Online: Real Time Webinar
We invite school leaders and district wide decision makers to join us for a 1-hour fireside chat with Irene Fountas and Cindy Downend from the Center for Reading Recovery & Literacy Collaborative. Irene and Cindy will facilitate the discussion to help you think about building a coherent approach to high-quality literacy instruction across the grade levels in your school or district.
Learn the importance of building internal capacity within the school by developing coach or teacher leader expertise in literacy teaching and learning through the Literacy Collaborative. Irene and Cindy will also share the impact of this research-based literacy improvement model and explain the training process for coaches and teacher leaders.
If you are a coach, teacher leader, principal or other administrator, you may not fully realize how your language impacts each educator in your school community.
Observational assessment, in the form of a benchmark reading conference, is a good way to begin the journey of teaching literacy in the new school year.
Have you considered the many benefits of using songs, nursery rhymes, and poetry in your classroom? Here are some recommendations as you get started.
