Seven Pillars of Effective Reading Instruction

Classroom Assessment
Is the observations that teachers use to gather information on individual student progress.
Effective reading teachers are able to quickly assess knowledge, create an individualized plan, and teach the students for what they are ready to learn.
Classroom assessment happens before, during, and after instruction.
Evidence-Based Teaching Practices
Highly effective reading programs focus on classroom management, instruction essentials, ability to design print-rich and interactive environments, and support reading with evidence-based techniques.
Classroom Management includes: classroom space for multiple uses, having supplies and arranging supplies effectively, communicating expectations and rules in a positive climate, employing effective practices, training students in routines and procedures, and establishing a daily schedule.
Teaching Instructional Essentials include: oral language development, concept of printed language, letter knowledge, sight word knowledge, phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and spelling.
Classroom Environment includes: a wide variety of books, walls to display charts, and maintain a classroom library.
Reading support includes: engaging in volume reading and writing, using technology to increase word knowledge, encourage reading/writing strategies, connect literature to other areas, and provide instruction on the essential elements.
Response to Intervention (RIT)
Encourage teachers to integrate high quality evidence-based instruction and assessment in a systematic way.
Differentiating Instruction is done to meet needs of all students and teachers use instructional strategies like small group, student-selected books, and independent practice.
Culturally Sensitive Instruction is instruction that has balanced competition, cooperation in activities, and have appropriate discussion.
Teacher Knowledge
Improved teacher knowledge is our best chance at closing the achievement gap.
Teacher classroom performance explains 15-20% of variation in student achievement.
Teachers influence student academic growth more than any other single factor.
Teachers must have researched based knowledge and effective instruction practices.
Motivation and Engagement
Is the key pillar composed of efficacy, challenge, curiosity, involvement, importance, recognition, grades, interaction, competition, compliance, and enjoyment.
Turner and Paris believe in the six C's: choice because students are more willing to be engaged, challenge because children enjoy being challenged, control to promote engagement, collaboration which results in greater understanding, constructing which is meant to implement various strategies, and consequences which are used to determine what is going to happen if goals aren't met.
Technology and New Literacies
NLS are the skills, strategies, and insights necessary to successfully exploit the rapidly changing information and communication technologies that emerge in our world
Online reading requires the development of comprehension strategies such as reading online to generate a problem or question from one's social context, reading to locate information online, reading to critically evaluate information online, reading to synthesize information online from multiple sources, and reading to communicate and exchange information online with others
Family and Community Connections
80% of student learning occurs outside of the school.
To be an effective teacher, teachers need to make an effort to reach out to parents.
Parental involvement can aid the child's development if they are educated on what to do.
