Whew, that was a lot of rain and snow!
Thank you Mr. Gallaher, Welcome to QHS Mr. Ofenham!
Looking for an alternative to SSR? Quick tip from Instructional Coach Susan Frediani:
Looking for ways to prepare students to read independently, productively, accountably, and efficiently in all subjects? Try Doug Lemov’s instructional strategy AIR: Accountable Independent Reading (Reading Reconsidered 2016). This method encodes success in reading independently then slowly increases both rigor and stamina. The key components to AIR include:
· Limiting text and gradually increasing length
· Finding a focal point for independent reading
· Setting time limits
· Interactive reading tasks
· Teacher confirmation and scaffolding of comprehension
If you would like further information regarding AIR or to schedule a demonstration lesson or other coaching support, please contact Instructional Coach Susan Frediani.
