  3. 3. Getting to Know Literacy Learners Introduce and explain assessments Cognitive - Independent Reading Level Assessments (americanreadingcompany.org) Noncognitive - Attitude Reading Survey (McKenna & Kear, 1990) Share results and findings from data According to Dr. Helman’s guidelines, Lacy is at a beginning level in her literacy development (Laureate Education, Inc., 2010a).
  4. 4. Selecting Texts Literacy Matrix - helps analyze texts so they are useful to students and helps strike a balance for using different texts (Laureate Education, Inc., 2010b).
  5. 5. Selecting Texts Students exposed to a variety of texts at an early age show rapid development in obtaining literacy skills (Tompkins, 2010) Introduce text features Whole Group Read Aloud - Praying Mantises, by Helen Frost (2001). Independent Reading - Beetles by Cheryl Coughlan (1999) Enumeration Graphic Organizer (Tompkins, 2010) Share Lacy’s Main Topic and Three Facts from her graphic organizer Students have buckets of books to choose from for the 100 Book Challenge that include a variety of topics and both informational and narrative (www.americanreadingcompany.com)
  6. 6. Literacy Lesson: Interactive Perspective Goals Teach students how to read by being strategic processors and thinkers (Laureate Education, Inc., 2010c). Create literate learners that can read and navigate through texts independently (Laureate Education, Inc, 2010d).
  7. 7. Literacy Lesson: Interactive Perspective Part One First-Grade Reading and Science Lesson Prereading - Whole group KWL chart about bugs Teacher reads the narrative text The Grouchy Ladybug (Carle, 1996). Teacher than reads the informational text Ladybugs (Coughlan, 1999).
  8. 8. Interactive Perspective Lesson Part Two During Reading Compare and Contrast the differences between narrative and informational texts as a whole group using a Venn diagram Small group guided reading instruction (Tompkins, 2010). Use multiple copies of Crickets (Coughlan, 1999). Traffic Light Reading (Marcell, 2007). Using sticky-notes to label books ( !, ?, (: )
  9. 9.

  10. 10. Literacy Lesson: Critical and Response Perspective Goals Students learn to critically evaluate text they encounter (Laureate Education, Inc., 2010e). Read, respond, and react to texts in a variety of meaningful ways (Framework for Literacy Instruction, 2013).
  11. 11. Literacy Lesson: Critical and Response Perspective Part One First-Grade Reading Fairy Tales Lesson Prereading Whole group activity about what fairy tales are - characteristics, good vs. evil, plot Example of diagnostic testing
  12. 12. Literacy Lesson: Critical and Response Perspective Part Two During Reading Why do characters turn out the way they do? They will then listen to two stories about the same topic, The Three Little Pigs. The Three Little Pigs (Kellogg, 2002) The True Story of the Three Little Pigs (Szieszka, 1996). Think Aloud strategy (Tompkins, 2010) while listening to the stories Small group work to read narrative fairy tale texts
  13. 13. Literacy Lesson: Critical and Response Perspective Part Three After Reading Small group activity Retell narrative story from a different character’s perspective - use poster board or act out Share with class the new take How could misjudging or misinterpreting hurt others?
