Reading Partners: Moving Readers Up Levels (Levels A-J), Grades K-1

In this series of videos, children join a reading partner—a Staff Developer from TCRWP—to work through texts that present progressively greater challenges with decoding, comprehension, and fluency. As the two read together as partners, the Staff Developer coaches the child to gradually take on harder challenges. This series of videos will provide children with the companionship and coaching that they need, while also modelling warm, supportive, fun ways that parents and teachers can read side-by-side with children.

Guided Practice: Learning to Write about Nonfiction Topics You Already Know Well, Grades 3 and Up

In this sequence of videos, staff developers from Columbia University’s Teachers College Reading and Writing Project coach individual writers to generate ideas for a nonfiction book, and to work through the process of writing that book. Writing well requires a knowledge of the topic, so students are guided to write about topics of personal expertise (i.e. basketball). However, if they have studied a topic deeply (i.e. The American Revolution) this coaching can help them write well about those topics, too.
