        Rachel, You did a very good job with this reading response. You raise several important issues about the conflicts between what the experts say and what is happeningin the classroom.

                                Traditionally, the idea of literacy or being literate was reduced to the ability to read and write. However, with increasing technology and digital media we use literacy in a broader context. In order for our students to be career and college ready...

                                    Milani,

                                    I really enjoyed reading your response.

                                    This just jumped out at me:

                                    Personally, I believe that all four of these strategies should be utilized in the classroom. It is important for students to be able to cognitively process information from the text as well as be familiar with the jargon used depending on the content, however it is imperative that we consider the sociocultural aspects of our students and how we can implement their cultural backgrounds into literacy development. I work with students of color and I find that a lot of the material that they read is very Eurocentric and sometimes hard for students to relate to. A large part of literacy is being able to make connections from prior knowledge and being able to connect it or apply it to a text. It is important for students to make a sociocultural connection with material that they are reading and writing about. Not only does this method increase literacy in a meaningful way but it also allows for students to be included and reflected adequately in the material.

                                    Can you share some more about what you do specifically?

                                        Rachel,

                                        You have made many good points in your response.

                                        This one really stuck out for me:

                                        How do we transition to accommodate our student population? What may work in one school may not work in another, or one classroom like ELA may not work in Science. Especially in New York City where we serve a very diverse population, we need to know our students and their various disabilities in minimum five periods. Today, the way our students are learning has changed, but the method of teaching has not, so much of teachers’ time is taken by just planning that integrating strategies have become an issue.

                                        What thoughts do you have about bridging these gaps?

                                            Hi Dr. Ardito,

                                            I am still struggling to come up with an answer because this year and I am pushing with the Special Ed coordinator at my school, and we have yet to co-plan. I firmly believe co-planning genuinely and having time to do it can help bridge these gap. Because they say we suppose too but just as it is difficult to remember names, it will be to remember each IEP with everything else we have to do. But co-planning may give us an aide of what lesson strategies may work for a particular period. By doing so this way, we can be useful when co-teaching.
