The Best Replacement for a 3-Ring Binder

Physical 3-ring binders used to be the easiest way to organize all your educational resources. But now so much of what you want to organize is online. LiveBinders not only replaces the old 3-ring binder, but also opens up new opportunities for collaborating, organizing, and sharing that were never possible before. Here are just a few of the potential uses for LiveBinders:

Explicit and systematic comprehension strategies that do not require specialized programs and materials include:
  • The Comprehension Instructional Sequence is a research-based sequence of instruction that supports deeper engagement with complex, grade level texts. Students will deeply process and comprehend a literary or informational text through reading and rereading, generating questions and answers based on the text, and participating in extended text discussions.
  • The Adolescent Toolkit: Content Area Literacy Guide. The Guide is a free resource posted in the BEEP Teacher Portal that provides concrete literacy strategies for supporting all students as they progress from “learning to read” to “reading to learn.” The guide includes a collection of strategies that support students’ literacy development and understanding of content.

Instructional Focus Calendars (IFCs)/ Pacing Guides
page4image13224
page4image13224

Pacing for Edge B and Edge C:
  • Edge B and C and should be completed in sequence, at a brisk and engaging instructional pace, providing time for differentiated instruction and reteaching to mastery.
  • Teachers have been allotted two weeks on the IFC for each cluster in each unit of Edge. (In some cases a cluster can be completed in about 8 or so days, allowing for additional time for novel/genre study and literature circles, project based learning, and differentiated instruction for reteaching, remediation and enrichment.
  • The Edge curriculum is recursive and sequential, and each of the 7 units focuses on a different set of reading strategies and genres, both informational and literary. If teachers pace instruction to complete one unit every 5-6 weeks, teachers will complete 6 to 7 units in Edge by the end of the year.
  • Teachers should not try to include every supplemental activity offered in the Edge Teacher’s Guide. Teachers must make instructional decisions based on data to best meet the needs of students.
  • Students should spend the majority of their instructional time engaged in scaffolded support for close reading and rereading of the texts. Teachers should use explicit instruction through the gradual release model when facilitating pre and post reading strategies to help students build independence as readers and learners.
    Pacing for Vocabulary Through Morphemes:
    • Begin Part One approximately 3-4 weeks into the school year allowing time to establish instructional routines and/or to complete Unit 1 in Edge.
    • All lessons should be completed in sequence. Students will complete about 2-3 lessons per week. The first lesson in each new sequence of

page5image2480
page5image2480


instruction will take about 20 minutes to provide for initial explicit instruction and modeling. Subsequent lessons during the week should take about 10-15 minutes.
  • Begin by teaching only one lesson each day. Eventually, as the routine is learned, some students could master two or possibly three lessons a day to accelerate and if additional time is allocated for instruction.
  • Provide the practice page the next day, or as homework on the same day.
  • Occasionally, apply skills with the suggested games and activities.
  • Weekly, model the Outside-In Strategy with content area reading.
    Alternate Instruction to Prepare Students For Complex Grade Level Text like they will encounter on the FCAT:
  • The cluster 3 sequence of instruction in each unit of Edge may be skipped if all students have achieved mastery of the unit content tin cluster 1 and 2 as evidenced by the cluster tests.
  • Teachers may substitute Cluster 3 instruction for the Comprehension Instructional Sequence using complex grade level texts such as those identified in the Text Exemplars of the Common Core State Standards and released FCAT tests.
  • Teachers should see their reading coach for guidance on the resources for this sequence of instruction. The resources are under development by Secondary Reading department in the District Curriculum department and will eventually be posted to BEEP Learning Village portal.

page6image10312
page6image10312

Tier III – Instructional Resources/ Interventions (RtI)
If students are not progressing even when curriculum and instruction is implemented with fidelity, the student may need to be referred to the Collaborative Problem Solving Team (CPST) to analyze data and determine why the Tier II interventions are not working.
The Secondary Struggling Reader Chart provided recommendations for remediating deficits in all areas of reading. See Tier II Interventions for examples of these interventions.
Tier III students may need additional interventions or modifications such as:
  • More explicit and systematic instruction
  • Additional instruction through extended learning opportunities
  • Push-in or pull out tutoring
  • A change in the focus, format, frequency and/or size of the
    instructional group to meet the student’s needs.
  • More frequent and ongoing monitoring of interventions and
    modifications as needed.
page6image20920
page6image20920



Enrichment/ Acceleration
  • High school students must not just meet FL DOE high school graduation requirements, but they must be meet high standards for career and college readiness.
  • Students placed in intensive reading intervention should be given the same opportunities for enrichment, project-based learning, and participation in literature circles/genre study, and other learning opportunities as all students.
  • Using a rotational model for differentiated instruction, teachers can provide small group targeted interventions and reteaching, can conduct informal fluency checks, engage in “Clipboard Cruising” meeting with individual students and small groups for brief conferences and status/progress checks as students complete guided and independent work, give students opportunities to work collaboratively (in small groups or pairs) on projects and project- based learning, in literature circles, read at the student’s independent reading level for information and pleasure, and engage in other strategic literacy learning activities to meet varying levels of need.

