Literate environment analysis

  1. 1. EDUC-6706R-4 The Beginning Reader, PreK-3 Dr. Denise Love 12/7/2011
  2. 2. “The better you know your students, the better you can connect with them with texts that will impact them in profound ways” (Laureate Education, 2010a). The Motivation to Read Profile (MRP) The Reader Self-Perception Scale The Elementary Reading Attitude Survey (ERAS)
  3. 3. “It’s not what we are teaching but who we are teaching” (Laureate Education, 2010a). “Reading inventories provide us with the means toasses and evaluate many of these diverse aspects of students’ reading performance and growth” (Afflerbach, 2007 p. 27).
  4. 4. Getting to Know My Literacy Learners Analysis
  5. 5.  Creating a literacy responsive environment is essential for developing readers with the skills needed to formulate understanding of grade-level text. Understanding literature and how to use it successfully within the classroom is essential for teachers (Laureate Education Inc., 2010b). Dr. Hartman suggests using a literacy matrix when selecting texts for students because it will help teachers to create a balanced and full representation of text (Laureate Education Inc., 2010c).
  6. 6. -“Research shows a strong link between early literacy and successin later grades” (Laureate Education, Inc., 2010b). -- Selecting texts that relate to my students interests will spark their interest in reading and help students to develop comprehension and high order thinking skills (Laureate Education, Inc., 2010b). --Different types of texts such as narrative, informational, online, etc. can help students to become interested in reading.
  7. 7. Selecting Texts
  8. 8.  “Interactive perspective involves really not just teaching children how to read, but how to become strategic thinkers” (Laureate Education, Inc., 2010d). The goal of the interactive perspective is to teach children to be literate learners who can navigate through a text independently (Laureate Education, Inc., 2010d)
  9. 9. - My students read a book and then do a story retellingactivity. Before reading the story the studentsexamined the cover of the story to predict what theystory was going to be about then discussed parts of astory. As the students read we stopped to discuss iftheir predictions were right and to make new ones.After reading the story, the students retold the story tome in their own words.
  10. 10. Interactive Perspective Analysis
  11. 11. Critical Perspectives: “The ability to think critically about a text is essential” (Laureate Education., 2010e). Critical Responsive teaches students how to critically examine a text such as who created the text and what the author’s reason was for writing the text. This helped my three students I worked with to think more critically about a text. They looked into the author’s purpose for writing a story they read.
  12. 12. Response Perspectives:“When students are able to respond to what they are reading, it helps themto better understand what was read” (Laureate Education, Inc., 2010f)-Students are able to connect a story to their own lives, or can relate to acharacter.- One way in which my three students I worked with responded to a storywas writing in their journals.
