2Introductions Poll the Audience: Who are our guests this afternoon? Small Group Brainstorm:Share one idea that you think motivates your students.
3Research BaseMultiple Intelligences: New Horizons in Theory and Practiceby Howard GardnerMultiple Methods (Strategies)IRA Position StatementBest Practices: Today’s Standards for Teaching America’s Schoolsby Zemelman, Daniels, & Hyde
5IRA Position Statement (2007) “We believe that there is no single method or single combination of methods that can successfully teach all children to read. As a result, teachers must be familiar with a wide range of instructional methods and have strong knowledge of the children in their classrooms in order to provide the most appropriate instruction for all learners (IRA, 2007).”

8Intrinsic Motivation Activities Progressive StorytellingStorytelling videotape:Dr. Marilyn IzzardStory Impressions(see next slide)
12Librarians UnleashedCollect a large basket of books (from SSR or the library return basket)Have students sort the books based on 5 categories they create. Ex: Books that Make me LaughPlace the books in baskets with their new labels and let students read and explore by creative topics.
133 Piece KitsCreate literacy kits using examples from a variety of texts on the same content/subject area:Narrative text (fiction)Expository text (non-fiction)PoetryKits can be used for small discussion groups, for SSR, or for take home reading
14Self-efficacy Activities: Surveys to Measure Motivation READERS:Assessing motivation to readGambrell, Linda B; Palmer, Barbara Martin; Codling, Rose Marie; Mazzoni, Susan.The Reading Teacher; Apr 1996; 49, 7; Research Libraryp. 518EMERGING or NONREADERS:Garfield Elementary Reading Attitude SurveyShanklin, Nancy, & Rhodes, Lynn K.Windows into Literacy: Assessing all Learners k-8, 1993.
15Self-efficacy Activities Value of Reading BuddiesIndependent Reading: DEAR and SSR (model by teacher & choice of reading material)Five Finger Strategy or Thumbs-UpSample from Clockwork Orange
16Collaboration Activities Click or Clunk: variation of partner readingGenre Gurus: variation of literature circles (Edmunds & Bauserman, Reading Teacher, Feb. 06)Reader’s Theatre:Aaron Shepherd’s website:Tips on scriptingTips on readingPoetry Theatre
17Click or ClunkStudents pair up and take turns reading an assigned text to each other.After each section of reading, they say “click” if they understand what was read and “clunk” if they don’t.Any “clunks” need to be discussed and clarified before moving on to a new passage.
18Genre GurusStudents participate in discussion groups based on genre not book, Ex: 5 students have read different fairy talesHow did each book fit into the genre?How are the books alike?How are the books different?What did we learn about fairytales by reading these books?Students can create a visual/poster or presentation to share
19Mastery Goal PursuitCubing (for narrative text with expository text variation)50 Literacy Strategies: Step-by-step, by Gail Tompkins, Prentice Hall 2008Story Grammar for narrative text, Ex: The True Story of the Three Little PigsExpository text: focus on text structures, Ex: The Statue of Liberty
20Mastery Goal Pursuit KABLOOIE (variation of BANG), Using the 5 pillars of reading:Phonemic awarenessPhonicsFluencyVocabularyComprehension
21Concluding Thought:“The greatest gift we can give our students is the love of reading.”K. Bauserman, 2008
