Join Me on This Journey

I invite you to spend a day with me unpacking exactly what the new Common Core Reading Standards require of you and your students. Together we‚??ll create fun and engaging mini lessons that make the standards doable and help you put them into daily practice.You‚??ll see how to add rigor to your instruction while building your students‚?? stamina for thinking deeply, applying what they know, and making connections to the texts they read. If you‚??re ready for a hands-on, super-interactive day that is full of exciting ways to meet the standards and start your young learners down the road to a lifelong love of reading, don‚??t miss my seminar!

I‚??ll focus on how to teach, apply, and extend each anchor standard. I‚??ll share dozens of research-based instructional strategies for both literature and informational texts that will enable you to teach effectively and critically. And, I‚??ll put into your hands the very tools that will prepare your students to read closely, respond thoughtfully, make and support arguments with evidence, and give higher-level answers that show they dig AND think deeply‚??the way the new standards require. Remember to bring your scissors, markers, and glue stick to this learn-by-doing adventure!

Don‚??t miss this opportunity to discover empowering mini lessons that will turn implementation of the new Reading Standards into an exciting and successful experience for both you and your students!
