Chalk Talk: Reading Miscues
There are many types of reading miscues, and it’s helpful to recognize and correct them gently. Many reading programs or assessments wouldn't call for a penalty in the case of a word or ending insertion. Sometimes, an insertion can involve the reader adding an ending onto a word, such as adding an -ed onto a present tense verb. This is considered a syntactic error and, because it changes the meaning of the sentence, this type of miscue should be addressed. Sometimes, a teacher may notice that a student is repeating words that come before a particularly difficult word; if this is the case, the student may be trying to give him/herself more time to decode the upcoming tricky word that.
