Primary-grade teachers face an important challenge: teaching children how to read while enabling them to build good habits so they fall in love with reading. Many teachers find the independent Reading Workshop to be the component of reading instruction that meets this challenge. Sessions are devoted to the individual units of study as well as examples of mini-lessons and reading conferences.

Session topics:

Session 1: Structures for Success

  • Exploring the Reading Units of Study Resources
  • Groundwork for success - the underlying structure of the workshop
  • Physical setup of your Reading World:  classroom libraries, Student Book Selections and Reading Volume
  • Zooming in on the mini-lesson formats
  • Understanding the Learning Progress for your first Unit of Study

Session 2: The Learning Progressions

  • Exploring the Learning Progressions
  • Connecting the unit sessions to the Learning Progressions
  • Performance Assessments
  • Conferring and Small Group Instruction

Session 3: Assessment and More

  • Assessing Across the Reading Progressions
  • The Interactive Read Aloud & Writing About Reading
  • Book Clubs
  • Fleshing Out an If…Then Unit of Study

CESA 6 makes every effort to accommodate basic dietary needs such as vegetarian, gluten free and basic food allergies. Because of the number of meals served and the number of items used each day, along with food product changes from our food vendors, we cannot guarantee that every allergen in the food served will be identified and labeled. Guests concerned with food allergies must be aware of this risk. CESA 6 does not assume liability for adverse reactions to food consumed or items one may come into contact with while eating at a CESA 6 event. To better serve our guests with dietary restrictions or allergies, please go into your myQuickReg account and update the special accommodations section. Notice of a special dietary need must be made in advance of the event.

Cancellation Policy:

Any registration cancellation must be received 48 business hours before the scheduled date for a refund to be issued. Because attendance at most sessions is limited, persons registering and not in attendance on the day of the session will be charged the full registration fee. CESA 6 reserves the right to cancel any session due to insufficient enrollment. Participants will be notified by email or phone if a cancellation occurs.
