Vocabulary words and concepts from the RICA preparation guide by Chee

3 popular reading/language-arts instructional approaches 1) the basal reader approach, 2) the literature-based approach, and 3) the whole language-based approach
Characteristics of the Basal Reader Approach Uses student reader which is made up of a combo of excerpts of authentic, classic literature, and adapted texts. Highly to moderately Scripted. Open Court is an example. Uses student workbook. Has end of the chapter or unit assessments.
Characteristics of the Literature-Based Approach Response logs, end-of-book summaries, extension projects, Readers' Theatre, and teacher-constructed assessment tools are used to assess background knowledge and abilities. Based on teacher initiative. Small reading-response groups are guided by teacher.
Characteristics of the Whole-Language Approach Teacher creates interdisciplinary unit and generates own instructional goals, objectives, and assessments. Children work on projects & generate authentic questions to research. Literary skills are taught using authentic content topics chosen by students.
