Calling all 3rd-8th grade ELA teachers! Build a repertoire of instructional methods for engaging students while strengthening their reading and listening comprehension skills during read-aloud time. Sessions guide teachers through the planning process and include explanations, examples, and modeling. Additional resources are provided via direct links under main workshop videos.
Professional Practice Goal:
Upon completion of this course, participants will be ready to plan and implement standards-based interactive read-alouds into their whole class or small group instruction.

I am so enjoying this class. There are so many great tips that I can implement immediately for instructional read-aloud with my students. One thing among many that stood out for me is looking at a standard, connecting it to a specific skill, and then turning it into language that students can understand and apply when they are reading.
