Question and answer
summarise a teachers programme and plans for literacy development
Monitoring a school literacy program is a systematic process of examining students' reading progress and teachers' instructional strategies in order to improve students' reading and writing achievement. [ Any monitoring effort has three basic components: collecting information on a regular basis, analyzing and evaluating that information, and taking action to improve student performance
(Richards, 1988). These components may be preceded by other activities, such as determining gaps in practice and articulating questions on which to focus the monitoring. Monitoring is a continuous process. When teachers monitor the school's literacy program, they keep a watchful eye on students' achievement and successes in reading and writing activities. They collect literacy-focused assessment data, including standardized tests and alternative assessments (such as samples of students' work and observations of students' reading behavior and performance). They also look beyond assessment data to children's attitudes toward reading, comments from families, and any other information that sheds light on whether the goals of the literacy program are being met. Next, they review and analyze this information to determine the value of various elements of the literacy program and how well these elements foster students' success. Finally, they make adjustments in areas that need improvement. Then the cycle of monitoring begins again. Effective monitoring practices are necessary for maintaining a quality literacy environment. "All teachers need ways to determine what students are learning and the progress they are making. This information provides the basis for making decisions, planning instructional activities and experiences, and distinguishing effective from ineffective procedures," states Cooper (1997, p. 513). ]
