Literate environment analysis

  1. 1. Literate Environment Analysis David Barker EDUC 6706: The Beginning Reader, Pre K-3 Walden University Dr. Cassandra Bosier
  2. 2. Creating a Literate Environment <ul><li>“ Literacy is the ability to use reading and writing for a variety of tasks at school and outside of school.” </li></ul><ul><li>Tompkins, G. E. (2010). Literacy for the 21st century : A balanced approach (5th ed.). Boston: Allyn & Bacon. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Getting to Know Literacy Learners <ul><li>Analysis: </li></ul><ul><li>Using a variety of assessment tools helps me get to know my students on a personal literacy level. Two assessments I use to understand my students cognitive and non-cognitive abilities and beliefs are “a Student’s Stage of Spelling Development” and the&quot; Elementary Reading Attitude Survey”. </li></ul><ul><li>Tompkins, G. E. (2010). Literacy for the 21st century : A balanced approach (5th ed.). Boston: Allyn & Bacon. </li></ul><ul><li>McKenna, M.C. & Kear, D.J. (1990) Measuring attitude toward reading: A new tool for teachers. Reading Teacher, 43 (9), 626-639. Retrieved from EBSCO host . </li></ul>
  4. 4. Determining stages of spelling development: <ul><li>Using this analysis tool, I am able to understand what my focus needs to be in spelling instruction. This tool helps me understand my students individual levels of development and how I can support each student. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Understanding attitudes towards reading: <ul><li>Using a reading attitude survey helps me understand my students feelings about reading and why they feel that way. </li></ul><ul><li>McKenna, M.C. & Kear, D.J. (1990) Measuring attitude toward reading: A new tool for teachers. Reading Teacher, 43 (9), 626-639. Retrieved from EBSCO host . </li></ul>
  6. 6. Getting to Know Literacy Learners <ul><li>Research: </li></ul><ul><li>Assessing Students’ Motivation </li></ul><ul><li>Because students’ motivation and engagement affect their success in reading as well as writing, it’s important that teachers learn about their students and work to ensure that they’re motivated and have positive attitudes about literacy. (Tompkins, G.E., 2010, p.280). </li></ul>
  7. 7. Selecting Texts <ul><li>Analysis: </li></ul><ul><li>Selecting text to enhance our weekly reading selection helps students better understand the information being taught. The more exposure to text, the better! </li></ul>
  8. 8. Selecting Texts <ul><li>Research: </li></ul><ul><li>The Literacy Matrix </li></ul><ul><li>The matrix helps you plot your text so that you can see if you are using a variety of different text with your students. </li></ul><ul><li>Laureate Education, Inc. (Executive Producer). (2011a). Analyzing and selecting text [Webcast]. The beginning reader PreK-3. Baltimore, MD: Author. </li></ul>Informational Linguistic (Words) Semiotic (Pictures) Narrative
  9. 9. “ To look at different perspectives means we might interpret them in subtly different ways” Laureate Education, Inc. (Executive Producer). (2011a). Perspectives on literacy learning[Webcast]. The beginning reader PreK-3. Baltimore, MD: Author.
  10. 10. Literacy Lesson: Interactive Perspective <ul><li>Analysis: </li></ul><ul><li>Using a reading vocabulary lesson, my students did more than just memorizing word definitions. The interactive lesson I taught helped my students developed word knowledge. This lesson helped students understand the part of speech, use their prior knowledge about the word, find out the actual meaning and gave them opportunity to see and use the word in context. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Interactive Perspective <ul><li>Research: </li></ul><ul><li>Dr. Janice Almasi explains that the interactive perspective is focused on “teaching children to be strategic processors and thinkers” (Laureate Education, 2011). </li></ul>
  12. 12. Critical and Response Perspectives <ul><li>Analysis: </li></ul><ul><li>Through a lesson on character analysis, my students were able to understand the role of the different characters in a story. Students also made personal connections by deciding how they related to the different characters in the same story. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Critical Perspective Research: <ul><li>“Teaching children how to examine text.” (Laureate Education, 2011) </li></ul><ul><li>“Think behind the text-who created it (author)? What perspective are they coming from?” (Laureate Education, 2011) </li></ul>
  14. 14. Response Perspective Research: <ul><li>Response perspective is where “the readers lived experiences are of primary importance” (Laureate Education, 2011). Ways to elicit response include: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Journaling </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dramatic Response </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Artistic Response </li></ul></ul>
  15. 15. Thank you!!! <ul><li>Any questions??? </li></ul>
