About the webcast Having the self-confidence, knowledge, and skill to attempt to solve a problem is a life skill that will benefit students throughout their lives. Explore teacher behaviors that encourage children to become active problem solvers in writing.
Teachers teach, demonstrate, prompt, and expect children to use the problem solving behaviors they have learned and practiced. Children become strategic in using meaning cues, language structure cues, phonemic awareness, phonics, and orthographic patterns, to solve problems they encounter as writers. As a bonus, they can be taught to transfer those same problem-solving behaviors to the challenges they may encounter in reading text.
10 teacher behaviors are identified and demonstrated through videotaped interactions with children in Reading Recovery lessons.
References are made to sections 6 and 7 in Dr. Clay’s book, Literacy Lessons Designed for Individuals, Part 2.
