Corwin Presents: Teaching Reading Across the Day Virtual Institute

July 17 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

This full-day, interactive, online institute led by author Jennifer Serravallo is based on her new release with Corwin: Teaching Reading Across the Day. In this institute, she’ll teach nine effective, predictable, research-based lesson structures participants  can use whether teaching English language arts, science, or social studies in grades K-8. Through explanation, activities and videos, attendees will learn the pacing and structures of each lesson type, as well as high-leverage, research-based practices that are important across all lesson types such as building vocabulary and knowledge, incorporating responsiveness, making appropriate text choices, and keeping students highly engaged. Throughout, Jen will connect to the science of teaching reading—sharing key research studies and replicated findings—and also speak to the art of teaching—honoring teachers’ craft and decision-making.

Learning intentions:
During this institute, we are learning how to bring effective literacy practices into all content areas, how to build knowledge and content across the day, and how to use high-leverage lesson structures to maximize effectiveness and engagement.

Success Criteria:

I can…

1. Identify purposes for nine lesson structures (read aloud, phonics and spelling, vocabulary, focus, shared reading, close reading, guided inquiry, reader’s theater, and conversation).

2. Visualize how various lesson structures will work with the specific grade level and subject area(s) I teach.

3. Plan an engaging lesson using a provided lesson template.

4. Apply strategies to keep students engaged during lessons.

5. Demonstrate an understanding of how to incorporate vocabulary instruction and intentional knowledge building within each lesson type.

6. Make informed choices about which texts to use for which lesson structures and purposes.

7. Learn how to, when planning, anticipate ways I may respond to students during lessons, and learn how to make in-the-moment decisions to respond to students aligned to lesson objectives.

8. Cite key research findings that undergird the recommendations in the institute.
