The student will learn to read by applying appropriate skills and strategies.

The Simple Four Student Learning Instructional Activities and Strategies
PLAN Planning means that students are engaging the topic or assignment and deciding what they want to know about the topic and /or information they need for their assignment.


Students will ask themselves such questions as:
What do I need to do?
What’s my assignment? What’s my research topic?
What are the questions I need/want to answer?
What information do I need to answer my question? What information do I need for my research topic?
What will the finished project look like?
  • Use prior and background knowledge to develop and refine a range of questions to frame the search for new understanding. (1.1.2) (1.1.3)
  • Read widely and fluently to make connections with self, the world, and previous reading. (4.1.2)
  • Seek information for personal learning in a variety of formats and genres. (4.1.4)
  • Apply digital tools to gather, evaluate, and use information by planning strategies to guide inquiry (3.a)
  • Transfer current knowledge to learning of new technologies (6.d)
  • Use prior knowledge and life experiences to construct meaning from texts. (K-3.15)
  • Understand environmental print in such forms as signs in the school, road signs, restaurant and store signs, and logos. (K-3.16)


ACT As students ACT on their plan, they must prioritize their list of possible sources of information, find those resources, engage the resources to extract the relevant information and then evaluate the information for credibility, authority, and relationship to the topic or assignment.



Students will ask themselves such questions as:


    Where can I find the information I need to answer my question or for my research topic?
    Which information source(s) will be the most helpful in answering my question? Which information source(s) will be the most helpful for my research topic?
What search strategy will work best for each information source (e.g., book, online encyclopedia, web site)?
Now that I’ve found some information what do I do with it?
How do I decide what I need from everything I’ve found?
  • Locate, organize, analyze, evaluate, synthesize, and ethically use information from a variety of sources and media. (3.b) (1.2.3)


  • Respect copyright/intellectual property rights of creators and producers and the principles of intellectual freedom. (1.3.1) (3.3.7)


  • Exemplify the parts of a book (including the front and back covers, the title, and the author’s name). (K-3.17)
