Teaching Every Child to Read: Professional Development Guide

| TECR | Topics | Features| Purchase | Professional Development Guide | Sample |

Developed by respected CIERA researchers Taffy Raphael and Susan Florio-Ruane, the Professional Development Guide offers 10 vignettes based on the principles described in CIERA’s popular professional development package, Teaching Every Child to Read: Frequently Asked Questions. The vignettes are accompanied by targeted questions designed to provoke discussion and learning in professional development and teacher training programs, and are perfect for both group and individual study. The Guide’s realistic scenarios use sample e-mails, transcripts of teacher conferences, and other authentic artifacts to encourage discussion and help teachers apply new, research-based strategies for successfully teaching reading in the classroom.
