The Teachers College Reading & Writing Project is pleased to offer the 11th Annual Coaching Institute on Literacy Coaching and whole school reform in the teaching of reading. This intimate and intensive institute will offer educators the chance to study TCRWP's methods of staff development, focusing especially on the Common Core's call for us to accelerate reading development. There will be a specific emphasis on assessments to build strong foundational skills and to ratchet up the level of high-level comprehension skills. This institute will teach you ways to support school-wide consistency and rigor by supporting teachers in methods of teaching fiction and nonfiction reading. You will learn how to support a wide-spectrum of teachers, both novice and experienced, by providing more responsive evidence based teaching.
