Workshop Wednesday #2 – Running Records – Making Targeted Teaching Moves
Offered: Wednesday October 13, 2021 at 6:30pm (eastern time)
If you are new to running records as an assessment tool or have questions about using running records to accelerate literacy learning in your classroom this is just the hands on workshop you need.
“Using running records as a component of classroom reading assessment, teachers of bottom-up, top-down, or somewhere-in-between orientations can develop their skill to make on-the-spot analyses and broaden their repertoire and agility, offering well targeted teaching moves” (Stouffer, 2021, p. 780).
Building upon the 2020 online professional learning session on running record analysis, join Dr. Joe Stouffer in a 90 min collaborative workshop session. In the workshop, teachers will have opportunities to discuss, practice and extend their skills formatively linking running record analysis to reading instruction. The session is capped at 25 participants so everyone can have time to discuss, learn and ask questions. If this session is sold out please register for one on another date. If interest exceeds capacity we will add more sessions.
Materials for the session, including a supporting analysis and prompting guide which will be distributed to participants prior to the workshop. In preparation, it is recommended that registrants view the 2020 session (available to all upon payment) and read the accompanying publication: Stouffer, J. (2021).
