Read Aloud with Accountable Talk is the heart of the Reading

Workshop.  It is in this time each day that we plan to capture the

hearts of the readers in our classroom.  It is here that we become

the models of not only what it is to read a great book, but also what

it is to think and talk across a great book in critical ways.  

During this TWO DAY workshop, we will take a concentrated look at using accountable talk in your classroom to boost student comprehension and strengthen independent reading skills. We will:

  • help you know the keys to choosing great books.

  • model and help you explicitly plan a read aloud.

  • provide you with critical talk stems to support growing conversations in your readers.

  • look at how to grow talk into "stop and jots" as well as beginning "write longs" in the reader's notebook.

New angles of this work include deeper work in Readers' Notebooks, using documentaries, and using media pieces to strengthen student understanding. We will also look more closely at growing work in Readers' Notebooks across the year to strengthen depth of comprehension as well as student writing. Included in this work will be ways to embed clear moments for readers to "stop and jot" that will transfer to the same kind of work they would do in their independent reading.



This workshop qualifies for Title 1 funding.​

Plan to arrive between 8:10 and 8:20 to sign in, pick up materials and find seating.  If you are expecting a large group from your school it is a good idea to come early if sitting together is important to you.  Dress comfortably and you may want to add layers...buildings can be really cold.
