The reading that you do feeds your writing.  This training day looks at the importance of teaching reading within the Talk for Writing process.  It will cover strategies to teach vocabulary consistently and explicitly and then move into the strategic teaching of reading comprehension skills.  Finally, it will explore a variety of ideas for building a reading culture in your classrooms and your school.

Prior attendance at a two day Talk for Writing workshop is a pre-requisite for this workshop.
