Reading lesson plans will vary depending on the grade, age and reading ability of your student. If you are lucky enough to teach in a situation where you can tailor your student’s reading lesson plans to each individual student, your students will be able to get more out of reading.
If you are teaching in a public school system, you will probably have less time and room to tailor reading lesson plans to each student’s specific needs. As in any subject, you are going to have those students who are gifted readers and have a voracious appetite for books and reading. You will also probably have those students who would be happy to never read the rest of their lives and just have no interest. If you have slow students or those who may have a reading disability, a good site to check out is Reading Success Lab. Hopefully, your school will have a special program especially for those who have reading disabilities such as dyslexia.
Tailored Lesson Plans
Private schools and home schools have it a little easier. With a home schooled student, you can tailor reading lesson plans exactly for that student. You don’t have to worry about any other students, and your student will thrive with the one-on-one experience. Private schools generally have more money to work with than public schools, so there is often a lower teacher to student ratio, which means more one-on-one attention for each student. One site that can help with reading lesson plans in general is The Teacher’s Corner.
Reading lesson plans can help teachers teach their students. Of course, in some classroom settings, you will be teaching a mid-level reading section for each class. You simply can’t teach the gifted readers and the slow readers one-on-one in many settings. Reading lesson plans can help determine the best way to teach your students as a whole, and hopefully will give you a clearer vision of what you want to accomplish with your students.
