ONLINE TRAINING

 

Guided Reading Series

Recommended for grades K–6.

 

  • Guided Reading #1 - Taking and Analyzing Running Records - A running record allows teachers to closely observe and record student's oral reading behavior in order to plan instruction. Participants will learn how to use standard markings to take running records, how to analyze the running record for accuracy and comprehension, and then how to identify what cueing systems students are using to plan instruction.  DETAILS
  • Guided Reading #2 - Planning the Lesson - The strengths and needs of the students in the small group determine the focus for the guided reading lesson as well as the selection of the text used for the lesson. Participants will learn how to select a lesson focus that is targeted to the group's needs, and what to consider when selecting books that support student's use of reading skills and strategies.  DETAILS
  • Guided Reading #3: The Guided Reading Lesson Structure - The structure of the guided reading lesson is designed to provide for explicit teaching and student practice throughout the lesson. Participants will learn how to structure a guided reading lesson, specific teaching points and prompts to use throughout, and observe portions of a guided reading lesson with students.  DETAILS
  • Guided Reading #4 - Changing Lesson Focus to Meet Student's Needs - The guided reading lesson has a specific structure, but in order for students to make progress the daily lesson focus needs to change. Participants will learn how to adjust learning targets throughout the week based on student’s reading behaviors during each guided reading lesson. Recordings of one guided reading group over multiple days is included to show how to adjust lesson targets based on student needs.  DETAILS
  • Guided Reading #5: Implementing Small Group Instruction in the Intermediate Grades - Intermediate readers need specific instruction to become more strategic readers, but often the small group time targets the book rather than the reader. Learn how to focus your guided reading lesson on helping your readers to be more strategic readers. Recordings of a 5th grade small group over three days is included to demonstrate how the small group lesson may change with intermediate students. DETAILS

 

Supporting Independent Practice in Reading Workshop

Supporting student’s transfer of reading skills and strategies is the goal of the balanced literacy framework. The implementation of centers, independent reading, and literature circles supports this transfer. This training will cover these three types of independence practices to help students develop the habits to read strategically and to work independently.  DETAILS
