Functional means designed to have practical use and used to development of a larger whole. Is your literacy instruction hitting these two things? In this episode, we discuss what functional actually means. Functional doesn’t mean vocational or having low expectations. Learn how to teach academics in a functional way at all ages. We live in a text rich environment and we need to be teaching literacy at every age in some way. Use the text you see every day as a teaching tool to work on generalizing and applying the literacy skills you teach. Consider students’ learning history, strengths, interests, and long term opportunities when selecting literacy goals. My call to action: evaluate you literacy instruction today.
