Ideas @ Work
Ideas @ Work is a Web-based space for educators to share ideas about work that promotes CIERA's efforts to improve early reading acquisition. In this section of CIERA's Web site, you will ultimately find lesson plans, a collaborative workspace, and project concepts that help our constituents to understand how other teachers and teacher educators are translating CIERA's research findings into action.
Dr. Nell Duke challenged her students in Michigan State University course TE402 to consider CIERA's10 Principles when analyzing classroom practices. After observing field placement classrooms, her students were asked to describe activities that they believe represent the 10 Principles. Nell Duke has allowed CIERA to post her lesson plan, sample writing, and student samples from this assignment.
