Are you ready to revolutionize your teaching and dramatically improve the engagement and comprehension of all of your students while meeting the demands of the Common Core Standards? Would you like to take your comprehension instruction to the next level so your students are the ones doing the work and using the strategies when they read on their own? Many students decode and yet don't comprehend what they read. The Fabulous Four, or reciprocal teaching strategies (Palincsar and Brown) predict, question, clarify, and summarize work as a powerful package to begin to yield dramatic results in reading comprehension in as little as 15 days. This exciting NEW version of reciprocal teaching is loaded with dozens of new lessons for whole class, content area reading, guided reading, stations, and a practical Response to Intervention Model. You'll experience first hand motivating lessons. This model yields student growth of six months to two years in just three months. Come to this practical, hands-on, and entertaining workshop to learn ideas you can use tomorrow to strengthen student comprehension using any reading material.
