  10. Best Practices in Literacy Instruction

    The ability to read and write is empowering; it is the way students access content in every academic subject and is essential to many life activities.
    Readers must be able to accurately read text with automaticity, make sense of the words, connect the meaning with prior knowledge, and use strategies to monitor and repair comprehension. To become successful readers, most children require systematic and explicit instruction in the five essential components: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.

    Writers must be able to plan for a specific audience and purpose, organize and develp ideas, construct effective sentences, and apply conventions of spelling, grammar, and punctuation. To become accomplished writers, students need direct instruction in writing, constructive feedback, and daily opportunities to write for a variety of purposes.
