Chapter 4 in The Literacy Teacher’s Playbook by Jennifer Serravallo is about creating an action plan. She reminds us to set SMART Goals.
Once again, I am trying to apply what I’ve leaned to the Media Center. This chapter talks about the benefits of conferring. I do not think that conferring is a common practice in the libraries. But I am going to give it a try. During library time when grade 4 groups are working on their research and designing media to share it, I will meet with each group. The purpose will be to learn about the students, establish and follow-up on goals, hold them accountable and offer guided practice with current work.
