I am teaching a new class for ther first time. I am also teaching the class online. Have some planning to do I am thinking this for topics:

  • Theories of Meaning Making
  • Phonics and Spelling
  • Academic Vocabulary
  • Comprehension
  • Writing instruction
  • Assessment Strategy
  • Creating a Home and Community Culture
  • Cognitive, Cultural, and Developmental Differentation
  • Teaching with nonfiction
  • Teaching with Novels
  • Teaching with Short Stories

I am not going to include a unit on new literacies but embed digital test and tools across all the units

I want to do a microcast with a real classroom teacher for each of the units

We will read two novels as a class: Bucking the Sarge and Handbook for Boys

I think I will continue with WordPress but maybe pilot Google Classroom. I may try unicyclic.com as well. Not sure

Other tasks to be defined later tonight and tommorow.
