The first professional development session in a series looking closely at the literacy block. As the Literacy Coach of an urban elementary school in Massachusetts, I provided a year long professional development series that begins at examining the literacy block components.
This PD looks at the block as a whole and zooms in on whole group instruction specifically.
Subsequent professional development sessions in this series include:
- small group instruction and independent work
- close reading
- drawing conclusions
Time: 90 min.
