Engaging All Readers and Writers Through Shared Reading and Shared Writing, Grades 2-5

November 28, 2018 - 09:00 AM

∞ seats available

Students enter our classrooms eager to learn with a desire to grow as readers and writers. Shared Reading and Writing, when effectively implemented within a balanced approach to literacy, are powerful instructional strategies designed to grow proficient readers and writers.

Shared Reading and Writing offer rich, instructional learning opportunities as teachers and students actively engage in the text and consider how to respond to the text in writing. Both strategies involve the teacher intentionally encouraging and supporting students as they construct meaning from the text.

Participants will identify how to intentionally plan the Shared Reading and Writing experience in order to target specific skills such as decoding, building comprehension, making inferences, concepts of print, sentence building, etc. Also, participants will have the opportunity to collaborate as they plan all phases (before, during, and after) of a Shared Reading and Shared Writing lesson.

Target Audience:  Grades 2-5 ELA and Reading teachers, co-teachers, ESL teachers, intervention specialists, instructional coaches, administrators.

This session is full.  If you would like to register for the waiting list, please click on the link below:
