NCRA is ready to kick-off this year with an amazing session to support Guided Reading.
Debbie Rosenow will be sharing her knowledge and experience at our first session on September 21, 2016 4:30pm-7:00pm. Guided Reading can be one of the most powerful teaching practices implemented in the classroom. Not only does it naturally provide differentiation, but allows for individual teaching opportunities. Learn specific strategies that will build students’ strength in decoding, fluency, determining meaning of unknown words, and comprehension. Participants will leave with practical teaching ideas that can be implemented immediately into guided reading instruction.
