TOT for Teaching Reading Effectively (Trainer of Trainer) - July 7-11, 2014 (5 day event)
In support of A.R.S. 15-701 – Move On When Reading, and Arizona’s College and Career Ready ELA Standards, the Arizona Department of Education is extending its professional development content while remaining committed to building capacity as the local, regional and state level. Teaching Reading Effectively course is strongly aligned to the AZ Common Core Standards - ELA: Foundational Skills (K-5), Reading Standards for Literature and Informational Text (K-5) and Language Standards (K- 5). The content includes current research and evidence based practices that are necessary for the development of the technical skills of reading along with academic vocabulary and deep comprehension. Important components of an effective comprehensive reading program designed to develop proficient readers, competent writers and critical thinkers are included in this material. While the training is designed for K-5 instruction, it provides excellent information for K-3 Teachers and Special Education Teachers K-12 implementing school and district literacy plans.
