4. Moving Forward with Comprehension: Digging Deeper into the Comprehension Focus (Target Audience: 3–5/6)

Each Literacy Footprints Guided Reading lesson has a comprehension focus that threads through the lesson framework. In Chapter 7 of Jan Richardson’s The Next Step Forward in Guided Reading, 12 comprehension focuses are introduced across 29 teaching modules. In this workshop, participants will take part in a mini-book study while exploring each comprehension focus through the Literacy Footprints lessons. They will learn how to use the progressive steps to differentiate the support provided to students during guided reading lessons. They will leave with a strong understanding of how to lead students toward internalizing the comprehension focus to reach the goal of constructing meaning while reading any given text.
