Professional Development in
Research-Based Literacy Instruction: Grades preK-8

The goal of the Literacy Links professional development is to provide teachers with the knowledge base and the strategies necessary to be successful in increasing the reading levels for all their students. I believe that teachers, not programs teach children to read.

What are the best research-based strategies that every classroom teacher should incorporate into the literacy block? How do I differentiate instruction to meet the wide range of readers in my classroom? How do I teach reading and still have time to teach social studies and science? These are just a few of the questions that I address in my training.

Providing strong intentional reading instruction for all students is not always an easy task, but if we are sincere about “leaving no child behind” this lofty goal is worth the effort.

“Before I began using the small group reading model, most of my students read below grade level. Now, most of my students are reading at or above grade level, their confidence has grown and they enjoy reading and learning.”

– Allison Barham, teacher
