During this two-day workshop, participants learn to allocate instructional materials, group students based on need, and plan effective instruction to ensure growth in reading. The two-day format allows educators enough time to absorb and reflect on the information they have gathered through assessment.
Participants explore and use the DRA2 resources to enhance best practices, making it possible to focus on instruction and provide specific teaching strategies based on their students’ levels and needs.
By the end of the program, participants will be able to:
• Use and score assessments with the DRA2 scoring continuum and assessment tools.
• Summarize how to identify a student’s independent reading level and document progress over time for each of the reading stages.
• Integrate Focus for Instruction into informed lesson planning.
• Use DRA2 data to make decisions and plan effective instructional strategies for reading growth.
