Description

This workshop will afford participants the opportunity to develop a deep understanding of a theory of reading that underlies all reading instruction.This workshop will begin with a careful review of Marie Clay's theory of reading which posits that proficient readers use three sources of information to process a text. Building on this theory we will look at a model for creating reading interventions in all aspects of a reading curriculum: guided reading, read aloud, mini-lessons, shared reading and aspects of writing. This workshop will be a blend of theory and best practice, such that participants will leave the workshop with many additions to their teaching toolkit.
