Philosophy of Literacy Instruction And Assessment

-Students need to be taught to infer and visualize text by using context clues.-Aid sudents learn sight words and fluency by re-reading the same word.-Teachers should model literacy skills and the importance of word elements.-Students must learn to monitor their reading progress in order to set up goals.-Students should have access to all literacy resources in the classroom to help differentiate and fit their needs and interest.- Students need to learn about word roots and afixes to help them derive meaning to words while reading.

There are many types of resources that can be implemented in your lessons to help students strive for different goals. Some of the resources that were the most useful throughout my internship were the following:- Picture Books- Non-Fiction Books-Hisorica Fiction Books.-DictionariesComputers/Tablets- Audio Dictionary-Audio Books-Media Center-Class Library

Philosophy of Literacy Instruction & Assessment


In order to promote literacy and influence students to read I have come up with the folowing plan for my future classroom. First of all I plan on having a classroom libary that will have chair, bean bags, etc. in which students can sit and read. In another area I plan on having a mat which we will sue to have guided reading sessions and discussions on literature. And finally I will have a center with a table were I can sit and face a small group of sudents at a time were we will work in reading comprehension, vocabulary and any other literary needs To the right is a blue print of how I plan on setting up my future classroom.

Classroom Composition

Throughout this semester I have had the opportunity to learn that there are many different forms of acessing literacy progress of students.. The following is a list of these different forms of assessment.-Spelling Inventory: This assessment allows for teachers to identify and determine which areas of a word does a stuent need more work on such as affies, syllable, etc. Teachers can look for patterns within the results in order to identfy what a student is missing the most. Spelling inventories also give other information such as the students spelling sage, power score, and feature points. These scores can be used to determine if the students needs to review specific areas shown on the results and thus retake the same spelling inventory OR move up to the next spelling inventory level.

Tools to Acess Literacy

What does the teaching of literacy need to include?

-Elementary Reading Attitude Survey (ERAS): This can be a very useful tool to use when determining a students interest in reading. This survey allows teachers to determine a students level of interest in academic literacy and non-academic literacy or in other words just for fun reading. This can be a great tool also for helping teachers build their classroom libraries.-Running Records: This is a great tool to use to acess individual students on their reading Through the course of time this tool can show evidence of progress in fluency and reading comprehension. Just like the spelling inventory this tool can also help teachers identify patterns.

Throughout this semester I have had the oportunity to use and test each of these assessments with my own students at internship.Although some of these tools required some getting used to and practice they were well worth learning them since tehy have benefited me and my students. Thanks to these tools I was able to get to know my students better such as their interests. I was able to learn with more certainty on what were some of the things they were struggling with and reflect on why. In he future I plan on using these tools since they are a great resource to use to keeep up with your students progress by analying evidence. I also plan on using these tools because I feel they will enhance my teaching and my students reading progress.

According to Buildig a Better Classroom Library by Cathy Puett Miller classroom libraries "extend and reinforce curriculum, foster independent discussions, encourage exploration into unknown genres and areas of high interest. They include not just print volumes, but also computers and audio books. " This is something I completely agree on and plan on acting upon. Literature is no longer just books there are many form of literacy and i is essential to provide them to our students to adress each of their needs, interests and learning preferences.
