Essential Elements

Students will develop a PPT that will demonstrate substantive understanding of the six components of reading as a process: Oral Language, Phonological Awareness, Phonics, Fluency, Vocabulary, and Comprehension.

The Essential Elements of Reading Instruction PPT will include an overview of EACH of the six components of reading including:

  1. Definition of EACH component: (Minimum 1 paragraph/ 1 slide)
    • Define the component in your own words as if you are explaining it to a parent. (Do not copy and paste from your source)
  2. Assessments for EACH component: (3 separate slides, 1 paragraph for each assessment)
    • Identify at least 3 assessments, or which 1 must be formal and 1 must be informal
    • Provide the name for your assessment and the type (formal or informal)
    • Provide a brief description of your assessment (How do you do the assessment, how do you score, how can you monitor progress?)
  3. Evidence-based strategies for EACH componenet: (3 separate slides, 1 paragraph for each strategy)
    • Identify at least 3 evidence-based strategies that are specifically for the selected component. (e.g., “guided practice”, “eye-contact”, “repetition” are not specific strategies for any Essential Element)
    • Briefly describe the strategies (do not just list them)
    • Explain how the strategy can be extended for home learning
  4. Credible Resources
    • Use at least 5 related websites and/or resources
    • At least 3 must be from different sources
    • Provide a bibliography with all works cited
  5. Grammar, Mechanics, & PowerPoint Etiquette
    • Check for grammar and punctuation (You’d be surprised how many students still begin their sentences with a lowercase letter)
    • Keep the font size and style consistent throughout each slide
    • Do not copy and paste from another source (If you copy and paste, you will not receive a grade for that portion of the project and will result in a deduction of points from your overall score.
  6. Also attach a word document worth 15- 20 mins in length about each slide but DO NOT repeat what’s on the slide.
