Literacy Coaching Program Content

Fordham Literacy coaches Explain, Model, Guide Practice, and Aid the application of five essential Literacy Learning skills and their application:
  • Phonemic Awareness: Recognizing the intricate sounds of spoken language
  • Phonics Instruction: Understanding dynamic approaches toward synthetic phonics, analytic phonics, analogy-based phonics, phonics through spelling, embedded phonics, and onset-rime phonics instruction
  • Fluency: Supporting the teaching of independent silent reading, repeated and monitored oral reading, choral reading, tape-assisted reading, and partner reading
  • Vocabulary: Developing strategies such as repeated exposure to words, direct vocabulary instruction, word-learning strategies, and indirect learning through conversations and reading activities
  • Text Comprehension: Identifying comprehension using graphic/semantic organizers, using questions, facilitating active processing of text, teaching the identification of content categories, and learning to summarize and synthesize ideas using one’s own words
Our goal is to guide students to be individual readers with strong content knowledge who can comprehend and critique their readings. Learners adapt their verbal communication, both written and oral, to varied audiences and purposes and gain understanding of varied perspectives and cultures as benchmarked by the Common Core State Standards.
