About this learning opportunity

Planning an Anchor-Read-Apply lesson begins by choosing the purpose for reading the selected text. Only after you have identified the purpose can you plan a matching Anchor activity. An important part of Guided Reading is the repeated reading of a text, every day for a week, reading for a different purpose each time.

Using the English Language Arts Programs of Study, participants will identify specific reading comprehension outcomes to focus on with students. These outcomes will then be used as a foundation for creating purposes for reading.

This half day workshop is designed for participants already familiar with the Anchor-Read-Apply comprehension strategy. Participants will spend most of the session creating Anchor-Read-Apply lessons that can be taken back to the classroom and used with students right away.

Already have some age respectful and engaging literature in mind? Please bring these with you!

This learning opportunity is being provided through funding from Alberta Education.
