As educators, we need to constantly use data to drive instruction. However, that can be easier said than done. In this workshop, we will share some user-friendly strategies that work, including:

- Looking for trends in the data to plan whole class lessons;
- Looking at individual scores to form small groups;
- Collecting additional data on a regular basis; and,
- Sharing the results with students to develop ownership and a growth mindset.

These strategies are designed to save educators time while using data to drive instruction.

This workshop is being offered as a virtual course, delivered live online via Zoom.

The science of reading is a vast, interdisciplinary body of scientifically-based research about reading and issues related to reading and writing. This research has been conducted over the last five decades across the world and is derived from thousands of studies conducted in multiple languages. The science of reading has culminated in a preponderance of evidence to inform how proficient reading and writing develop; why some have difficulty; and how we can most effectively assess and teach and, therefore, improve student outcomes through prevention of and intervention for reading difficulties. The session will provide participants with strategies to shift practices to those that align with the research in order to improve student outcomes, as well as focus on strategies for small group instruction and learning centers.
