The Literacy Café - 1-Day Institute - Part 2

Details

The Literacy CAFE System provides teachers with a way to maximize student understanding of the four key components of successful reading through the use of the CAFE Menu. CAFE is an acronym for Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency, and Expand Vocabulary. The CAFE Menu breaks each component—comprehension, accuracy, fluency, and expand vocabulary - into significant strategies that support each goal. Posted on the classroom wall and built throughout the year, it serves as a visual reminder of wholeclass instruction as well as individual student goals. Teachers use The CAFE System to assess, instruct, and monitor student progress. It provides tools for constructing group and individual lessons that provide just-in-time instruction, ensuring that all students reach their potential.


Objectives and Outcomes

  • establish and track the strengths and goals of each child by providing a structure for conferring;
  • organise assessment data and use it to inform instruction;
  • maximize time with students in whole-group, small-group, and one-on-one settings;
  • create flexible small groups focused on specific reading needs;
  • engage students, fostering ownership and accountability to reach goals; and
  • develop a common language to talk about reading development and proficiency.
