Chapter Nine: High Quality Literacy Classrooms and the use of Storybird
Teachers must understand how to design responsive teaching that is grounded in sensitive observation of their students’ learning over time.
This means that instruction is not static, but rather is finely tuned to match the continual shifts that occur in the student’s learning.
Framework to integrate instructions across reading, writing, language, and content area.
Review of what the students already know, hold brief discussion of prompts, allow student collaboration and independent work, and facilitate whole-group debriefs.
Balance of whole-group, small-group, and one-on-one instruction allows for differentiation and responsive teaching.

- Writing should progress through planning, drafting, editing and revision, and publishing.
What is Storybird?
- Clear goals and expectations for writing should be set.
Editing and Revision
A solid rough draft should be developed. Graphic organizers can support this step and should be chosen in response to the needs of the students.
Self, peer, and teacher editing can occur. The focus should be on both the writer's strengths and areas for improvement. While conventions are a common during editing, revision regarding the ideas and flow of the story should not be ignored.
Modeling should lead students into understanding how to split their story into relevant parts. Sketched visuals should be general. After storyboarding, students should have a chance to receive additional feedback.
