  • Hello, my name is Ashley Trimble and I decided to use technology with my Guided Reading group.

    1. 1. Technology in Guided Reading IP&T 287 Ashley Trimble
    2. 2. Learning Objective <ul><li>1st Grade Language Arts Standard 5 Objective 2a- Read grade level text in three- to four-word phrases using intonation, expression, and punctuation cues. </li></ul>
    3. 3. Part 1 <ul><li>First, I played them a recording of my roommate reading a book in a boring voice with no expression using a tape recorder. </li></ul><ul><li>Second, I showed them a clip from, “You’ve Got Mail” on a laptop when Meg Ryan read a book with captivating expression. </li></ul>
    4. 4. Part 2 <ul><li>After working with the children on their expression for about a week, I moved on to part 2 of the project. </li></ul><ul><li>For part 2 I recorded each of the children reading, had them listen to it, and evaluate themselves on how their expression sounded. </li></ul>
    5. 5. Pictures
    6. 6. <ul><li>WHAT WENT WELL </li></ul><ul><li>Students were engaged the whole time </li></ul><ul><li>Students related to the voice on the recorder and the movie </li></ul><ul><li>The technology was easy to use and took no extra time </li></ul><ul><li>Students were able to hear what they sound like when they read </li></ul><ul><li>WHAT WENT NOT SO WELL </li></ul><ul><li>Since the other children in class were doing Centers at this time, it was hard for my group to hear the movie and their voices on the recorder. </li></ul><ul><li>In the future, I would take my group out in the hall to listen to the movie and recorder. </li></ul>
    7. 7. 4 Principles of Effective Technology Integration <ul><li>Principle 1: Student Use of Technology: I was the main operator of the technology, but my students were active participants because their voices were the ones being recorded. </li></ul><ul><li>Principle 2: Technology is Essential: The computer and tape recorder added to the learning because it was simple to use, but its effect was profound. It motivated the students to use better expression when they read because they could actually hear what they sound like when they read aloud. </li></ul><ul><li>Principle 3: Focus on Learning Task: Since pressing a button on a recorder is fast and simple, the main focus was on reading with expression not on the technology. </li></ul><ul><li>Principle 4: Added Value: This lesson could have been done without technology; however, it would not have been as clear, effective, memorable, or fun. Although it only took an extra 5 min to add technology to my lesson, it added immense value because the children were able to see and hear good and bad examples. Further, they were able to hear themselves read and hear the places they need to improve on. </li></ul>
