This is an episode to listen to many times over and share with your literacy colleagues. With featured guest Dr. Anita Archer, this Literacy Talks episode covers the literacy landscape and explores the power and practicality of explicit literacy instruction. From instructional content to instructional design, effective delivery to feedback and practice, listeners will have the opportunity to understand why Dr. Archer is in demand as a speaker, writer, curriculum developer, and consultant. Hear some of her most memorable “Archer-isms” and come away inspired, informed, and energized to, as she says, “teach with passion and manage with compassion!”


Sustained thinking is where you're able to set aside time and start to think deeply. That's where we need to be in order to stretch ourselves and in order to grow. So this week we are talking about how literacy leaders are inspired with quotes. There is power in the words that make up inspirational quotes, and when we read them, we build self-efficacy in the kind of dialogue we have with ourselves. Literacy Leaders lean into quotes. We hope you will lean in with us this week.

What do we need to cover in the curriculum, and what are some effective resources we can use?Here's just a few tips:Set dedicated time for students to engage in reading and writing every dayTeachers should read aloud at least once a dayCreate multiple opportunities for students to share and discuss meanings they created from these reading and writing opportunitiesUse real books for readingAllow for student choice about what they read or writeTeachers should rove around the room, interacting with small groups or individualsHave low frequency of sustained periods of whole class, teacher-centred instructionAllow for sharing of interpretations of own and other's textsTune in to hear many more insights.This episode was recorded as part of a Literacy Leader Masterclass, which was a series of Zoom sessions over the year with a band of excited educators.  We were able to share our successes and challenges in the classroom, getting feedback on what we are doing.

You're listening to Artbeat Radio, a program of Able ARTS Work. *Music plays  (Matthew) Alright! Do it!  (Jonathon) Hello everyone and welcome to Art Beat Radio.  (Stephanie) This week's episode will be featuring students from the Music Literacy and Music Studio classes at Able Arts Work San Diego.  (Start background music)  (Liam) You may be asking yourself, ‘what is music literacy?'  (Liam) Basically, music literacy is how to read, write, and understand music.  (Claire) We start class with music appreciation.  (Santiago) We listen to a song carefully and explore the emotions it makes us feel.  (Liam) Doing music appreciation teaches us how to explore our emotions because songs can have more than one emotion.  (Jonathon) Mixing major and minor chords can give us a complex feeling like bittersweet.  (Stephanie) If you want to be literate in music, first you need to learn the musical alphabet. The musical alphabet has 7 letters.   (Sam) A, B, C, D, E, F, and G.  (Jonathon) Sometimes a note can be sharp.  (Claire) That means the note goes up.  (Stephanie) Sometimes a note can be flat.  (Santiago) That means the note goes down.  (Liam) You can take notes and put them together to make chords.  (Stephanie) Every basic chord is a triad – three notes played together.  (Stephanie) We have learned that in any key, you can make major chords, minor chords, and diminished chords.  (Santiago) Major chords can make us feel happy, calm, good, or bright.  (Claire) Minor chords can make us feel tense, dark, down, or sad.  (Jonathon) Diminished chords are even more tense than minor chords.  (Liam) After a few weeks, we used all of this knowledge to start writing our own song together.  (Stephanie) To come up with a chord progression, we started with the I chord, then experimented with other chord numbers until we came up with something that sounded good.  (Jonathon) For the verse, we wrote a chord progression that goes I to iii to vii to I.  (Liam) For the chorus we wrote a chord progression that goes V to vi to vii to ii. When the chorus repeats, we replace the ii chord with a IV chord.  (Stephanie) Next, we experimented using notes from the chord triads to write a melody. Once we had our chord progression and melody, we listened to it carefully to figure out how the music made us feel.  (Santiago) We chose one emotion to focus on with our lyrics.  (Liam) We chose to focus on heartbreak because we agreed that the music sounded bittersweet.  (Claire) Now we were ready to start writing the lyrics.   (Jonathon) We used a rhyming dictionary and a thesaurus to help us craft the lyrics.  (Santiago) To capture the bittersweet emotion of the music, we focused on the bitter in the verses, and on the sweet in the chorus.  (Stephanie) Once we had the lyrics, we started choosing the instruments we wanted for our backing track and writing those parts in Logic.  (Jonathon) Do you want to hear a preview of our song right now?  (Stephanie) Hi, my name is Stephanie J. Monis. My favorite artist is Taylor Swift because I love her music and she is a songwriter. What I want to learn in this class is I want to put my songs and projects together so I can have some finished songs.  (Sarah) Hi, my name is Sarah Shaw. My favorite recording is Demi Lovato. The thing I'm most excited about in Music Studio class is recording the song I wrote. The song I want to record from my song book is called “All Eyes On Me”.  (Kaitlyn) My name is Kaitlyn Johanson. My favorite song artists are Harry Styles “As It Was” and David Bowie “Star Man”. My favorite recording artists are Kelly Clarkson and Bentley Brown. I'm most excited to learn from studio class this semester recording my voice, reading, and singing.  (Claire Feth) My name is Claire Feth. My favorite recording artists is Celine Dion and Julie Andrews. I'm most excited to play my drums.  (Josh) (Singing and playing piano) Oh, check it out. Hug-a hug-a. Hug-a please, promise. Craig coming. Where's coming coming? Say, Craig!  (Max) Hi, my name is Max Lecanu-Fayet. My favorite recording artists are Matchbox 20 and Enrique Iglesias. The thing I am most excited to learn about in Music Studio is how to make music using the computer.    *Outro music by Artbeat Radio staff*  We hope you enjoyed this episode of Artbeat Radio.

