Tableaux and Story Sequence

Action Research by Jody Staab

Introduction to Study

The purpose of this study was to determine if performing tableaux using pictures clues and without pictures clues would enhance my students' sequencing ability of their weekly reading story. Sequencing in this study is story details from beginning, middle, and end. This was a skill that I determined from looking at test questions missed by students and class participations that the class as a whole struggled with.

Future Use

I will use this research to enhance my students reading skills and look into different Fine Arts integration such as Visual Arts. I will also use this strategy in other content areas such as Science and Social Studies. I have also shared my results with my colleagues and administrators and got to share my results at a faculty meeting.
