Description

Reading with the Writing Project: What? How? Why?

Facilitated by Jen Ochoa and Priscilla Thomas

The purpose of this Institute is to closely examine what we ask kids to read, how we ask them to read and how we ask them to respond to what they are reading. We will end the Institute week by a close examination and revising space of our own classroom practices around reading.

On Monday--What Do We Ask Students to read? We will look at What’s There and What’s Missing? In terms of the pieces we ask kids to read using the “Seven Forms of Bias in Instructional Materials” from the Sadker Foundation https://www.sadker.org/curricularbias.html

Then, in the afternoon, we will examine the use of picture books in all classrooms.

On Tuesday--We will examine our “while reading” practices. What do we ask kids to do while they are reading (annotating, answering questions, writing reading responses, etc). How do we help them hold what they’re reading in their minds and how do we ask them to process and interact with the texts and other readers.

On Wednesday--We will examine how we ask kids to respond to what they’ve read after they’re done reading. We’ll look at our use of projects and writing pieces in response to literature and we’ll also think about how we phrase prompts so that kids can answer as authentically as possible.

On Thursday--People will be asked to bring in their own reading units and engage in a deep revision based on what we’ve learned throughout the week. We’ll end with a gallery of ideas from our morning’s revision.

This workshop provides 20 hours of CTLE credit.
