Select a grade level. You are preparing a workshop for parents that focuses on literacy and the Common Core standards for your selected grade level.
Create a PowerPoint presentation of no less than 10-15 slides that explains what literacy will look like in your classroom, keeping in mind the instructional shifts.
Within the presentation, describe how parents can support your literacy efforts for their child at home. These activities can be games, strategies, suggested books, etc.
Use detailed slide notes to support the information in each slide. Be sure to include title and reference slides.
While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation 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. This is the assignment that needs revised.
2nd assignment Use the following scenario from The IRIS Center to complete the tasks below:
Jacob is an active boy in the 4th grade who enjoys coming to school and participates in sports after school. Jacob does well in most classes but has difficulty with new vocabulary words. This difficulty with new vocabulary is not only seen during reading class but also during content area classes such as science and social studies. Jacob’s mother indicated that he has always had difficulty understanding new vocabulary but that it has not affected his comprehension until this year. Jacob is willing to adopt new strategies that will assist him in learning and remembering new vocabulary words and to help him better understand the story as a whole. Jacob and his teacher developed the following goal for him:
- Given vocabulary words, Jacob will define and use each in a sentence.
Paulsen, K., & the IRIS Center.(2004).Comprehension & vocabulary: Grades 3–5.
Research three strategies regarding vocabulary instruction that will assist Jacob in reaching his goal.
In 500-750 words, identify and explain how each strategy could assist Jacob in reaching his goal. In addition, discuss how you would involve Jacob’s parents, and develop an activity from one of these three strategies that Jacob’s parents can use at home.
Include three sources from your research in your essay to support your position.
I am late with both of these assignments, so I rally need them asap. My powerpoint needs to be revised and reworded, it will be attached.
