Key Strategies Continued


Digital Publishing
Students spend more time on their writing when they
know their work will be displayed on a website or
presentation
Blogs and Wikis
When students work become a dynamic site for
conversation, students become more engaged
Concept Mapping
Helps students create visual outlines to plan what they
want to write about

Key Strategies
Digital Text
Interactive storybooks or eBooks scaffold students initial
reading skills and draw them into reading activities.
Word Processors and Handheld devices
Helps students with pronunciation and students who are
having trouble reading
Modeling literacy analysis with whiteboards
Work become more engaging when students interact
with the text in a visual hands on environment

Rationale
This is an interactive approach to learning the core subjects. It allows
the students to experience what may not be normally done in the
classroom. The students have access to many tools that support to
enhance their learning and technological skills.
