REA 550 Grand Canyon University Literate Environment Plan

Literate Environment Plan

When a school has a literate environment plan, how teaching and learning literacy occurs are naturally a part of the plan. Teachers’ lessons include engaging instruction, appropriate assessments, multiple literacies, and a positive physical learning space when an effective environment plan exists that benefits all students.

You have been invited to a second interview for a position as the new reading/literacy specialist at your school. As part of the interview process, you are asked to present the beginning of a literate environment plan to the administration.

Write a 500-750 word literate environment plan that includes:

  • The mission and vision of the literate environment plan specific to the school population.
  • The roles and responsibilities of the stakeholders (students, parents, teachers, administrators, etc.).
  • How you will advocate to extend ideas of schoolwide literacy-rich environments to the school district.
  • A brief explanation of the process for literacy implementation and evaluation.
  • How the literacy environment effects collaboration and positively influences a safe, low risk social environment.
  • How literacy environments can contribute to differentiation and meet the needs of diverse students with compassion and care.
