FIX-UP STRATEGIES

On each of the pages above you will find descriptions, visuals, and links to activities and templates. Each of these are intended to support the learning and use of the strategies. It is my personal intention to use these ideas in conjunction with others to model, teach, and implement the strategies within my future classroom and with my future students. Some of the activities I have used in an adapted form during a semester long literacy tutoring experience. Others I came across and have not yet used myself, but have chosen them based on a positive value I saw within them.

TEACHING BIBLE

This page is complied of tips, tricks, and quotes relating to teaching to help increase motivation, productiveness, and the effectiveness of the reader's (and my own!) teaching. The material on this page is not made up of my own words and thoughts. They are the thoughts and quotes from teachers, fellow future educators, and instructors I have had or worked with.

The Creation of this webpage...

This webpage was created as a project for Honors credit for a Teaching and Learning class focused on Literacy & Literacy Strategies within an elementary school classroom. Included content was based on the content of that course, along with my own research. I am currently a senior at Illinois State University, pursuing an Elementary Education degree with Math, Reading, Language Arts, Science and TESOL (Teaching English to Students of Other Languages) endorsements.
