Description

This inquiry follows my growth as a teacher and my students' growth as readers and learners. I tell this story as I strive to answer the question, "How can I best support students' success in reading while motivating them to take responsibility for completing their school work?" Through reflection and collection of student work, lesson plans, and video, I examine how my practices as a teacher, the choice of text, and students' needs affect students' success and motivation. My examination of this material has led me to a more holistic view of reading instruction and will inform my future practices as a teacher.
