Literacy for All

BY Kathleen M. Farrell

Martha’s Vineyard Public Charter School

Project Description
This literacy project, which specifically helps students develop phonemic awareness, will be utilized year upon year. Each phoneme is taught individually as part of a multi-sensory approach to reading, writing and spelling. Each book has a specific purpose to reinforce the phonemes that are taught.

How will the project be evaluated (e.g. how will you gauge its success)
Success is assessed by performance on Developmental Reading Assessments which analyze student’s reading and progress throughout the year.

Benefit to the students and the school
With practice reading books which highlight individually taught phonemes students develop competency which motivates them as readers.
