The Dissertation Research Plan – Katherine Wood 1. Title How important is daily exposure to stories, poems and storytelling to children’s attainment in Literacy? 2. Rationale and Need What is your research focus? To look at how a class of children might improve their Literacy by being exposed to stories/storytelling on a daily basis and to see whether motivation and engagement in Literacy lessons can be increased.
At the start of each day the teacher provides me with a sheet of what the learning objectives are and what groups we are all to work with a what times for the full school day. From this both the children and myself are clear about what we are learning. 1.2. Summarise the difference between formative and summative assessment. A formativie assessment is a variety of informal and formal assessments measures that are used by teachers during the learning process in order to adapt teaching and learning activities to improve a child’s attainment in school, it is designed to give pupils feedback in order to improve in their learning and help a pupil understand what is expected of them in relation to their educational success and give ideas as to how to develop their work.
Anisha Spellman Benchmark Assessment: Language Arts Unit Plan Grand Canyon University: EED-525 November 27, 2013 “Learning to read and reading to learn” is a quote that one of the schools in my district uses to help motivate reading in all students and their families. I believe reading is an important aspect of all lives. What exactly would the world be like without the reading? It is crucial that we teach this to all of the little children while they are young and trying to learn. The more they practice and the more teachers and parents instill this in their minds, the better they will become.
Philosophy of Literacy Instruction I believe that Tier I literacy instruction should be delivered in such a way that the students are nurtured to live lives in which reading and writing is an integral part. I want children to see writing as a powerful way to communicate and understand the thoughts they are developing in and out of school. I also believe that there is no one best way to mentor children into becoming lifelong readers and writers. I believe that children should have daily opportunities to read and write. I believe that teaching reading and writing begins with helping children want the life of a reader and writer.
I think the aim of literacy is to teach children/young people the ability to understand the English language both verbally and non-verbally. Children/young people should be encouraged to explore the way the English language works for example through phonics for vocabulary, reading, writing and spelling, this will help children and young people to have the knowledge to be able to read, write and spell with confidence. Children and young people will be able to expand their vocabulary through holding literacy skills. Being a secondary school the school has an English department that teaches literacy to student from year 7 (key stage 3) through to year 13 (A level), students have 3 hours of English a week up to the end of their GSCS’s, A level English students would have 5 hours a week. We also have core studies, which are run by HLTA in the learning support department.
I think that home visits with children and their families, supports literacy learning in the classroom and strengthens school/home partnerships. You really learn so much just from doing one home visit with a child. You not only learn things about children that you never would have known but you also learn their families and what they believe in. You get to see where the child comes from; and by knowing things like this, it can help you understand the child in the classroom more. You can also see if the children have any books at home.
Modifying a Lesson Plan for English Language Learners (ELL) By Linda Brown Teaching Literacy to ELL Students E6536 Instructor: Ella Benson Argosy University As the number of English learners increases in schools across the United States, educators are seeking effective ways to help them acquire the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in the classroom. The SIOP Model* is a research-based and validated model of sheltered instruction. Professional development in the SIOP Model helps teachers plan and deliver lessons that allow English learners to acquire academic knowledge as they develop English language proficiency. The Center for Applied Linguistics is an excellent place for educators to gather research-based tools for working effectively with English Language Learners.This is a model, I will use to create a lesson plan for ELL students. The key points are to clearly post, refer to, and review learning objectives and language objectives.
I believe that students also need to learn about effective communication strategies primarily in school so that they can find ways to work together with their teachers and peers to find academic success. The successful methods of communicating that is learnt in school can be carried out in communicating with others out side of school as well. Within the classroom I encourage
I would like to support this classroom in reference of two theories, Erikson and Reggio Emilia. I saw how successfully the children developed trust how they expressed their safety and security. The teachers were consistent and emotionally available. Erikson’s believed children can sense one-hundred percent trust or one-hundred percent doubt. (Erikson) Another, amazing theory that I can compare this classroom and teachers, their practice and professionalism, children are motivated to learn on what they are interested on, the teacher nurtures that ability so that the children grow and learn.
