5 Steps to Crafting Minilessons That Will Ignite & Engage Your Readers


Move your readers into new levels of engagement.

Intentional planning is the most effective way to building readers that are highly motivated, highly engaged & more analytical.

These 5 days will lead you through the minilesson planning process I used for over 20 years that sparked my readers to actively engage in their independent reading. (And…pass that reading test at the end of the school year.)
