Understanding Texts and Readers: Strategies and Structures for Comprehension with Jennifer Serravallo

Drawing from Jen’s bestselling resources on the teaching of reading: Understanding Texts & Readers; The Reading Strategies Book; and A Teacher’s Guide to Reading Conferences, this workshop will help you to make sense of text leveling and comprehension, and become adept at assessing and teaching to support student comprehension through conferences and small group instruction whether in-person with students or online. The day will begin with hands-on activities designed to help educators understand how to break down comprehension into manageable goals, skills, and strategies. Exploring the role of text complexity, you’ll also understand how to use text levels as a teacher’s tool to know what to expect of readers’ written and oral responses level-by-level and goal-by-goal. With a foundational understanding of text levels and student response, you’ll then explore the ways that this knowledge can help you find the right goals and strategies for students, creating your own formative assessments. You’ll work with student case studies to practice evaluating responses. This is all designed to make it possible to turn around and translate it into your classroom right away. Once goals are targeted from meaningful, authentic evaluation of student work, you’ll learn how using these same skill progressions can help guide you while teaching. Jen will discuss and show videos of various methods of teaching—individual conferences, small group strategy lessons, and whole class instruction—from in classroom with children and that were captured through online video conferencing. Here, you’ll explore the role of guided practice and coaching. You’ll leave equipped to put strategies in action in your classroom and support your readers as they work toward comprehension goals.


Patterns of Power: Inviting Young and Emergent Writers into the Conventions of Language, PreK - 2nd Grade

This workshop is designed for those who teach or support PreK through 2nd grade. Meaning is made when reading and writing crash together in the conventions of language. Join us as we explore ways to support composition and comprehension with our youngest writers by harnessing the language conventions. Let’s move the conventions of language from being viewed as a right and wrong to seeing them as providing meaning and effect, in both oral and written language. Let’s enjoy the curiosity and wonder young children have around what writers do. Let’s engage in brain-based, practical ways to use the reading-writing connection to teach grammar and editing in a way that grows even our youngest writers and readers.
