The Importance of Effective Independent Reading
February Professional Development
We will continue our study on the book The Next Step in Guided Reading by Jan Richardson. We will focus on chapter 7 Helping Struggling Readers. We will analyze student data to set goals and develop an action plan. We will update the school data wall. Also there will be time to plan lessons, look for resources, or evaluate literacy stations. Remember to sign up in PD Express for the session titled "PD Planning with Purpose-PVES". Chickfila lunch will be provided as well as drinks and snacks. Please remember to bring the following to our meeting:
-Data from a student that is not progressing (running records, reading log, anecdotal notes, SEI, interest inventory, etc.)
-Recent guided reading levels to update the data wall
-The Next Step in Guided Reading book
-Grade level copy of The Reading Strategies Book by Jennifer Serravallo
