Integration of reading development across the content areas allows students to understand the relevancy of reading and writing skills. Working with a small group of students on a content area with literacy skills as a focus will provide you the experience of noting how literacy skill levels affect students’ comprehension in all subject areas.

Allocate at least 5 hours in the field to support this field experience.

With your mentor’s approval, work with one small group of students or the whole class on the current lessons the mentor teacher is implementing. Note the students’ reading fluency and comprehension and the effect on their understanding of other content area concepts.

After your instruction, discuss with your mentor any feedback he or she might offer on your delivery. In addition, review the literacy activities you created in Topic 2 with your mentor. Select one activity to implement with a small group of students, and arrange to deliver it during your next field experience. Solicit feedback from your mentor to help you improve and finalize the activity before the implementation.

Use any remaining field experience hours to assist the mentor teacher in providing instruction and support to the class. 

Write a 250-500 reflection discussing the following:

  • Description of the small or whole group instruction including lessons you taught, the content objectives, and your implementation experience.
  • Mentor feedback on your instruction, including what you did well and what you could do better.
  • What additional instructional strategies you would use to integrate reading development into the lesson to provide comprehensive development for all readers and writers.
  • How the students’ current reading fluency and comprehension affected their understanding of the content.

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
