Today's teachers are accountable for accelerating literacy learning and achievement for learners at all stages of literacy development. This important resource gives teachers an instructional and assessment framework designed to promote the multiple competencies their learners need: functional literacy for phonics, spelling, and reading; content-area literacy for vocabulary, concept attainment, and comprehension; techological literacy for information searching, evaluation, and synthesis; and innovative literacy for creativity, growth, and life-long learning.
With a focus on research-based and differentiated strategies, noted authors Gayle Gregory and Lin Kuzmich offer teachers step-by-step guides to:
- Assessing diverse learners for literacy skills, competencies, learning styles, and learning gaps
- Implementing a broad array of strategies to move all students to the next stage in their literacy learning
- Creating lessons and activities that address all four literacy competencies in the differentiated classroom.
With more than 100 planning models, examples and checklists included, this book is the ideal resource for all primary teachers who want to close the achievement gap for emerging learners and insure the growth and development of all learners.
