This year PES (Pt England School) has a school wide inquiry focus on formative practice in reading/writing to improve students achievement.
After meeting with Juanita Garden (AP at Pt England School) to discuss the challenges for my learners in reading and writing I decided to focus my inquiry on how to scaffold vocabulary development and word decoding skills for struggling reader? I choose this focus because I had noticed that my learners often struggle with the same word multiple times in and across text as well as struggling to decode unknown or tricky words.
Below is a presentation that outline the problem of my learners, my inquiry focus and the first steps I will take in my inquiry.
This is an exciting learning experience for me and if you have any advice I would love to hear it so please leave a comment.
