  • How to effectively implement close reading 
  • How to formatively assess students based on the artifacts created during reading instruction

  • 11 modules for both K-5 and 6-12 with more than 16-hours of focused study and job-embedded application per grade band
  • A Facilitator’s Guide with step-by-step instructions for each module
  • Ready-to-present PowerPoints
  • Carefully paced sessions with videos, handouts, and lesson starters
  • Opportunities for teachers to practice what they’ve learned in their classrooms and reflect with their colleagues.
