Reading and writing strategies | reading & writing


To be successful in reading and writing, students need to be immersed in literacy. Effective teachers utilize research-based strategies that provide students with many opportunities to apply and practice their literacy skills.

Create a 10-15 slide digital presentation for your colleagues to provide them with examples of research-based instructional strategies that promote literacy development within elementary education classrooms.

Select a grade level preschool-Grade 3 and provide one research-based strategy to promote development in each of the following areas. Include an example of how each strategy could be utilized within the classroom of your chosen grade level:

  • Phonics
  • Phonemic Awareness
  • Vocabulary
  • Comprehension
  • Fluency
  • Writing
  • Listening
  • Speaking

In addition, in 200-250 words, reflect on how integrating oral communication, reading, and writing during instruction can increase learning in all content areas.

Presenter’s notes are required for each content slide. Presentation must include a title slide at the beginning, and a reference slide with documentation of resources at the end. The title slide and reference slide do not count in the total number of slides.

While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. 

This assignment uses a rubric. Review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
