Transcript of The Seven Pillars of Effective Reading Instruction

The Seven Pillars of Effective Reading Instruction
Observations, records and ongoing performance measures teachers use to gather information about student performance
Effective reading assessment occurs before, during and after instruction
Know the reliability and validity of measures being used
Effective class assessment is incorporated into the classroom schedule
Research suggests that a teachers knowledge and classroom performance explains 15-20% of student achievement
Teachers should be well versed with respect to content
Common Core standards exist as a means of ensuring appropriate literacy , and other content area, instruction for all students

Pillar 1: Teacher Knowledge
Pillar 2: Clinical Assessment
Pillar 3: Evidenced-Based Teaching Practices
Effective reading instruction programs focus on
Classroom management
Teaching instructional essentials
Designing print rich and interactive class environments
Supporting reading with evidence based techniques
Pillar 4: Response to Intervention (RTI)

RTI is an intervention model that increases in its intensity as the tiers progress
Differentiating instruction
Involves modification of instruction according to the academic needs of students
One easy way for teachers to begin differentiating instruction is to separate students into various small groups based on skill levels
Culturally sensitive reading instruction
Recognition of cultural diversity
Teachers should teach students how to discuss topics via modeling and dialogue routines
Pillar 5: Motivation and Engagement
Motivation has been described by some as the key pillar to effective reading instruction
Turner and Paris (1995) came up with a version of motivation as a construct refered to as the 6 Cs:
Choice-providing some choice for the student
Challenge- research indicates that children enjoy a challenging read thus providing some challenging texts encourage motivation and engagement
Control- share how texts and tasks are presented w/students to promote reading engagement
Collaboration- students work with each other and teachers to construct meaning from text
Constructing meaning- conscious selection control and use of various strategies while reading text (comprehension strategies)
Consequences-refers to the expectations stated and the resulting outcomes if expectations aren't met
Pillar 6: Technology and New Literacies
New literacy studies (NLS)- skills and strategies necessary to exploit the technologies continuously emerging in our world
Online reading comprehension can be supported by helping students learn to evaluate the accuracy and validity of informational claims found online
New literacies present a variety of opportunities for teachers to engage with students and demonstrate literacy skills, concepts, and strategies via interactive programs

Pillar 7: Family and Community Connections
Reading achievement is greatly influenced by familial involvement ( research suggests that kids who've been read to before kindergarten often have a stronger language base and are likely to succeed in reading)
As teachers in this modern age, it becomes our responsibility to reach out to families and give them the tools for effective and practical reading practices while at home
