Someone secretly hands you a crumpled up sheet of paper. Curious, you open the paper up and smooth it out to read it. It's a list of literacy practices that, if implemented, your students' literacy skills will improve by more than a year's growth. Do you throw it out? Probably not. In this workshop, participants will learn about a three-phase model of literacy instruction: surface learning, deep learning, and transfer. In each phase, there are a variety of instructional strategies which can be chosen to improve student learning by at least one year. Participants will be able to identify and discuss high-leverage strategies to support reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Additionally, participants will consider student learning and how to approach reteaching when student learning is deemed insufficient.
This workshop is based on the book, Visible Learning for Literacy: Implementing the Practices That Work Best to Accelerate Student Learning, K-12, co-authored by John Hattie, Douglas Fisher, and Nancy Frey. Participants do not need to read or purchase the book in order to attend the workshop.
ALL PARTICIPANTS WILL KNOW AND BE ABLE TO:
•Review effect size and what it means for learning
•Identify practices that do not work.
•Identify researched practices that improve student success in literacy by at least one year.
•Deliberate planning to incorporate strategies that not only work, but are appropriate choices to meet the lesson's goal.
•Evaluating impact and what can be done if student progress is insufficient.
•"Visible Learning for Literacy" by Fisher, Frey, and Hattie
•Strategies that have effect sizes at or above one year's growth
•Three phases of literacy instruction
