Foster Reading for Enjoyment, Meaning, and Learning

In this video-based mini-course, you will learn how to use an informal reading conference as an efficient and effective tool for comprehensive reading assessment. Through conducting a one-on-one reading conference, you will be able to ensure all your students are self-selecting books for enjoyment and deep understanding and are not just moving through texts. Observe how Regie guides students in a diverse classroom to become self-monitoring readers through building on their strengths, strategically teaching what skills and strategies the student needs next to move forward, identifying goals with the student, and raising expectations for quality and quantity of reading.
