Decoding Strategies
How does the explicit teaching of 8 decoding strategies help students to progress 1.5-2 years in reading as measured by the DRA?

Focal Students
Cate - Entered first grade on grade level at a Level 4 on the DRA. By winter she was reading at a Level 10. By March she was at a level 16. Currently reading above grade level.

Emily - Entered first grade reading far below grade level at a Level 1 on the DRA. By winter she was reading at a Level 3. By March, Emily was at Level 12. Emily is currently reading at grade level.

Data Collected
Student interviews
DRA Test Analysis
Key Takeaways for Other Teachers
Focusing narrowly on specific decoding strategies seemed to help all my students, especially my ELL students.
Learning Goals
Indicators of Success
DRA Tests given 4 tmes per year
DIBELS monitoring
Leveled Reading Groups Observations
Student Reflection

Challenges Faced

Key Learnings

Students will make 1.5 - 2 years of growth in reading as measured by the DRA.
