Description

This project runs in three classes, two year 6 (age 12) and one mixed year4-6 (age 10-12) and has been going on for on year.

Goals

Goals: to increase the students ability to read and comprehense texts

Methods

Methods: every student have tasks, based on the students ability to read and understand the texts, which they do on their own digital units.We have decided that the class work with JustRead three times/week, around twenty minutes every time. The students have the possibility to work when they got time and at home.

To help us with this project we have external support. Two tutors come to our classes every week to support the students. Every student gets about twenty minutes together with one of the tutors. They help the students to understand the tasks and to motivate them to further work with their comprehension.

Materials

Materials: computer, earphones,the computerprogramme “LexiaProvia”

Assessment

Assessment: the programme is selfcorrecting though the result from a task is shown for the student after completing it. I can, as a teacher, look at my students result in the programme as well.

ICT

We hope that the tasks in some way develop their fantasy and creates images in their minds. This can be a help when they are going to write texts of their own.
