Renewing Two Seminal Literacy Practices: I-Charts and I-Search Papers
Assaf, Lori Czop; Ash, Gwynne Ellen; Saunders, Jane
Voices from the Middle, v18 n4 p31-42 May 2011
In this article, the authors describe how Jenae, a seventh-grade English language arts teacher, modified I-Charts (Hoffman, 1992; Randall, 1996) and I-Search papers (Macrorie, 1988) to support the needs of her adolescent English Language Learners (ELLs). They highlight how she improved upon two timeless instructional practices by integrating technology and scaffolding the students into the research process. They include multiple examples for middle grade teachers to use with their students and highlight key components to make these two seminal literacy practices worthy of continued use in the future. ["Renewing Two Seminal Literacy Practices: I-Charts and I-Search Papers" was written with with Joel Johnson.] (Contains 8 figures.)
