Academic Achievement & School Leadership

Relevance

Relevance of your proposal to one or two of the five strands: Academic Achievement and Leadership – Reading literature can help us understand situations without experiencing them first-hand. Writing about literature can increase our literature comprehension. This knowledge can help us better understand persons who experienced difficulties different than our own difficulties. We can better relate to other people.

Brief Program Description

Brief Description: Come and learn how we can better understand each other through reading and writing about literature. Participants will see demonstrated and participate in integrated literature and writing lessons for all age students. They will receive references and lessons for integrating literature and writing lessons. Participants will discuss teaching literature and writing in schools.

Summary

Summary: The Exemplary Center for Reading Instruction model is approved for national dissemination through the United States Department of Education. The model is approved for at-risk students. Participants will receive “take home” materials for integrating teaching literature and writing for young children through high school. Participants will use these materials during the session. Participants will discuss how reading and writing about literature can help us better understand others who lives are different from our own.

Evidence

Evidence: The Common Core Georgia Performance Standards contain literature and writing requirements. Teachers teach these standards. The Exemplary Center for Reading Instruction integrated teaching literature and writing lessons were field tested in schools at all socio-economic levels, including high poverty, high minority schools, with other reading instruction topics. Results showed between 1 and 2 standard deviations in several investigations reviewed through the United State Department of Education, leading to approval in the first and second Reform Model catalogues, The Education Commission of the States, The Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory & National Clearinghouse for Comprehensive School Reform, the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies, and the Texas Center for Educational Research, et al.

To appreciate the magnitude of a 1 to 2 standard deviation effect, the American Education Research Association describes an effect at .25 of one standard deviation to be educationally significant. One year’s growth on commercially prepared norm referenced standardized tests used in schools equals .65 of one standard deviation.
