  • 2. Analysis
    Through the use of two inventoriescalled the Motivation to Read Profileand the Elementary Reading Attitude SurveyI was able to learn more about my students interests and their literacy needs.

  • 3. I. Getting to Know Literacy Learners, P-3
    Research
    Reading inventories provide us as teachers with valuable information about our students’ literacy interests, as well as their reading performance and growth (Afflerbach, P. (2007). Understanding and using reading assessment, K-12. Newark, DE: International Reading Association).
  • 4. II. Selecting Texts
    Analysis
    In creating a more literate classroom environment I selected texts for my students that were interesting and engaging,as well asmatched to my students’ literacy skills.
  • 5. II. Selecting Texts
    Research-
    The more I as a teacher learn about texts, text structures and difficulty factors the better prepared I will be to match texts with my students(Laureate Education, Inc. (Executive Producer). (2009). Analyzing and selecting text. [DVD]. The beginning reader PreK-3. Baltimore, MD: Author).
  • 6. III. Literacy Lesson: Interactive Perspective
    For a student to be an interactive learnerthey must learn to be self-reflectiveas well as an
    independent learner.
  • 7. III. Literacy Lesson: Interactive Perspective
    As a teacher I need to make my students feel comfortableabout raising their hands and telling me when they do not understand a concept.
  • 8. III. Literacy Lesson: Interactive Perspective
    Research:
    Teaching our students to be independent learners, as well as providing an environment where our students feel comfortable to ask questions provides the tools for the ultimate goal of the Interactive Perspective of literacy learning, which is to teach our students how to be literate learners who can navigate the textual world independently (Laureate Education, Inc., (Executive Producer). (2009). The beginning reader PreK-3. [DVD]. Developing Language and Literacy. Baltimore, MD: Author.
  • 9. IV. Literacy Lesson: Critical and Response Perspectives
    Analysis:
    The critical perspective for literacy instruction involves the students:
    1.) Examining textsfrom
    multiple perspectives
    2.) Critically evaluating text
    3.) Judging the validityof text
  • 10. The response perspective of literacy instruction engages the student to respond to texts in life changing ways.
    IV. Literacy Lesson: Critical and Response Perspectives
  • 11. IV. Literacy Lesson : Critical and Response Perspectives
    Research:
    The critical and response perspectives of literacy instruction teaches students to think analytically about texts; to take risksand share what they are thinking with their peers; and to connect personallywith the texts they are reading (Laureate Education, Inc. (Executive Producer). (2009a,b). The beginning reader PreK-3. [DVD]. Response Perspective (a). Critical Perspective(b). Baltimore, MD: Author).
