This presentation came my way today...thank you to Clearview Public Schools for sharing. The presentation is based on the work of Dr. Richard Allington--who, for those of you who don't know, is a major, MAJOR guru in teaching reading.
I encourage you to take a quick flip through this slide deck if you're at all interested in thinking about reading, literacy and schools...
I hope you enjoy!
BTW- While I love the entire presentation, my top 6 favourite slides are: 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 30.
Which slides speak to you?
P.S. Richard Allington is also the author of my favourite SHORT article on what a great literacy program looks like. Click here to read it. It's delightful.
