Literacy strategies are the methods that learners use to help them read, write, and spell effectively. Learners with low first language literacy skills are learning literacy strategies for the first time. In effective ESL literacy programs, literacy strategies are taught and practiced explicitly.
The Process for Strategy Instruction tool is designed for instructors and is based on the information and learning outcomes provided in Stage 3: Set Learning Outcomes in Learning for LIFE: An ESL Literacy Curriculum Framework. The purpose of this tool is to help instructors provide explicit and focused strategy instruction.
This tool can be used by individual instructors or in a course guide or curriculum package designed to support instructors as they implement the curriculum.
