Use Strategy Lessons Efficiently and Effectively
In this single-session course, master teacher and author Jen Serravallo will help you learn how to use reading strategy lessons to maintain the feel of one-on-one conferring while working efficiently with small groups of students. This single-session course is specially produced from one of the strategy sessions within Jen’s full-length On-Demand Course. (See Jen’s full-length course link below.) In strategy lessons, students are gathered based on the need for a common strategy, rather than because they are reading at the same level. Children use their own self-selected texts to practice a new strategy as the teacher flexibility varies the amount of support for each individual through prompts, coaching, and feedback.
- Learn to craft a clear, concrete strategy based on your students’ needs
- Understand the structure of a strategy lesson
- Review and practice gradual release techniques when presenting new strategies to readers as they practice
- Reinforce your understanding by watching videos showing the flexibility and range of applicability of strategy lessons.
This is a Single-Session On-Demand Course. You can also consider enrolling in Jennifer Serravallo's full-length On-Demand Course Teaching Reading in Small Groups: Matching Methods to Purposes.
