Description - Comprehension Toolkit: Staff Development with The Comprehension Toolkits by Stephanie Harvey
Teachers matter. Effective comprehension instruction is more than a handful of reading strategies. As critical as these strategies are, Stephanie Harvey and Anne Goudvis have long held that it is the teacher who makes the difference. Staff Development with The Comprehension Toolkits builds on this understanding in a unique collaboration with Angela Butler Schroden, the district reading specialist who helped implement The Comprehension Toolkit series across Hillsborough County, Florida, one of the largest school districts in the United States. Designed for literacy coaches, reading specialists, and administrators, this multimedia resource offers an insider's view of how Angela and others in her district supported teachers as they launched comprehension instruction and sustained active literacy practices.
Framed around five coaching structures-workshops, study groups, demonstration teaching, co-teaching, and one-to-one coaching-each of the seven core chapters describes how to plan staff development around the foundational ideas and practices that shape Toolkit instruction. The accompanying CD-ROM provides all the tools you'll need to implement effective coaching sessions, including three customisable PowerPoint presentations. While providing a collaborative forum to explore the "whats and whys" of The Comprehension Toolkit, the professional development practices in this resource serve as analytical tools and frameworks for enhancing teaching craft.
