DEVELOPMENT OF THE PROJECT
Reading is a multifaceted process involving word recognition, comprehension, fluency, and motivation. Learn how readers integrate thesefacets to make meaning from print.
Sometimes you can make meaning from print without being able to identify all the words. Remember the last time you got a note in messy handwriting? You may haveunderstood it, even though you couldn't decipher all the scribbles.
Sometimes you can identify words without being able to construct much meaning from them.
Reading is making meaning from print.It requires that we:
• Identify the words in print – a process called word recognition
• Construct an understanding from them – a process called comprehension
• Coordinate identifyingwords and making meaning so that reading is automatic and accurate – an achievement called fluency
• To Encourage children and community members to read for pleasure andto provide the community with opportunities to engage in and communicate about reading with flexible reading choices and opportunities to thematically explore reading and reading related activities.• To Promote Library usage at schools and increase Reading skills among students, teachers and people who use the English Language.
Considering that reading is themotivated and fluent coordination of word recognition and comprehension, our objectives are based on:
• Appreciate the pleasures of reading.
• View reading as a social act, to be shared withothers.
• See reading as an opportunity to explore their interests.
• Read widely for a variety of purposes, from enjoyment to gathering information.
• Become comfortable with a varietyof different written forms and genres
So…what is reading?
• Reading is the motivated and fluent coordination of word recognition and comprehension.
