The Reflective Teacher

Tools to help you focus your reflective thinking about your professional self will include...
  • Tools for creating your VISION & PROFESSIONAL GOALS

  • ME...I'll be that little voice in your ear (and your inbox) each month to hold you accountable 😉

Weekly resources could include...

Minilessons

It's important that minilessons provide readers with tools and strategies that can be applied within any piece of text they are reading.  Minilessons are not text title specific; minilessons are lessons in how to apply strategies, skills and tools to ANY text in order to build comprehension and gain meaning.  Minilessons will definitely be part of the weekly resources.  A ready to go minilesson will be delivered to your inbox at least once a month!

Student Engagement Tools

Weekly resources delivered to members of Building Readers Society could include student engagement tools.  Student engagement in reading is essential in helping to build and develop strong readers.  Your students need tools to guide their practice and application of new strategies and skills within their own independent reading.

Planning Tools

Planning tools could also be part of the weekly deliveries straight to your inbox.  It's important to have planning tools in your instructional toolkit that will help guide you in creating and designing more intentional & purposeful instruction for your readers.  

Read Aloud Tools, Strategies & Activities

Weekly resources could include read aloud suggestions and activities to supplement  reading instruction.  When a read aloud is filled with intention and purpose to frontload instruction, students will benefit from the model of a proficient reader.

Seasonal Activities

Weekly resources could include seasonal activities.  Holiday, date specific and seasonal activities should be just as intentional and purposeful as all other instructional resources.  Resources that are seasonal should be designed to build your readers.

Literacy in the Content Areas

Resources sent out weekly could include strategies and activities to use during content area studies.  Literacy has a place in all subject areas.  When designing instruction, it's important to provide a place to connect literacy strategies within the content.
