These Reading Strategy Posters were developed in Canada by Donna Baker, whose credentials include an M. Ed. Literacy, twenty years as an elementary school teacher and librarian, two years as a resource teacher, six years as a Workshop Leader and two years as a vice principal. As a result, the posters combine the latest in educational theory with practical, hands-on classroom experience.
Another advantage that our Reading Strategy Posters offer you is that they've already been classroom tested and proven to be effective. The posters have been used successfully by school boards across North America for over eight years, including:
Canada: Avon Maitland DSB, Lambton Kent DSB, London Catholic DSB, Ottawa-Carleton Catholic DSB, Toronto Catholic DSB, Peel DSB, Waterloo Region DSB and Upper Canada DSB
USA: Dickinson Public School District - North Dakota, Conejo Unified School District - Connecticut, Mississippi Bend Area Educational Agency - Indiana, Downers Grove Grade School District 58 - Illinois, Renton School District - Washington, and Liberty Public School District - Missouri
The following are testimonials from teachers who have used our Reading Strategy Posters:
"Every teacher focussing on improving their students' reading comprehension should have a set of these Reading Strategy Posters. I've found that the attractive, colourful posters greatly assist teachers when they are introducing the comprehension strategies, and they also become important tools for the students".
Faculty of Education, York University
"The Reading Strategy Posters are a wonderful resource which help to implement and reinforce comprehension strategies. I strongly encourage teachers to display the posters in their classrooms, the lunchroom and in major hallways. Children need a visual anchor to the strategies and the posters very effectively provide that anchor".
Graduate Teacher/Literacy Staff Developer - Elgin, Illinois
