Partnering for Literacy

Authors: Lisa Griner

Faculty Supervisor: Jessica Morris, Ed.D.

Community Partner: Boys & Girls Club of Southeast Georgia

Abstract:

I volunteered at the Boys and Girls Club with a first-grade student in an after school setting to support her cognitive, linguistic, sociocultural and motivational needs as a reader and writer. These needs were met using a variety of research theories suggested by Jean Piaget, B.F. Skinner, Lev Vygotsky and Abraham Maslow. I also used many high-level researched based instructional strategies which included Hattie’s (2012) visible learning strategies, Ralabate’s (2016) Universal Design for Learning, and many strategies derived from Fountas and Pinnell (2016) like Reader’s Notebook, modeled and shared writing, echo and re-readings along with a balanced literacy approach to increase fluency and comprehension in a compacted amount of time.
