Jan Richardson on the Day:

"Do you have struggling readers? I can show you how to find out what is holding them back. We will use assessments to develop an acceleration plan that includes reading, writing, word study, and suggestions for collaborating between the interventionist and the classroom teacher. You will leave this session with hope and research-based techniques for helping all readers, especially those who struggle."

Guided Reading Companion

The Guided Reading Teacher’s Companion

"In this convenient flip-chart guide, you can easily find prompts, discussion starters, and teaching points to use when you want students to process more effectively, think more deeply, and express their ideas more thoughtfully. The self-standing guide with sturdy pages makes it convenient to use while working with small groups. Instantly, you can use these tools as starting points for in-depth inquiry based on behaviors you’re noticing in students. There are also recommendations on how to revise them as necessary to meet every reader’s needs."
