Curious about research-backed strategies and best practices for fostering literacy development through targeted and systematic instruction? Whether following a big box curriculum or a campus created scope and sequence, educators need to make intentional decisions about instruction and how students are accessing the information we provide. Join Natalie Mitchell for this hands-on, interactive workshop as we explore how various teaching methods such as demonstration, guided practice, and inquiry can help scaffold instruction in both whole group and small group instruction. Get ready to revolutionize your reading instruction and unlock the full potential of your students' literacy skills! Natalies’s expertise as a literacy consultant will equip you with the tools and resources you need to apply various learning styles to your instructional practices from in-book reading to read aloud.  

This is workshop one of three for the series titled “Explicit and Systemic Instruction in the Literacy Classroom.” 

Key Takeaways: 

  • Explore the principles of explicit and systemic instruction and how they can be applied to enhance reading instruction in both whole group and small group settings. 
  • Learn practical strategies for systematically building students' decoding, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension skills through structured and scaffolded lessons. 
  • Discover how to differentiate instruction to meet the diverse needs of learners, including English language learners, struggling readers, and advanced readers, ensuring equitable access to high-quality literacy instruction for all students. 
  • Gain insights into the importance of ongoing assessment and progress monitoring in guiding instructional decisions, identifying areas of need, and promoting continuous growth and improvement. 

Workshop Details: 

While we recommend that you attend all sessions of the workshop series to meet the learning objectives, each workshop can be attended as a standalone. Full members will also have access to view the recordings on demand and earn up to three continuing education credits. 

Special Technology Instructions: 

Attendees will need access to an internet-enabled device and a personal Google account (not affiliated with their school). SimpleK12’s Google Classroom will be utilized for the interactive and hands-on components of this workshop.