Literacy is essential to navigating today's world. Without the ability to read, people struggle with basic tasks, such as finding a place to live, applying for a job, or seeking healthcare. With so much of our daily lives depending on reading, it may be surprising that there are such huge disparities in literacy rates. So, how can parents bridge these disparities and ensure their children have the literacy skills they need?   Writer, parent educator, and literacy advocate, Maya Payne Smart, joins Marti and Erin to discuss six "levers" parents can activate to prepare their children for reading success. She also shares examples of simple things parents can do to help their children develop foundational literacy skills. Tune in to hear her tips for helping your kids build literacy skills from birth to kindergarten.   WHAT WILL YOU DO TO HELP YOUR CHILDREN LEARN TO READ? How will you ensure your children have the literacy skills they need? What ideas do you have for how you can activate the six "levers" with your own children?   WANT TO LEARN MORE? ❉ PARENTS' ROLE IN EARLY CHILDHOOD LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT. Dr. Susan Outlaw shares practical tips for how to support your child's optimal language development in this episode of Mom Enough. She also talks about how to know if your child's language development is on track or if a professional language evaluation, and possibly extra support or early intervention, might be needed to help the child reach necessary milestones.   ❉ EARLY LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT: INTEGRATING LANGUAGE LEARNING INTO EVERYDAY LIFE. Long before children enter formal education, they are constantly learning from parents and other caring adults who interact with them through language stimulation. Before they even begin to speak, babies are making sense of language, building a vocabulary and developing conversational patterns. So, to make sure our children have this important foundation, do we need to be fluent in English, have a house full of books or know formal teaching strategies? Dr. Alisha Wackerle-Hollman shares reassuring answers to these questions and more.   ❉ PROMOTING LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT IN CHILDREN: INSIGHTS AND GUIDANCE. Language skills are essential to academic learning, positive relationships and clear thinking. Parents have a crucial role in promoting language development in children through simple, everyday interactions from infancy to adulthood, whether or not English is the primary language at home and whether or not a child is bilingual. Dr. Maria Sera shares research-based information to help you provide a solid language foundation for your child's needs.
