"Invest in your teachers by building your knowledge of effective literacy skills. Empower your teachers to stand in front of children every day and know that they are skilled enough to address the different needs, the different deficiencies or reading challenges that students might bring into their classrooms.” --- taken from The Hechinger Report

The components of effective literacy (reading instruction) are the same whether for prevention or for intervention. There is no better prevention or intervention than having a teacher that recognizes and is trained in the components of effective literacy and implements them in their reading instruction. How can administrators ensure effective reading instruction is in their building?

In this 4-session workshop, administrators will learn what components of evidence-based effective literacy to look for when observing teachers in their walk-throughs and how to coach with intentional feedback to ensure effective reading instruction.

Session 2 - How Phonological Skills Should be Taught

In addition to looking at Missouri's requirements for PDCs, the national standards for professional learning will be discussed. The traditional definition of professional learning will be expanded to enable planners to ensure that it is a comprehensive, ongoing, comprehensive process - not just an event.

During this workshop, teams will have the opportunity to work together to develop an action plan to frame next steps in deepening the professional learning process in their school.

Please join us as we get a head start on preparing for Cohort 3 File Review. Goals of this workshop will be to help you determine what is expected of you throughout the file review, what to look for in files that you will submit, and how to move forward as you prepare the file you are working on during the fall of the 2022-2023 school year.

In order to prepare for the review, please bring a sample file to go through in regard to what will be expected in the file review submitted to DESE.
