Transcript of An Effective Literate Environment

How do you gain valuable information on literacy learners? Answer:

First, you must get to know each child on a personal level and have an awareness of their identity (Laureate Education, 2010a). You also need to use a variety of different assessments that provide valuable information about cognitive and noncognitive aspects of individual literacy development. Laureate Education, Inc.

(Laureate Education, 2010b). Informational Linguistic Semiotic An Effective Literate Environment

By Kaleigh LaBarge What is the interactive perspective and what does it allow the learner to do? Answer:

The interactive perspective deals with reading and writing accurately, fluently, and with comprehension. In a literate environment, learners are strategic and metacognitive readers and writers (Laureate Education, 2010c). What is the critical perspective and what does it allow the learner to do? Answer:

The critical perspective allows the learner to judge, evaluate, and think critically about the text (Laureate Education, 2010c). What is the response perspective and what does it allow the learner to do? Answer:

The response perspective allows the reader to read, react, and respond to the text in a variety of meaningful ways (Laureate Education, 2010c). How is this shown in my classroom? Through gathering background information, observation, and obtaining data from assessments, I am able to address the literacy needs of all individuals. I am able to obtain valuable information regarding their ability levels and their likes/dislikes. With the information gathered, I can then provide effective literacy instruction that makes reading and writing enjoyable experiences. When selecting texts, I provide a variety of different books on the bookshelf. The books are based on the interests of the students and are rotated frequently. As a preschool teacher, many of the books are semiotic and the story is told through the pictures. However, I have a variety of books ranging from narative to informational. I think that it is very important to introduce informational texts to young readers. How do I incorporate
the three perspectives in my literacy instruction? Answer:

Through literacy instruction, I provide students with all three perspectives of literacy: interactive, critical, and response. I think that it is important for students to be able to make comments regarding the text and make connections to their personal experiences in relation to the text. As a preschool teacher, I am also promoting student response about a story being read and I also ask students to tell me how they felt when listening to the story. Recently, I have begun addressing the critical perspective. As a group, we will read two stories and discuss the similarities and differences of the stories and why they think the stories are different. Laureate Education, Inc. (Executive Producer).

learning [DVD]. The beginning reader, pre k-3. Baltimore, MD: Author. Conclusion:
As a striving effective teacher, it is important to continue gaining information to provide a literacy enriched environment for my students. An effective literacy environment is one where the teacher is able to use a variety of instructional strategies to meet the needs of all individuals. With background information and knowing each student on a personal level, I am able to develop literacy lesson plans that students are able to learn and continue expanding on their reading and writing skills.
