Research Question What aspects of literacy does interactive writing support?
Methodology Primarily used TWU’s ERIC EbscoHost Help from Mrs. Anita Owens Found 1 source using Google Final source provided in previous course Total of 10 research studies from 2001-2011.
Themes Research reveals that interactive writing supports: Phonological awareness Oral language development Word acquisition
Phonological Awareness The ability to hear different sounds within words and involves ways of breaking words apart (Fountas and Pinnell, 1998) With the use of IW, research has shown growth in PA Specifically supports primary aged students w/ PA Need well facilitated IW lessons that included time for discussion, forming meaningful message and composing Perform the lessons often (4-5x’s per week) Tests given at beginning and end of studies show growth (Craig, 2006; Jones, et al., 2010; Jones, 2008; O’Connor, 2004; Roth, 2009)
Oral Language Development IW lessons allot time for authentic, meaningful conversations Book discussions Morning Messages Authentic conversations within IW lessons create bridge between reading~talking~writing IW lessons that provided time for authentic talk showed growth in composed messages (Craig, 2006; Mariage, 2001; O’Connor, 2004)
Word Acquisition Lessons provided opportunity for lessons on letter-sound correspondence, irregular spellings and sight words. Improvement in high-frequency word reading Improvement in spelling within tests and independent writing. 4 studies showed growth in word acquisition when using IW (Jones, Fargo, & Reutzel, 2010; Lundstrom & Williams, 2007; Roth, 2009; Williams, 2011)
Conclusion & Implications Phonological awareness, oral language development, and word acquisition are heavily supported by IW Use IW to integrate own ideas into framework Scaffold learning Continue to expose students to various types of reading and writing. Teacher must know students well to best facilitate
