11. Understanding Texts & Readers *CTLE Approved*

Program: School Improvement CTLE #755

Dates: 5/5/2019 to 6/23/2019


Understanding Texts & Readers makes comprehension make sense. In it, Jennifer Serravallo narrows the distance between assessment and instruction. She maps the four fiction and four nonfiction comprehension goals she presented in The Reading Strategies Book to fourteen text levels and shares sample responses that show what to expect from readers at each.

Jen simplifies text complexity and clarifies comprehension instruction. She begins by untangling the many threads of comprehension: Levels, engagement, stamina, the relevance of texts, and much more.

Then level by level she:
-calls out with precision how plot and setting, character, vocabulary and figurative language, and themes and ideas change as fiction across levels
specifies how the complexity of main idea, key details, vocabulary, and text features increases in nonfiction texts
-points out what to expect from a reader as text characteristics change
-provides samples of student responses to texts at each level
-shares progressions across levels to support instructional planning.
Even if you haven’t read the book your reader is responding to, you’ll have the background necessary to make great teaching decisions for all your readers. “Understanding subtle shifts and increases in demands from level to level,” writes Jennifer Serravallo, “can guide what a teacher asks a student, what the teacher expects of the student, and what the teacher, therefore, teaches the student.” Want to become a master of matching kids to books? Looking to take the difficult out of differentiation? Or do you want to dramatically increase the power and responsiveness of Jen’s Reading Strategies Book? Understanding Texts & Readers shows you how to move forward when students need to make progress.

Participants must purchase their own text. We will use Schoology and Twitter as learning platforms.

One of the primary fears staff members have is how to handle a student who is, or has the potential to become, physically aggressive. Keeping Everyone Safe prepares staff emotionally, mentally, and physically to cope with acting out, aggressive children and youth. It is not a course in self-defense; the actual hands-on, physical segment of the training is minimal. The primary goal of this program is to equip staff with the knowledge and skills that will enable them to avoid and de-escalate crisis situations without the need for physical intervention.

The program includes:

  • Sources of aggressive behavior.
  • Stages of crisis development.
  • Keeping others safe.
  • Supportive verbal and non-verbal de-escalation strategies.
  • Physical responses to attach.
  • Supportive physical intervention and transport techniques.
  • Crisis team development, roles, and communication.
  • Talking with students after a crisis, and development of policies and procedural safeguards.
