"We used the tutoring/study room at the library, and I initially began working with Student 1 to determine his reading level and fluency. We utilized an online learning tool to complete a story with comprehension questions at a 3.0 level. Student 1 demonstrated excellent expression while reading, but he had trouble recognizing some words. He also skipped over words in sentences, and did not notice that the sentence became incomplete when he did so. I showed him how to utilize the read aloud feature in the learning tool so that when he is working independently, the program can pronounce any words of which he is unsure. He was able to answer most of the comprehension questions correctly. For the ones he missed, we discussed why his initial choice was incorrect, and how to eliminate wrong answer choices before deciding on a final answer. I indicated that before our next session, I expected him to complete the other two stories and question sets in the lesson on his own. We will also continue to work on his reading fluency and comprehension, and we will use the learning tool to monitor his progress. I then had him complete the placement test for the vocabulary unit, and he will complete one more vocabulary section before we meet again. I will quiz him on the vocabulary during our next session.
I also had Student 2 complete a reading placement test on the online learning tool, starting at a 3.5 level. On the first story, he score 92%. I had him complete the placement test for the Vocabulary component as well, and I also gave him a vocabulary section to complete as homework, which he will be quizzed on during our next session.
Both students were given login information in written form and instructed to complete at least 15 minutes of work a night on the online learning tool, particularly focusing on reading stories, reading information and vocabulary."
