Microsoft Word Capac Literacy Plan 2007

  1. 1. Literacy Plan K-7 Capac Community Schools
  2. 2. To ensure that every child who attends Capac Community Schools demonstrates reading literacy competency at all grade levels, it is essential that their progression along the literacy continuum be continually assessed. It is also essential that these assessments are used to guide instruction so that continuous progress is made by all children. The assessments will also be instrumental in determining if, and when, specific interventions must occur for children who are struggling in their literacy development. A combination of assessments and teacher observations will be used to track student achievement in the areas of reading and writing. The literacy plan has built in achievement levels and benchmark levels so teachers are able to determine if students are progressing as expected. As soon as it is determined that the student is not making adequate progress the parents/guardians will be informed and involved in a Reading Growth Plan to help the child. The plan will be a combined effort by the school and the home requiring the school and the parent/guardians to be active participants in the child’s literacy development. It may include attendance in appropriate interventions such as after school and summer programs. It should be recognized that there is a strong possibility of retention if students are not making adequate progress. Retentions, if necessary, should only be one of many possible interventions. Retentions should never come as a surprise to parents. The following assessments, used in combination with teacher observations, will be used to determine adequate progress: • Capac curriculum standard assessments • Michigan Literacy Progress Profile • Book Levels using the Developmental Reading Assessments in Grades K-4 and/or QRI-III and scantron in grades 4-7 • Accelerated Reader reports • STAR Testing The following Literacy Plan lists the assessments that minimally need to be administered and reported on the MLPP recording sheets. Teachers may wish to administer various assessments at more frequent intervals than listed, especially for those students who are struggling. The Literacy Plan also suggest some critical points where specified teaching strategies would be helpful, such as guided reading. It is our hope that every child who attends Capac Community Schools can achieve a literacy level that will make them successful academically, personally, and professionally.

  19. 19. Staff Use Implications All K-7 teachers, including special education, will become familiar with the plan and administer and record the assessments on a timely basis. All K-7 teachers, including special education, will maintain a composite for each child in their classroom. That portfolio will include an individual plan for each child indicating such information as concerns, interventions suggested and intervention participation. All K-7 teachers, including special education, will make parents/guardians aware of any problems their children may have along the literacy continuum. They will further advise parents/guardians about possible interventions that are available. All students who enter after the initial assessment period will be assessed by the trained staff within the building. STAFF DEVELOPMENT IMPLICATIONS All K-7 staff need to be trained in: ▬ How to Use the Literacy Plan ▬ What Interventions are Available and How to Access Them ▬ Balanced Literacy Approach ▬ Michigan Literacy Progress Profile
  20. 20. INTERVENTIONS Philosophy Instruction provided by the classroom teacher is the best first teaching a child can receive. Sometimes, however, that good first teaching is not enough and some children may struggle with their literacy development. These children may be in need of an intervention that addresses their particular needs. The intervention may be additional time, or possibly intense one-on-one, or small group instruction. Interventions can be provided by the school or by the home. The instruction might be provided by the classroom teacher, parent, relative, private tutor, paraprofessional, or reading specialist. The particular needs of the child must be the primary guide in deciding which intervention is warranted and when. The concept of, “Least Restrictive Environment,” should be the general guide. First, consideration should be given to interventions that can be done in the classroom. Then, consideration should be given to interventions that can occur outside of academic instruction time. When and only when those possibilities have been exhausted should interventions that require a child to be pulled from regular classroom instruction be considered. Parents should always be informed if a child is in need of an intervention. The need for intervention, the offer of an intervention, and the participation in interventions needs to be documented. Following the Capac Literacy Plan and maintaining the Michigan Literacy Progress Profile will supply the documentation needed. Options • Parents work at home with the child using their own resources. • Parents work at home with the child using teacher provided resources. • Parents arrange for private tutoring of their child. • Extended day programs with parent encouragement and participation. • Extended week programs with parent encouragement and participation. • Extended year programs with parent encouragement and participation. • One-on-one or small group instruction in the classroom by reading specialist or resource room teacher or paraprofessional with parent activities provided for assistance at home. • One-on-one or small group instruction outside of the classroom by reading specialist or resource room teacher with parent activities provided for assistance at home.
  21. 21. READING INSTRUCTION Philosophy Children have a right to appropriate early reading instruction based on their individual needs. No single method or single combination of methods can successfully teach a child to read. Because children learn differently, teachers must be familiar with a wide range of proven methods and materials for helping children gain reading skills. They also must have thorough knowledge of the children they teach, so they can provide the appropriate balance of methods needed for each child. When knowledgeable about reading methodologies, reading materials, and reading assessments teachers are able to make important decisions regarding the individual needs of each child. They are more apt to use their knowledge to help each child accelerate their literacy development within the classroom setting. Examples of good classroom reading practice are listed below: Use of word walls Word work activities such as “Making Words” Systematic phonics instruction that is embedded in context Shared reading that emphasizes strategy use Guided reading, using flexible grouping that emphasizes strategy use Independent reading at the child’s reading level Reading aloud Literature Circles Reciprocal teaching Reading workshop Continuous assessment that guides instruction Writing Workshop
  22. 22. PORTFOLIO MAINTENANCE Reading & Writing ♦ If students are progressing as expected then only the student composite need to be maintained in the portfolio at the end of the school year. ♦ If there is a concern about any students then all assessment data should be maintained in the portfolio. Teacher Responsibilities ♦ Assess students in according to the literacy plan. ♦ Prepare and store student composite sheets ♦ Record and save all information to assist tracking student eligibility for interventions and subsequent participation in interventions. ♦ All information must be entered by the end of the second week in June. School Office Responsibilities ♦ Compile grade level information on a database for building/district planning. ♦ Safely store portfolios over the summer break. ♦ Include portfolios in CA60 when students transfer.

  24. 24. Summary It is the policy of the Capac Community Schools that all students will read on grade level. It is the responsibility of the school and the family to take steps to make sure that all students reach this goal. Due to this policy a Reading Growth Plan has been developed as a joint effort between the school and family of the student. At this time the student is experiencing less than proficient scores in the area of reading. This plan will create a specific set of strategies that will be used by teachers and family members to help the student become a proficient reader. The attached document is a plan. While it is anticipated that it will be successful, even the best laid plans do not always achieve their goal. If the student is not successful in reading on grade level by the end of the year other steps will need to be evaluated. Those steps could include: ┴ Summer school ┴ Moving student to the next grade with support ┴ Retention ┴ And/or a variety of other appropriate strategies Benchmark Benchmark Date Expected Level Tested % S/C Fluency Retelling
