I am the reading specialist at a K-5 elementary school with an extremely diverse student body. We have students from different countries represented at our school. I love working with kids from so many different cultures and backgrounds. They have so much to bring to the table and I learn new things from them every day.
The authors of "Conferring with Readers", Gravity Goldberg and Jennifer Serravallo, provide a comprehensive guide to making the most of each one-on-one weekly independent reading conferences with students. From helping students to choose a "just right" text to supporting student goals to move from level to the next, Goldberg and Serravallo, provide effective teaching methods. The strategies in this book will teach us how to deepen student conversations around the books they're reading independently. In turn, students will want to read more and will achieve their goals of moving into more complex texts as they independently apply comprehension strategies.
