Effective Literacy Practices: Instructional Models That Support the TEKS (K–8)

This workshop delves into research-based best practices in literacy instruction, which focus on teaching methods that have the greatest impact on student learning. Teachers will examine daily structures and routines that provide clear expectations, demonstrate critical and reflective thinking, engage students in collaborative conversations, allow time for authentic reading and writing experiences, and present ongoing feedback in order to develop self-directed learners.

The content of this workshop includes an introduction to the following topics:

  • Understanding the Gradual Release of Responsibility model;
  • Components of Reading and Writing Workshop;
  • Creating a Literate Rich Environment: Rituals, Routines, and Tools;
  • Lesson Structures: Interactive Read Alouds and Mini-lessons (Think-Alouds)
  • Motivating Readers and Writers with Mentor Texts; and
  • Ongoing Formative Assessment (Conferring)
