Creating a Literate Classroom Environment.
DeGrella, Jeanne Berthelot
A literate classroom environment immerses a student in a rich, stimulating, interactive, and purposeful print and language environment which is designed to provide for success in reading, writing, listening, and speaking and the needs of individuals responsible for their own learning in a natural, non-competitive, non-threatening, risk-taking setting. According to researchers, suggestions for teachers to aid in creating a literate classroom environment include: (1) the arrangement of the physical environment; (2) the incorporation of literacy activities such as reading quality literature, sharing books, sustained silent reading, and modeled writing; and (3) procedures to meet individual student needs.
