Professional development involves teachers and educators having opportunities to learn about best practices and time to incorporate teaching strategies into their classrooms. In order to implement effective reading instruction to promote literacy growth, first new teachers need to know students’ literacy strengths and weaknesses. All students do not learn the same way, meaning, students come into the classroom with diverse backgrounds, whether being strong, struggling, reluctant, or ELL students.
This professional development product can help new teachers and educators focus on what is most important when helping their students enhance their literacy skills. This professional development product includes a PowerPoint Presentation, Talking Points and a hand-out for the audience.
