Description

Reading with Power and Passion

Audience: 1 Lead K-2 Teacher or Administrator (attend all sessions)

This 3 session series will focus on developmentally appropriate approaches to teaching reading and foundational skills. Teachers will explore strategies for:

1. Using running records to plan for small group instruction:

Many teachers use Fountas and Pinnell, Teachers College or DRA running records to assess students' reading levels throughout the year. These are often used to report MOSL data, but not effectively used to determine specific reading goals for early readers. Skilled facilitators will guide teachers through processes for conducting miscue and comprehnsion analyses to determine exactly what a reader needs to be taught to build independence. This will allow teachers to provide targeted and differentiated instruction that will move students across levels.

2. Guided Reading Instruction:

During guided reading, the teacher provides instruction that will support her students as they develop their reading skills. Guided reading is designed to move early grade students through a gradient of text, through explicit instruction in problem solving, reading comprehension, fluency and the reading behaviors needed to move through increasingly difficult text. . Smaller groups allow teachers to focus more on the individual needs of her students and provide reading strategies that would be most beneficial to developing their literacy skills.

3. Interactive Writing:

What single teaching method can be used to support the development of phonological skills and help children attach meaning to print? How can we learn to read and write and still have fun? The answer to these questions is interactive writing. Interactive writing is a cooperative event in which teacher and children jointly compose and write text. Interactive writing can be used to demonstrate concepts about print, develop strategies, and learn how words work. It provides children with opportunities to hear sounds in words and connect those sounds with corresponding letters. Students are engaged in the encoding process of writing and the decoding process of reading, all within the same text. Interactive writing is a unique opportunity to help children see the relationship between reading and writing.

Course Requirements: Teachers will be required to bring student work samples and teacher artifacts to reflect what they have tried in their classrooms. Teachers are also required to share their learning with their administrators and school PL committee to detemine school-based PL supports throughout the year.

Participants will bring student data and formative assessments to design individual, small group and whole class instruction that address the diverse needs of their readers.
