Suggested Responses: Students should describe strategies for promoting writing development in the classroom, including encouraging independent writing and invented spelling, giving journals to students, creating a writing center or a writing workshop, and using writing activities across the curriculum. Students should also describe strategies for promoting reading, such as reading to children and selecting books of increasing skill levels, encouraging both independent and guided reading, building a sight vocabulary, modeling reading strategies, and facilitating "grand conversations" about books. Students should note that teachers should be aware of cultural variations in literacy practices at home, including the ways that parents read to their children. Teachers should include a variety of reading materials in the classroom - not just storybooks - and incorporate storytelling, music, and other forms of artistic expression into the reading and writing curriculum.
