    1. 1. Creating a Classroom Literacy Profile<br />By: Michelle Cahoe<br />
    2. 2. Collaborating Teachers<br />Michelle Cahoe<br />5th grade teacher<br />- Language Arts<br />- Social Studies<br />Focus on low/struggling readers<br />Amanda Webster<br />Special Education Teacher 3-5<br />Reading Specialist<br />Tier 2 and 3 Interventionist<br />
    3. 3. Setting<br />Yorktown Elementary School is located just outside of Muncie. The school enrolled 494 third through fifth grade students during the 2009-2010 school year. <br />
    4. 4. Assessments<br />These are mandated by the school corporation.<br /><ul><li>AIMSweb</li></ul> - given 3 times a year<br /><ul><li>Orchard (computer based program)</li></ul> - given 4 times a year<br /><ul><li>ISTEP+</li></ul> - given each spring<br />
    5. 5. RtI Influences<br />The school mandated assessments are used to place students in the 3 tiers of our RtI program.<br />Tier 2 students are pulled for 30 minutes during grade level SSR time.<br />Tier 3 students are pulled during SSR time and 3 days a week during specials.<br />Tier 2 and 3 students also receive small group instruction in the classroom.<br />
    6. 6. How to drive instruction<br />We decided to look at what else we could use in the classroom to help drive our instruction.<br />Information we could collect as a whole class on a more frequent basis.<br />This information had to be quick and easy to collect.<br />
    7. 7. Continued…<br />Reading series Unit tests<br /> - given every 3-4 weeks<br />Running Records<br /> - given every 2 weeks<br />Teacher conferencing<br /> - every 2-3 weeks<br />
    8. 8. Informal observation<br />Students would be watched during small group, group work, and independent time.<br />These notes would be kept in the CLP as well.<br />Teachers could refer back to these notes for help with interventions and classroom instruction.<br />
    9. 9. Storing the information<br />We will be storing our CLP in a binder.<br />The binder will be kept in the classroom.<br />Print outs from the Basal unit tests and the Orchard tests will be added.<br />Charts and spreadsheets may be added as needed by the teacher.<br />
    10. 10. What now?<br />Even though this information has been collected and has a place to be stored, what do we do with it?<br />We will use this binder of information during our planning time every week to drive our instruction.<br />This data will help with instruction both in the classroom and with RtI interventions.<br />
    11. 11. Wrapping it up<br />Information for the upcoming school year<br />We are excited to start implementing the CLP this school year.<br />We are both aware that this is an ever changing process that can and will change as the year goes along.<br />This will be a great tool to use with the students, teachers, and parents to update student’s progress and drive our current instruction.<br />
