Improving Higher Order Literacy Skills through Reading and Writing
This project provides high-interest content area literacy activities that allow first-grade students to learn a variety of reading and writing skills. Using the skills learned, the students will research, write and illustrate their own book, participate in a video interview, and promote and sign their book at an “Author of the Day” event. The project aims to increase achievement in all areas of literacy including reading, writing, listening, speaking, critical thinking, and creative expressions. Students will engage their higher order thinking and improve speaking and listening skills through the workshops provided.
