Professional Learning: What Reading Teachers Need Most…Now.

by | Aug 31, 2022 | 1 comment

Ask most reading teachers if they learned everything they needed while in college, and chances are, they’ll say no. Hands-on classroom experience and in-the-classroom coaching and mentoring have been instrumental in helping them build confidence and capacity. But beyond in-class experiences, what kinds of professional learning will help reading teachers adapt and transform their practice? In this episode of Literacy Talks, our three literacy experts share their experiences, professional development recommendations, and wish lists. It’s a conversation every reading teacher will want to hear!

  1. Hi,
    I loved the episode on professional learning. At my school this year we are trying “extended learning” in the mornings where staff can choose topics they’d like to learn more about in regards to structured literacy.

    Some other places, in addition to what you shared on the episode, that I really have enjoyed learning from are Ortli (they had a really great free conference as well) kind of like PaTTAN. Literacy How website and Keys to Literacy. Amplify and Melissa and Lori Love Literacy podcasts and show notes, Read Washington by Jan Hasbrouck, and High Five Literacy. Thanks for another great episode!
