With all the demands schools face today, time never seems to be on our side. With that comes big responsibilities for how we spend our time during reading workshops to make the biggest impact possible. In this webinar, the authors of What Are You Grouping For? How to Guide Small Groups Based on Readers—Not the Book, will walk you through five teacher moves for growing students’ reading muscles through small-group learning experiences: kidwatching, pivoting, assessing, curating, and planning. During this interactive webinar (get ready to participate and add your voice to the conversation through a google doc if you choose!), Julie and Barry will share some key strategies that will help you launch and sustain small-group learning opportunities with students’ curiosities, passions, habits, and needs in mind.
