Guiding Questions for ch. 2 1. Evaluate the different ways to engage students in this
chapter. Which method might work best and why do you think so?
2. This chapter gives many instances of "balance" in the
classroom library collection. What does this term mean?
How might you apply this in your own future classroom?
3. What challenges do you see in the ideas of this chapter
and your ability to implement them? How might you overcome
these challenges? Pathways to Independence (Worthy, Broaddus, & Ivey, 2001) 1) How might these types of informal literacy assessments (any or all) inform a classroom teacher's instruction?
2) Given that many of us are future content-area teachers, how might you modify or adapt these types of assessments for your future classroom? Also, how might you draw on this informal data (if another teacher did the actual assessing) to adapt your own instruction that is related to literacy learning? [That is, even though you didn't give the test, the information it yields is still insightful into how you can support students].
