Student Achievement in Reading (StAR)
Reading is a content area that impacts every other subject. In the Student Achievement in Reading program, instructors will receive intensive training on reading strategies and on implementing a data-driven change model. Participants learn about diagnostic reading assessments, strategies to use in the classroom with intermediate readers, how to implement a Student Achievement in Reading program, and have access to a Student Achievement in Reading Toolkit.
What you will learn:
- The four reading components and how they are interrelated.
- Describe the purposes of norm-referenced, criterion-referenced, and performance-based assessments.
- How to administer diagnostic reading assessments and interpret results.
- How to plan a series of lessons with the framework of direct and explicit instruction.
* Participants need to register for each of the three sessions to complete the Student Achievement in Reading Training. Each two-day session is worth 14 PD hours. Sessions must be taken in order (session 1, then session 2, then session 3).
