Description

In this paper I explore the intersection of my scholarly activity and my responsive instruction in the context of tutoring Katy, a nine-year-old child identified as a struggling learner. By reading Katy against the literature on motivation, engagement, New Literacies, and other key dimensions of literacy, we developed an organic approach to literacy intervention in which Katy’s interest and motivation were kept in the foreground. I found the same literacy dimensions commonly addressed in structured approaches were addressed within this approach. Important implications for research and instruction within the fields of literacy education and teacher reflective practice will be discussed.