  • Ongoing professional development is provided to coaches, teachers, administrators, district and school support staff by the Secondary Reading department. A calendar of face-to-face workshops is published each semester and during the summer of workshops for reading endorsement, reading strategies, and program-specific (REWARDS and Edge) instruction.
  • Resources for self-paced and collaborative study are posted in BEEP, in CAB conferences, on Wikis, in Blackboard and other resources.
  • Reading Coaches provide modeling, support, and co-planning and co- teaching of lessons to support teachers at their schools.
  • It is highly recommended that teachers teaching Edge co-plan and share resources, engage in Lesson Study with one another, and support and learn from Model Classrooms at their schools.

include an LCD projector, a document camera, an interactive white board, audio enhancement system, and student responders.
  • Each unit in the Edge curriculum is based on an Essential Question for engaging students in authentic real-world inquiry. Project-based learning is built into the Edge curriculum in each unit around those essential questions and many of the projects incorporate the use of digital tools and strategies.
  • The district’s Global Learning Initiative through Digital Education for Students (GLIDES) is an opportunity for students to using digital tools and strategies in developing authentic, real world projects that answer and respond to meaningful essential questions.

page8image10168
page8image10168

Classroom Library Resources
  • All intensive reading classrooms should include a classroom library of literary fiction, non-fiction/informational texts, magazines, newspapers, multimedia and audio books, and other resources that should appeal to adolescents of varying interests and reading skill levels.
  • The Media Specialist works closely with the reading teachers to create rich “text sets” of books and multimedia resources around a specific theme or topic of research/inquiry.
  • Literature circles, group and independent reading are an integral component of reading interventions for struggling adolescents.
  • Literary fiction and informational texts were included in the Edge adoption for all schools.
  • During the transition from the NGSSS to the Common Core State Standards beginning with the 2011-2012 school year, there will be a greater focus on supporting instruction for students to gain increasing independence with complex, literary and informational grade level texts. This has been incorporated into the Edge Curriculum through the option of using the Comprehension Instructional Sequence in place of the Edge Cluster 3 instruction.

  • Do not expect 100% student mastery of each lesson. Keep the pace
    lively; provide an understanding of the foundation morphological concept, and move on. Provide differentiated instruction for students who are struggling, as needed.
    Pre-and Post- Tests: Use the final assessment in each part of the Blackline Masters Practice Pages:
    • Unit 1: Suffix Study - Morphology Math (Final Suffix Review)
      p 49.
    • Unit 2: Prefix Study – Final Prefix Review, p. 79

Data Analysis/Data Chats (Teachers and Students)
page10image7536
page10image7536

Using Data to Inform Instruction:
  • Teachers should record all data for progress monitoring.
  • Students should record and chart their own data for personal progress monitoring and as an incentive for success.
  • Teachers must prepare carefully for each lesson, model the skills and strategies explicitly and directly, using the gradual release model of I Do, We Do, and You Do, and provide immediate and effective feedback and correction of errors.
    Informal Teacher Checklists:
  • Teachers should keep an informal student checklist to record behaviors that demonstrate that students are progressing.
  • For example, indicators for student progress include students showing interest in words, student’s use of targeted words in small and whole class discussion and writing, use of word strategies to figure out unknown words encountered in reading texts across all content areas, generating and answering one’s own inquiry questions, showing interest in class discussions and activities, writing to the text, and writing more extensive and reflective responses.
  • Teachers should keep a “Status of the Class” checklist of student’s literacy activities (independent reading – titles, page numbers, notes from student-teacher conferences during “Clipboard Cruising”) as well as progress on writing and project-based learning.
    Motivation and Engagement of Students through Student Data Chats
  • Data chats with students help establish a positive climate that makes
    each student feel safe to take risks.
  • Teachers need to provide just enough scaffolding for students to be
    successful while gradually withdrawing support so students build
    independence as learners.
  • In data chats with students, students will be more motivated if they
    know exactly what their data is and means, and the relevance and importance of this data in the short and long term.
