Achievement Institute 101
1-Day Institute

When implemented effectively, the Close Reading for Meaning method allows teachers to do significantly less formal test preparation.  This institute will teach teachers to build upon a strong foundation of Close Reading for Meaning to help their students tackle the high-stakes ELA exams with confidence, precision, and meaning front and center.  Participants will come away with:

  • A clear roadmap for what students must master when in order to excel on the ELA exam (and what to do if you fall behind)
  • Structures for effective test prep lessons that maximize targeted coaching while building student independence
  • Protocols for weekly and daily planning of instruction
  • Robust practice and feedback planning and teaching test prep lessons
  • A strong understanding of how to design and implement Strategic Coaching Plans geared toward moving groups of students to mastery each week
  • Clear structures and systems for building a highly motivating and positive classroom culture around testing

WHO SHOULD COME: This training is designed for teachers of grades 3-8 who already have Close Reading for Meaning up and running in their classrooms.
