Home Activities Classroom Excerpts

Jeanne R. Paratore.

Find this segment approximately 35 minutes and 50 seconds after the begining of the video. Watch for about 6 1/2 minutes.

After watching the classroom excerpt, consider these questions:

  • How did the home activities of each student promote literacy learning?
  • What areas of language and literacy were developed with each activity?
  • How did Ms. Wilson's questions support each student as they presented to the class?
  • What information did Ms. Wilson learn about both students from their home activities? How can she use this information to plan future instruction?
