Video for Literacy Learning

A great resource for inspiration and models for teaching of literacy can be found online through videos.  Two examples are below.

This classroom example shows a graphic design teacher, Shanon Caroll using an anticipation guide as part of a literacy rich lesson. She presented the strategy with energy and enthusiasm.  This exercise requires students to make valid inferences from a reading.  As this example is presented in a video format,  viewers are able to see the way that she modeled the reading part of the activity using the overhead projector.

This video shows how a job shadowing experience can reinforce the importance of literacy skills for students.  As the experience is at a newspaper, there are numerous examples of how the employees use literacy skills in their careers.  Students in the video connect with this as the experience is in a career field in which they have interest.
