Back to Six Research-Based Literacy Approaches for the Elementary Classroom (Reimagined) [PDO]
This course provides participants with six research-based components of a balanced literacy program that any elementary teacher can use to build literacy skills and increase content knowledge. Participants will learn to integrate the six research-based components into their literacy instruction. Specifically, participants will learn how to demonstrate skills students can imitate by reading aloud to them; use shared reading to teach and model strategic reading; and use guided reading to individualize and differentiate instruction, build fluency, and reinforce strategic reading in a wide range of text difficulties.
- Understand the importance of reading aloud.
- Understand how shared reading can be used in the classroom.
- Explore strategies for strengthening students’ reading skills.
- Examine strategies that can be modeled and supported.
