Ashford 5: – Week 4 – Discussion 2
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
The Alphabetic Principle
As Section 8.1 of your text states, the most important visual literacy component of learning to read is the alphabetic principle (Coats, 2013). This understanding that words consist of letters that correspond to sounds must be taught explicitly. After viewing the video The Alphabetic Principle (video transcript) and reading Chapter 8 of your text, you will discuss ways in which you can use the alphabetic principle in your teaching, and then you will conduct a book review.
According to the first letter of your last name, select a book that meets your assigned criteria below as the basis for this discussion.
Discuss ways in which we use the alphabetic principle in our classrooms or daily lives. Use the video for examples. Then, provide the title and author of the book, and give a brief overview of what the book is about. For your book review, discuss how the book meets your assigned criteria and how it specifically addresses that skill. Identify ways you can use the book in your classroom to reinforce your assigned criteria.
Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts, and respond to at least two classmates who had a different criterion from your own. Discuss the possible implications of not using the alphabetic principle while teaching students to read. How might not having a strong foundation in the alphabetic principle impact student achievement?
