auf den Weg
If you are a teacher of German, new to using guided reading in a balanced literacy setting, or if you need to refresh your skills, check out this two-day workshop on
Tuesday and Wednesday, July 23 and 24 , 2019
at Northern State University,
Aberdeen, South Dakota,
in Gerber Building, Room 203.
This session is a repeat of the Brandon, MB session for July 11-12, 2019. Registration is still open for the Brandon session. Scroll down to see registration form.
In this session we will discuss the importance of explicitly and systematically teaching German using strategies based on literature and themes relevant to student lives. We will show how to teach phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, comprehension and fluency using a balanced model so that teachers have a variety of tools at their disposal.
We will be spending one day talking about guided reading, where we will discuss strategies that promote independent reading for the earliest readers and also for more advanced readers. The importance of assessment and how to build a strong foundation in the German language, where both oral and reading/writing skills are taught, will be discussed in depth.
On the second day we will go through Balanced Literacy components: Shared Reading, Read Alouds, Word Study, Writing, and Guided Reading. We will show how these components fit together and how they inform our instruction using the gradual release of responsibility model.
