Strategic Reading and Productive Feedback

by Kylene Reed, on Apr 30, 2020 9:56:18 AM

Are you looking for professional development during this time while you are teaching from home?? Right now, I am already starting to think about what I want to tweak or change in my instruction and lessons next year to strengthen the reading-writing connection. For those of us in Texas, our STAAR testing in changing to have more of an integrated approach of testing our students' skills and understanding about what they are reading and writing. Our students need us to show them how to effectively write about what they are reading.
This workshop focuses on those needed skills to teach our students to become strategic readers and learn to read with author's eyes. Through annotation and analysis, the presenters will express the importance of the author's purpose not only in each sentence, but also every single word behind the piece that is being read. By doing this, we will create strategic readers and informed writers in our classroom. They will then give you insight into productive feedback, and what that should look like, as you guide your students through their writing pieces.

This workshop will be a great resource to start thinking about how you can begin to use these practices next year in your classroom too!
