Who is it for? This systemic approach to classroom-based literacy instruction consists of books, classroom library collections, lessons and conferring cards, sets of minilessons, opportunities for varied talk structures, professional tools, and professional learning opportunities for teachers in PreK through grade six. This multi-text approach honors teacher decision making and the development of a community of readers and writers. Your classroom is a place where students learn how to read, write, and expand all of their language skills, but it is much more.
Oftentimes, students can impart Graphing Tool I had students graph data related to population growth in the United States.
I was able to easily go through the procedures on how to label the graph by placing it under the document camera. I also was able to take graphs from previous classes and showcase them so that students had a good idea of what I was looking for.
Using the image capture, I took pictures of them so that I have them for later.
Highlighting Tool Students are always asking "What page is that on? It has been great when discussing images and charts that are in the book, something that was much more difficult when I did not have one.
Test Review Tool I gave a test. When I was done grading the test, I was able to share the various levels of responses with the classes and obscure the name of whose test it was. Students were then able to see what I was and was not looking for in their answers.
With transparencies that was possible to do, but it was time consuming. Display Tool Every handout that I use I now easily display a copy on the board for my students to utilize.
Discussion Tool Instead of having students answer questions aloud, I have students come to the board as they are working and "write" responses to questions that they have completed and then as a class we can discuss them.
I have realized that the best aspect of a document camera is the ability to have a larger scaled view of what my students are also looking at. It makes discussing topics much easier and more beneficial in engaging my students. How have you used a document camera in your classroom?
