The Reading Strategies Book: A Guided Workshop
Presented by Jennifer Serravallo and Berit Gordon
Hosted by the Reading Department of Clinical Support Services of Winnipeg School Division
With hit books that support strategic reading and assessment, Jen Serravallo gets emails almost daily asking, “Isn’t there a book of the strategies themselves?” Now there is. In The Reading Strategies Book, she collects 300 strategies to share with readers in support of thirteen goals—everything from fluency to literary analysis. Whether you use readers’ workshop, Daily 5/CAFE, guided reading, balanced reading, or any other approach, The Reading Strategies Book will help you to plan and implement goal-directed, differentiated instruction. In this workshop Jennifer herself will introduce the book and its structures in a one hour webinar. Following her introduction, Jennifer’s colleague, literacy consultant and author Berit Gordon, will guide us through the many ways in which the strategies collected in this book can help us to improve our practice working with developing readers K-8.
