MTLE Business: Reading Instruction Strategies Chapter Objectives
The Minnesota Teacher Licensure Examinations (MTLE) Business assessment gauges educators' comprehension of concepts they will need to teach students in grades 5-12. The test is broken into two subtests that consist of three subareas each. The subtests can be taken separately or in one sitting, and are scored individually. They each consist of 50 multiple-choice questions and require a minimum score 240 to pass.
Topics in this chapter on reading instruction strategies are found in the career planning, student development and reading subarea of Subtest 2. This subarea constitutes about 29% of the subtest. You can prepare for questions by exploring the lessons in any sequence that works for you. Also, take self-assessment quizzes and a chapter exam to reinforce concepts learned in the lessons. If you need additional clarity on lesson topics, submit your questions to our experts.
1. What is Reading Comprehension?
When you are reading, it isn't enough to just process the words. You need to understand what you are reading, too. In this lesson, you'll learn about the steps involved in reading comprehension.
2. What Is Differentiated Instruction? - Strategies & Examples
In this lesson, we will explore the importance of differentiation and what differentiation is. We will also uncover main types of differentiation and some examples of differentiation in the classroom.
3. Strategies for Scaffolding Reading Instruction
Ever heard the phrase 'reading is the gateway to all learning'? Reading is one of the areas targeted by most states for assessment because it not only is a critical area in academics, but also an area where most students were not showing gains. This lesson will highlight strategies to help struggling readers develop skills to be successful in the classroom.
4. Reading Strategies Using Visualization
In this lesson, we will define visualization. We will then discuss why this step is important, how we can visualize, and when you should visualize. Finally, we will look at a sample from a poem and practice visualizing.
5. How to Teach Reading Comprehension
Teaching reading comprehension requires instilling in the learner the use of several strategies and skills. This lesson will focus on cognitive skills and notation strategies that will enhance reading comprehension.
6. Teaching Vocabulary in Context
Learning vocabulary in context helps people make connections for better comprehension. We'll look at a variety of learning strategies that can help students understand and incorporate new words effectively. After the lesson, test your new knowledge with our quiz questions!
