Hey EDTE 500

Welcome to my blog!

On this site I will be posting about my inquiry project. The topic I chose to research is “Strategies for developing and supporting readers as they grow in a positive and enjoyable way that promotes their love of learning.”

What I am planning to learn:

  • I want to better understand how to teach reading especially to students who are struggling.
  • I want to know how to catch readers before they fall so they don’t lose confidence or the joy in reading.
  • I want to be able to know what steps need to be taken to best support the learner I am working with.
  • I also want to learn how I can best support each reader individually while still being present for the rest of the class.
  • Another area that interests me is how do you promote the love of reading to a reader who is struggling. How can the process be made enjoyable?

Where I will start locating information:

  • “Reading Power” by: Adrienne Gear
  • “Catching Readers Before They Fall” by: Pat Johnson and Katie Keier
  • “Reading Strategies Book” by: Jennifer Serravallo

First Post

Hi my name is Anna Rithaler, and I’m a little nervous about making a blog page, but let’s see how this goes. I am hoping that I will be able to share some ideas and thoughts with the members of my cohort as well as the public.

A little bit about me is that I was born and raised on Saltspring Island in beautiful British Columbia, and much of my life has been spent on or near the water. The theme I have focused on for this site is centered around the ocean because it has had such significance in my life and is one of my favourite subjects to teach.

This site will be a work in progress for a while, but I’m looking forward to trying new things!


About Me
