In this unit children learn that they are ready to take on big and important jobs as a reader to develop independence and to take charge of their own reading. This unit sets children up to be able to read increasingly complex texts with accuracy, comprehension, and fluency. Children will learn to stop as soon as they encounter difficulty, draw from the strategies they've been accumulating to solve a problem, and then check to see that they got it right. The teacher will focus on strengthening and expanding students' word-solving strategies, adding more tools to their toolkits, and reminding students to draw from multiple sources of information in their problem solving. Children will learn how to use strategies in higher level texts, with longer, more complex words, maintaining meaning across large parts of text as well as strategies for developing an understanding of new vocabulary words.
