English Literacy Strategies

3 steps to become a more thoughtful reader
(works for ANY text at ANY level!)

Analyze (1st read)
Evaluate (2nd read)
Elaborate (3rd read)

Assessment Results

Reading at an Early Age
Reading skills
are a strong indicator
for academic success!
In 2012, "researchers at Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago used longitudinal administrative data to examine the relationship between third-grade reading level and educational outcomes" (chapinhall.org).

Classroom Management Foundations

"Hierarchy of Needs"

Classroom Rules vs. Teacher Expectations
Respect - yourself and your peers
Cooperate - with me and your peers
Follow - school policies
Motivation and Personality
Provide Time to Read!
NO Cellphones
NO eating
NO drinking
NO talking when teacher is talking
NO inappropriate language
NO leaving your seat without permission
Determine students' reading ability at the beginning

Private reading time

Positive feedback for students who read aloud

Question understanding of word problems & directions

Scaffold diverse abilities through guided reading practices for textbooks
Which classroom would you rather be in?
Tennessee Value Added Assessment System
Algebra 1 - Teacher Progress Estimates
Tennessee Value Added Assessment System
Algebra 1 - Teacher Diagnostic Report
from Maslow's
Building a Math Community
Take time to know names
Consider previous assessment data for grouping
Give students a choice in how they learn
Quarterly class surveys about the class
Reading Complex Texts: Highlighter Annotation
Tennessee Department of Education
Central High School

Algebra 2 - Teacher Diagnostic Report
Key Ideas and Details
read for basics

3 steps to approach word problems:
(works for ANY math course!)

Analyze (1st read/highlight)
Accumulate (2nd read/record)
Evaluate (3rd think/calculate)

Craft & Structure
Integrate Knowledge & Ideas
make judgements about
word choice
persuasive devices
Connect this text to
prior readings
prior experience

What's the ???
Identify the question's purpose
Circle 2-3 pieces of information

What's GIVEN?
Record important numerical information
Think critically through the vocabulary

Which method?
Draw a picture/diagram
Connect Prior Knowledge
Check the answer to be sensible

Math textbooks are unique in their organization
Less text, but conceptually dense with information
Students need direct instruction and modeling in how to use their textbook
Key Components of Digital Recording:
Digital Audio Workstation
Virtual Instruments (VST)
Frequency Equalizing
Low Frequency Oscillators
Low Pass/High Pass Filters
What is the name of one popular Digital Audio Workstation?
What is used to isolate sounds based on their wave frequency?
What modulation causes sounds to "Wobble"?
What effect reduces the volume of a sound to allow another sound to play at the same time?
Further Textbook strategies
Daily Questioning/Investigations to Help Students Use Their Math Textbook
2 minutes of Chapter Analysis (What seems important?)
Identify an important definition, theorem, or example problem
How do you interpret this example figure, diagram, or graph?
Ask students to discuss connections between content and pictures or diagrams.
Actively model the glossary when students ask about a word
Ask students to use the headings to determine focus points
Vocabulary Connections
