Skills and Record Keeping
The Writing and Reading Process video series is designed for inservice and preservice teacher education programs, courses, and workshops in colleges, universities, school districts, and educational resource centers. The first section, A New Approach to Literacy, shows key elements of the process approach to writing and reading. The second section, A Closer Look, is hosted by Donald Graves and documents writing and reading instruction methods in actual elementary school classrooms. Part of A Closer Look, Skills and Record Keeping includes examples of skills instruction as they occur in classrooms. Minilessons, a spelling program, phonics, and reading comprehension instruction are demonstrated. A section on record- keeping principles that are applicable for all elementary grade levels is included at the end of the tape. To learn more about Donald Graves, visit www.donaldgraves.org.
