The Dilley Summer Institute in Texas facilitated by A.L.L. consultants, Bebe Morrissey and Andy Hess, ended on a high note.
Here’s what the teachers said:
“Everything was awesome - now I will implement the strategies taught!”
“I thought Guided Reading was only a one/two step process… now I know it requires many steps and strategies that result in better readers.”
“I thought Guided Reading was having the students just read. Now I know it’s a process. Thank you.”
“I learned how to take a novel and ‘chunk it’ so that students understand the text and enjoy reading.”
“I thought I knew what Guided Reading and Shared Reading looked like, however, after seeing the videos and practicing the strategies, I am in more confident in implementing these components”
In Dilley, Texas – the Watermelon capital of the country – everyone experienced a slice of the good life!
