Read 4534 001 Day 7

  1. 1. READ 4534-001<br />Dr. Elizabeth Swaggerty<br />February 23, 2010<br />
  2. 2. REVIEW<br />Word Study/Spelling articles:<br />Although the article you read focused on K-2, word study spans the grade levels.<br />Focus on generalizations (remember –able, -ible?) <br />The article from the Houston Chronicle seems to suggest that spelling doesn’t matter anymore if kids aren’t taking traditional spelling tests, but in reality, spelling still does matter and we’ve found better ways to support kids in spelling and word knowledge, especially when they are writing independently. <br />Many kids are very successful with spelling in the traditional way … memorization. But, are they able to spell when they write independently? <br />Writing Mini-lesson: In-text citations (and in text; & within parentheses of citation)<br />Postmodern Read Aloud Books: DO NOT OPEN THIS BOOK! By Michaela Muntean and Pascal Lemaitre, The Monster at the End of This Book or Please Do Not Open This Book! By Jon Stone, That Rabbit Belongs to Emily Brown by Cressida Cowell and Neal Layton<br />

  5. 5. APA style<br />There is no use hiding …<br />
  6. 6. APA can be your friend.<br />
  7. 7. Writing Mini-Lesson<br />REVISE….<br />1<br />“Tip 1 talks about how you have to determine what your students know about the alphabetic, pattern, and meaning layers of the orthography.”  <br />“The first investigation talked about the students misspelling their words in their journals and the teacher mad the spelling list focus on the misspelled words.”<br />2<br />“The article explains how you should always ….”<br />“You should also be sure to ….”<br /> <br />
  8. 8. I have 3-5 articles that look promising … now what?<br />
  9. 9. Start reading them <br />Determine “fit” with your topic<br />(3) What type of article is this?<br />Is it peer-reviewed? It is scholarly? Is it a research study?<br />(5) Take notes<br />(6) Add to the literature review matrix<br />
  10. 10. Try not to get frustrated …<br />This takes time and you will run into “dead ends.”<br />

  13. 13. Practice<br />She’s My Best Reader<br />
  14. 14. Examine the citations and reference lists of good articles<br />
  15. 15. Once your matrix is complete …<br />It is your “cheat sheet.”<br />Look for patterns, varying perspectives, discrepancies, common findings, etc. <br />You want to present a “full picture” in your paper.<br />No opinions yet … just the facts right now.<br />What does the research say about your topic?<br />Pull it together.<br />Look for topics, subtopics, etc. <br />THINK!<br />Draft an outline or graphic organizer.<br />
  16. 16. Writing your draft<br />Write a synthesis of the content of all of the items noted in the literature review matrix. Be careful that you don’t simply restate each reference’s findings. Work to synthesize the information in a cohesive, organized manner that demonstrates your depth of knowledge regarding this topic. <br />Next, write a reflection associated with your study of this topic. In your reflection, include the following: what you have learned and why study of this topic has been especially meaningful to you.<br />Include an APA style reference list of at least ten references from scholarly journals at the end of your paper. <br />The entire paper should be 10-12 pages, including references.<br />Incorporate elements of effective written expression within your paper: good organization, clarity and explicitness of your written content yet sufficient elaboration and explanation of detail, correct grammar, spelling, punctuation.<br />
