peace microcosm in which to build skills to become motivated life-long learners dedicated to contributing to a peaceful world with the learning and communication skills to do so.
