ECS-575 RS-T2 Literacy Discussion and Reflection

Part 1: Literacy Instruction Observation and Mentor Discussion

Observe and analyze the implementation of literacy instruction in your mentor teacher’s classroom, recording your observations of instruction in phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension using the “Literacy Instruction Observation ” template.

Following your observation, discuss the implemented lesson with your mentor. Discuss the following:

  • Literacy goals/objectives of the lesson
  • Literacy instructional strategies and learning activities that occurred during the lesson
  • Assessment/progress monitoring used to determine if the literacy goals/objectives of the lesson were achieved
  • Scaffolding of literacy skills in this lesson and future lessons, and how this meets the needs of students with and without exceptionalities
  • Use any remaining field experience hours to assist the mentor teacher in providing instruction and support to the class.

Part 2: Reflection

  • Write a 150-250 word reflection on your mentor discussion of the observed lesson. Include how you will apply this to your future professional practice.
  • APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
