alone. This gives them the means to show their skills and helps to motivate and engage them in classroom activities. Making use of close reading and text dependent questioning really digs deep for students, the become engaged by desire and strongly motivated to contribute and work with peers. The students no longer have to be called on because they are eager to get their response out. Students level of comprehension and analysis has increased and this a an issue that has been seen frequently in literacy assessments. Goals My goal for helping achieve a higher level of technology in the class is to create more small group activities that are technology based. One example is to have a topic assigned and specific parts for each person depending on their skill levels. The group as individuals will do their own assigned part first and then work together to put their findings into something like a digital story or a presentation etc. As time goes on and the students are more independent with technology, they will be assigned more technology based activities as individuals . “Technology also gives us the power to do things we’ve never been able to do before, like work in real time with experts and peers across the globe, express our knowledge in a wide range of media, and disseminate our ideas to far-flung, authentic audiences.” (ISTE Standards and Common. 2016). My goal for utilizing more close reading and text dependent questioning sessions is to create my top two groups of three struggling students who are on the same skill level and implement the same activity with both groups at separate times using a modified version of an action research study. I will use the data from this study to inform myself and administration of the progress made with each group.
