2 Creating a Literacy Environment I believe literacy instruction is one of the crucial pieces to a student’s academic success in the classroom. As students enter school, they are at different developmental levels in their understanding of literacy concepts. The role of the teacher is to facilitate instruction resulting in literacy success for all students. The purpose of this paper is to look deeper into the Literacy Framework and relate it to this week’s media videos, give examples of the application of the frameworks in my classroom, and describe the areas stated in context I would like to develop an understanding better and grow towards becoming expertise. In one of this week’s media video Deve lopmental word knowledge (2014g), Dr. Donald Bear discusses the five stages of developmental word knowledge through spelling and its relationship with orthographic knowledge. Orthographic knowledge is the knowledge of words and how they work (Laureate Education, 2014g). To assess students’ orthographic knowledge developmental spelling inventories are administered. Spelling inventories identify orthographic features such as the following: consonants, vowels, inflected endings, syllable junctures, affixes, and Greek and Latin elements. Students are given a spelling a list of 25–35 intentionally selected words. The spelling inventory is scored to determine the student’s stage of developmental word knowledge (Bear, D., Invernizzi, M., Templeton, D., & Johnston, F., 2016).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
