6. Building Strategic Readers: The Art of Prompting for Strategic Action (Target Audience: K–2 and 3–5/6)
A key element of guided reading involves close observation of students’ literacy processing behaviors. Learning how to listen and make quick decisions about where to prompt takes time and practice. In this workshop, participants look carefully at what strategic actions are important for students to develop at each reading stage. Additionally, they will learn the importance of using running records as a tool for observing how students are approaching reading. Finally, we will delve deeper into how to foster strategic processing as students read and reread a new book, as well as how and what to teach the group following the reading.
Our goal is simple.
