10 free tools for creating infographics | Creative Bloq | Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

...The only problem is, infographics that look like they were simple to make are often anything but. Creating something beautiful and instantly understandable in Photoshop is often beyond the limits that time allows. Which is why it's occasionally useful to use a quick and dirty infographics tool to speed up the process.

Re-imagining guided reading in the 21st century - Education is My Life

Re-imagining guided reading in the 21st century - Education is My Life | Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

"Five 8-year-olds sit around a kidney-shaped table.  After their teacher gives a book introduction for the non-fiction text, “Gorillas,” previews key vocabulary words, and sets a purpose for reading, the students begin reading silently, marking a few places with sticky notes that they’ll talk about with a partner after reading.  Add in a teaching point or two and some one-on-one coaching of readers and viola – you’ve duplicated a guided reading lesson that takes place in thousands of classrooms every day.

 

While these elements of guided reading are considered best practices and while they may help students access a new text, they don’t necessarily prepare students for world they’ll inhabit in the future. To those of us in the reading world, that reality may sting. But it’s true."

Vocabulary Instructional Strategies: Marzano's 6-Step Process

Vocabulary Instructional Strategies: Marzano's 6-Step Process | Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

"Effective vocabulary instruction is a key foundation to helping students acquire a wide and diverse vocabulary. Students need both direct and indirect instruction in vocabulary and word meanings as well as multiple exposures to words. It is through multiple exposures and repetition that students begin to understand the nuances of words and how to use them when speaking and writing."
