How do you you create a school climate that supports this type of progression in Reading for Literature?
Bloom’s Taxonomy illustrates that analysis should come at the fourth level, right after comprehension and application. What this means is that students must be able to understand and describe the text before they are able to analyze its elements.
This quote is important because it shows that students need previous literacy skills to achieve future literacy skills. The problem is that some children are not succeeding in these literacy skills, but are pushed on to the next literacy level. This goes onto the topic of Common Core, which has really mixed reviews. I believe that it would be beneficial for all children to be learning the same thing nationwide, however, it does not take into account social economic factors and available resources for each state.
I believe that it is important to factor in Common Core, but also remember that each student learns differently. One student make take more time grasping a material compared to another. Although there are many arguments for Common Core, the most important thing is to ensure that your students are in a safe learning environment that benefits their future education and their future lives. Children need certain literacy skills for higher grades and for daily life. It is important to also remember to include parents’ in classroom decisions. Most parents are very involved in their child’s schoolwork and most parents are against Common Core. Having a good relationship between the parent and yourself can ensure a good line of communication and a better environment for your students.
