Research in Literacy Teaching For Diverse Learners:FieldWork Summ

  1. 1. FieldWork Summary and Reflections Emily Egan ED 5502: Research in Literacy Teaching For Diverse Learners April 13, 2011 Dr. Terri Hall
  2. 2. About My Student <ul><li>Name: Tia Pignetti </li></ul><ul><li>Grade: Kindergarden  </li></ul><ul><li>Birthday: December 20, 2004 </li></ul><ul><li>Age: 6 </li></ul><ul><li>Interests: animals, swimming, coloring, video games </li></ul><ul><li>Favorite subjects: art and computer </li></ul><ul><li>Favorite book: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe </li></ul><ul><li>Favorite movie: Harry Potter series </li></ul>
  3. 3. ELP Results <ul><li>Group Rhyme Awareness: 10/10 </li></ul><ul><li>Spring Kindergarden Benchmark: 9-10 </li></ul><ul><li>Lower Case Alphabet Recognition: 25/26 </li></ul><ul><li>Spring Kindergarden Benchmark: 23-25 </li></ul><ul><li>Letter-Sound Knowledge: 21/26 </li></ul><ul><li>Spring Kindergarden Benchmark: 19-23 </li></ul><ul><li>Spelling: 18 </li></ul><ul><li>Spring Kindergarden Benchmark: 10-15 </li></ul><ul><li>High Frequency Word Identification: 90/100 </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  4. 4. Strenghts and Areas to Improve/Needs <ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  Strengths-  Met benchmarks for all activities.  Exceeded K benchmark in spelling.  Tia is very strong with sight word identification and phonemic awareness skills.  Tia is very ambitous and enjoys being challenged. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Areas to improve-  Letter-sound knowledge, spacing between each word when writing, mixes up p&q, b&d. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Needs- Tia needs build her letter-sound knowledge and expand her vocabulary base to develop reading fluency. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Favorite Lesson Plan/Activity <ul><li>Word Families </li></ul><ul><li>- I wanted to strengthen Tia's letter-sound knowledge.  Word family activities, would allow Tia to understand that one letter can change a word and that by blending sounds together you read whole words. </li></ul><ul><li>- Focused on ending word families -am, -ap, and -et </li></ul><ul><li>-  Tia read a short 4-5 sentence story for each of the different word family sets that contained -am, -ap, or -et endings. </li></ul><ul><li>-After each story, Tia would place the correct beginning letter in front of the -am, -ap, or -et word family endings. </li></ul><ul><li>For example: h-am, j-am, y-am,  r-am, m-ap, c-ap, g-ap, g-et, p-et, v-et. </li></ul><ul><li>-Finally, Tia read -am, -ap, -et vocabulary words flashcards. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Final Reflections <ul><ul><li>It was nice to be able to administer a quick and easy assessment like the ELP and be able to identify Tia's strengths and weakness so that we could get right to work. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This experience really helped me to see how important it to get to know your students interests.  If you can find a way to connect the material you are teaching with  students interests, they are more likely to stay engaged and learn the material. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>I learned to always overprepare and plan but also to be flexible and expect the unexpected. </li></ul></ul>
