Who's Doing the Work?: Strategies for CORE Reading Instruction
About the Course
Teachers will actively participate in online learning to develop stronger skills and strategies for literacy instruction in a more effective and efficient way through the use of the text, Who’s Doing the Work: How to Say Less So Readers Can Do More by Jan Miller Burkins and Kim Yaris. Students will participate in weekly discussions with classmates, and apply the skills and strategies we cover in their classrooms and instructional practices. This course will take the student through all facets of core literacy instruction from Shared Reading through Guided Reading and all elements in between.
This course is appropriate for elementary teachers, teacher librarians, instructional coaches, specials teachers and administrators. All are invited to join us as we learn about literacy and how to develop a strong foundation.
