This course is designed to help teachers in grades K-5 establish reading workshop. The course will be devoted to studying, planning for, and practicing various methods of reading instruction. Methods covered in this course will include:
· interactive read-aloud,
· explicit strategy instruction,
· independent reading,
· guided reading,
· shared reading, and
· phonics/word study.
These will be learned through a combination of related readings, video clips, analyzing samples of student work, and a range of other engaging online resources.
The course is designed to be self-paced, allowing participants to work on sessions as schedules allow across the summer. Informal, formative assessments are embedded into each session. A companion summer online course An Overview of Writing Workshop will be running concurrently and should be registered for separately.
This course is offered for two St. Michaels College graduate credits, through Champlain Valley Educator Development Center. Click here for more information.
Note: Books not included, but access to Units of Study for Teaching Reading(Calkins et al) required to take course.
