Classroom Excerpts

In this section, you will relate Dr. Paratore's lecture and your reading to teaching practices in classroom excerpts.

Now you will observe a parent-teacher conference in kindergarten, first grade, and second grade. In each conference, both teachers and parents share information regarding the child's literacy progress.

Video Segment.

Conferencing Classroom Excerpts

Jeanne R. Paratore.

Find this segment approximately 19 minutes and 5 seconds after the begining of the video. Watch for about 7 minutes.

After watching the classroom excerpts, consider these questions:

  • How did the teachers and parents each contribute to a more complete understanding of the child's literacy?
  • How might you have responded to Thalia's mother who said that she asks Thalia to read a book to her instead of reading a book together at home?
  • What did you learn about Cassandra from her mother's comments? How would you use this information in subsequent instruction and assessment?
  • How did William contribute to his teacher's and mother's understanding of his literacy development?
