Deliver the literacy skills lesson you developed with your mentor teacher in “Clinical Field Experience A” to the group of students for whom it was designed. During instruction, informally assess the students, identifying those who are grasping the information and those who would benefit from additional intervention.

Collaborate with the mentor teacher to develop 2-3 interventions based on your informal assessment data to support one or more students’ continued skill development. Detail at least one intervention that can be incorporated in the inclusive classroom and at least one intervention to be utilized at home. Describe the roles of teachers/family members and the student in the description of each intervention.

Part 2: Reflection

In 250-500 words, summarize and reflect upon your experiences delivering the literacy lesson, informally assessing the students, and collaborating with the teacher to develop the additional interventions. Explain the interventions you developed and how you expect them to meet the needs of the students, incorporating their assessment results in your response. Explain how you will use your findings in your future professional practice.

Lesson Title: Building Vocabulary through Word Study

Materials: Word lists, vocabulary cards, word sorts, dictionaries

Introduction: Begin by introducing the importance of vocabulary in reading comprehension. Have students brainstorm a list of words they know and a list of words they would like to know. Have them share some of these words with the class and discuss the meanings.

Direct Instruction: Introduce a new list of vocabulary words to the class. Have students work in small groups to sort the words by category or use, using vocabulary cards or word sorts. Have them use dictionaries to find the meanings of words they are unsure of.

Guided Practice: Have students work in pairs to create sentences using the new vocabulary words. Have them share their sentences with the class and discuss any difficulties they had using the words in context.
