Instructional and Literacy Strategies

Here are a few different strategies that teachers can use to help students improve their writing and reading retention skills:

  • T.H.I.E.V.E.S.  A pre-reading strategy designed to enhance comprehension and retention of information and ideas encountered during reading. This strategy supports readers in identifying important concepts, establishing a context for reading, and predicting ideas that might be in the text.
  • Carousel Brainstorm. This instructional strategy may be used to active background knowledge or check understanding; therefore, it may be a pre-reading or post reading strategy. 
  • Essay Writing Frame. A Writing Frame sets the structure of a particular text type and may be used to scaffold students’ writing. The sentence starters and rhetorical phrases common to the specific text type enable learners to focus on expressing their thoughts. Although the following is a frame for writing a comparison and contrast essay, the Essay Writing Frame may be used for other text types.
