  15. 15. Starter list of possible topics Starter List/Example Topics: for the PD Handout. You are not limited to these topics. This is just a starter list of suggested topics:  Critical Literacy and Elementary Literacy Instruction  Using “Text Talk” with Read-Aloud for the Primary Grades  Preparing for Achievement Tests with Authentic Literature  The Role of Phonemic Awareness in Learning to Read  Using Phonics in Context for Beginning Readers  Research-based Methods for Fluency Development  Vocabulary Strategies for Helping Overcome the Fourth Grade Slump  Think-Aloud Strategies for Comprehending Text  Managing Guided Reading Effectively Effectively  Comprehension Strategy Instruction  Using New Literacies and Technologies in Elementary Reading  Implementing Book Club/Literature Circles  Reading Methods for Elementary-Aged English Language Learners  Conferring 1-on-1 with students during reading workshop  Conferring 1-on-1 with Students during Writing Workshop  Writing Workshop with Elementary Students  Using Multi-Modal Literacies with Elementary Reading Instruction  Using Expository Text to Teach Elementary Language Arts  Digital Reading and Writing with Elementary Students
  16. 16. Literacy Journals  Note: Some of these journals are on Facebook! 1. Language Arts (NCTE journal; mainly elementary) *Be sure it is a research article. Some of their articles are “how-to” articles. 2. The Reading Teacher (elementary literacy; International Reading Association) *Be sure it is a research article. Some of their articles are “how-to” articles. 3. Journal of Adolescent and Adult Literacy (grades 6-12 and adult; International Reading Association) 4. Literacy Research and Instruction 5. Reading Research Quarterly (exclusively rigorous research; geared more for research; International Reading Association). 6. Journal of Literacy Research 7. Reading and Writing Quarterly 8. Journal of Early Childhood Literacy 9. Bilingual Research Journal
  17. 17. Locating three research articles You need articles that have been published within the last 10-12 years. You are translating empirical research into practice for busy teachers. • In selecting your three articles you will be reading as you work on your Professional Development handout, here is the link to the E-journals through UTA library. • Use your NetID and password to logon if you are off campus. You can also talk to one of the reference librarians on campus if you need more assistance. • •
  18. 18. What is considered a research article?  Results of an empirical study, e.g.,. Case study, qualitative research, survey, etc. Data was collected and results were reported.  Has section headings and key words like data collection, analysis, results, conclusions, implications.  Not a “how-to” practitioner-based article.  Should be current (last 10-12 years)
  19. 19. Library databases • Main UTA library website • Library Guide for Curriculum and Instruction
  20. 20. Research Tip: Bibliography mining.  Bibliography mining--Look in the references of a seminal article for further references to read and locate.  What other research tips can be shared?  Use the “cite” button to choose APA formatting. However, you must still proofread it.  OWL site for APA 6th edition formatting tips is a good resource.
  21. 21. Desktop Sharing: I will share my screen to do a “think-aloud” of searching several library databases  Academic Search Complete—casts a wide net  ERIC—not as wide a net  E-Journals  Visual display  Demo search terms:  1) “morph*” and “reading” [focus on teaching morphemes and/or morphology to enhance vocabulary and comprehension]. [within The Reading Teacher]  2) “fluency” and “intervention” and “elementary” [within Academic Search Complete]
  22. 22. What will the final handout be like? • Evidence-Based Handout (3-4+ pages single- spaced; include graphics and visuals). • This section reflects how educators take the research base and apply it in schools/classrooms. You should construct a handout/newsletter that could possibly be shared at a presentation that you could use at a workshop / inservice / professional development meeting. • This handout should help teachers understand and apply research-based strategies related to your focus area (e.g., fluency building, comprehension development, or whatever topic you chose).
  23. 23. 10+ teacher tips that connect or draw from the research (evidence-based practice)  10 teacher tips should be presented that focus on several key areas of a targeted grade level or grade levels.  You should elaborate (BE SPECIFIC) on the tips so that any teacher could take this from your presentation and put the ideas into practice.  Create a presentation that provides well-developed ideas that schools and teachers, in general, can use. All points must have research support (cite source). You must draw on the research-based journal articles that you read. These will be listed in your References section.
  24. 24. Webliography resources: suggested sites  Reading Rockets  Readwritethink (lesson plans)  IRA  NCTE  Florida Center for Reading Research   Other websites….  What else? Please enter a website in the chat window you have visited that supports your topic related to elementary literacy instruction.
