What does it take to make all of our students great readers—especially now that the Common Core State Standards define reading at a higher degree of rigor than ever before? Based on the experiences of the highest-achieving early reading teachers, the Great Habits, Great Readers workshop answers this question and many more. The Reading model presented in this workshop is structured around the habits that consistently produce outstanding reading results—actions that can be replicated in any school, by any teacher. It’s not just about finding the right texts (though we’ll cover that); it’s not just about making discussions more text-dependent (though we’ll address that, too). At its heart, the Reading-by-Habit model is about transforming that moment when a child gets something wrong into an opportunity to teach the habits that will help him or her get it right.
