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
Monday and Saturday, February 17 and 22, 2020
at Brandon University
in Education Building, Room 209.
This session will be very similar to the sessions we've conducted in the past although there are important changes and different aspects will be emphasized.
It is necessary to attend both days, as the second day is a
continuation of the first one.
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.
On the first 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.
We will be spending the second 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.
