How to Make Learning Stick: 3 Ways to Boost Your Reading Instruction
Wednesday, March 28, 2 p.m. ET
Have you ever felt frustrated when students don’t apply the skills and strategies you know you have taught them? You might ask yourself, “Why is this happening? Why isn’t my instruction transferring?”
Through their work in classrooms across the country, Jan Burkins and Kim Yaris have identified three elements that determine how well instruction transfers, and they will share them with you in this hourlong webinar. You’ll learn:
• The most important part of any reading lesson;
• Why instruction can fail even when a lesson is instructionally sound;
• How to avoid unintentionally creating learned helplessness in readers.
Jan and Kim will suggest specific strategies that you can put to use immediately, and they will help teachers, principals, and administrators work together to create independent, empowered readers.
Jan and Kim are the authors of the bestselling book, Who’s Doing the Work? How to Say Less So Readers Can Do More and the upcoming Who’s Doing the Work? Lesson Sets.
