Running Head: Literacy Framework and Literacy Framework and Instructional PlanningThe literacy framework is an important tool that can be linked to the Common Core State Standards in every state. The Common Core State Standards cover a broad range of specific standards concerning what has to be accomplished in the end. Where as, the literacy framework is more of an instructional tool in that it provides examples. Educators can determine the CCSS that will be covered and use the literacy framework to develop activities that help reach the objectives.ObservationsI observed the teacher using several areas of the literacy framework. The first literacy framework that she used was foundational perspective. For example, she used this when she pointed out the text. The teacher mentions that she intentionally talks about rhyming even when the names in the book are in alphabetical order, she wants them to focus on the rhyming not the alphabet aspect. The second is that she uses interactive perspective. I see this when she uses a diagnostic assessment before they start to read. She is having a discussion about the parts of the book to determine what they know and what they do not, she restates what is answered for those who don’t know or need reminding as there is a text at the end of the year for them on these areas. Informing InstructionThe media and the literacy framework can help inform instruction by providing me with guidelines to follow. I have looked at the standards for the state of Maine and they are very closeto what the literacy framework addresses, thus, these frameworks can help me determine developmentally appropriate areas to focus on so that I can take the broad CCS and create a lesson plan. One example is how the teacher used a diagnostic assessment in the beginning to 2

After reviewing the literacy framework, I feel confident in critical perspective and interactive perspective. I am always assessing my students to determine what their background knowledge, what they need work on and what they are advanced in so that I can challenge them. In this category, it states that “Determining ideas, issues, and problems that matter to students” (Laureate Education, 2014) and this is something I feel that I do very well in my class. I try to use activities that are ofinterest to the class as a whole, but also take into account individual interests. One area that I need more work in would be foundational perspective. I work with pre-k students right now and
