Assessment of Educational Progress.

that put teachers and students on the road to
success

Many Teachers Feel Under Prepared
  • Several recent NICHD supported studies and
    surveysindicate that teachers feel unprepared to
    address the individual learning needs of their
    students, and they report that they are
    particularly under prepared to provide adequate
    reading instruction.

    Evaluation and Student Achievement Quality

What is Literacy?
  • the ability to write
  • the ability to read

What do you think?

14
Reading First, NCLB
  • Reading is a complex system of deriving meaning
    from print that requires all of the following
  • The skills and knowledge to understand how
    phonemes, or speech sounds, are connected to
    print
  • The ability to decode unfamiliar words
  • The ability to read fluently
  • Sufficient background information and vocabulary
    to foster reading comprehension
  • The development of appropriate active strategies
    to construct meaning from print and
  • The development and maintenance of a motivation
    to read.

15
Strategies and Considerations
  • Your students
  • Classroom environment
  • Areas of need

    school

school before or after graduation with little
possibility of continuing learning.
45
Use Online Resources to Teach Literacy
  • All teachers are teachers of reading or literacy
    coaches. We are role models and examples we may
    be the only literate adults some students know.
  • Use the Internet to access the resources that
    will benefit you and your students.

We help teachers become better reading teachers.
