    explicitly taught to students The link between reading skills and study strategies should be highlighted with students The NBSS encourages and supports partner schools to monitor and evaluate interventions initiatives and projects across the three levels of NBSS support Developing whole schools reading communities can support all learners including students who struggle with reading Use the QUip strategy to develop questioning and summarising skills Check out the Publications section for lots more strategies to enhance teaching and learning Literacy Language Learning Thinking Skills At Level 3 the NBSS works with schools developing focused and individualised interventions for small groups of students or one to one support This could involve explicitly teaching key reading and learning skills that enable students to become more purposeful active readers and engaged independent thinkers and learners Key Reading and Learning Skills Making Connections Questioning Visualising Inferring Predicating Determining Importance Summarising Synthesising Monitoring Clarifying Comprehension Effective Practices to Support Adolescent Literacy The direct and comprehension strategies Explicitly teaching vocabulary Explicitly teaching writing strategies Providing opportunities for extended discussion of text meaning and interpretation Increasing student motivation and engagement in literacy learning Making available intensive and individualised interventions for struggling readers Examples of interventions programmes and resources implemented in NBSS partner schools to support the development of key literacy language and learning skills are outlined in the Language Literacy Interventions Programmes and Resources section below Language Literacy Interventions Programmes and Resources Research points to the importance of recognising the links between behaviour and academic problems and coordinating systems for prevention and intervention in both areas NBSS research has also pointed to the association between failure with reading and behaviour difficulties For example an exploration of the reading ages of students N 2187 receiving NBSS Level 3 behavioural support from the Spring Term 2009 to the Spring Term 2012 revealed that 66 3 N 1450 of students were reading three or more years below their chronological age Additionally 4 3 N 96 of the students receiving NBSS Level 3 support had reading ages of 7 years or less The negative effect of poor reading skills are well documented and wide ranging for example poor academic achievement low self esteem lower motivation to read disengagement with learning and school and behavioural problems From NBSS work in post primary schools it is clear that the strong connections between academic achievement and behaviour can mean that addressing challenges in one area can reduce difficulties arising in another Essential Components of Reading Research shows that there are five essential components of reading PHONEMIC AWARENESS The knowledge and manipulation of sounds in spoken words PHONICS The relationship between written and spoken letters and sounds FLUENCY INCLUDING ORAL READING SKILLS The ability to read with accuracy and with appropriate rate and expression VOCABULARY The knowledge of words their definitions and context COMPREHENSION The understanding of meaning in text Reading is a complex process involving a network of cognitive actions that work together to construct meaning Baker Brown 1984 Common themes also emerge from the
