Reading Reconsidered
Teach Like a Champion

Region 17 is excited to bring you ‘Reading Reconsidered’, by Teach Like a Champion,  where you will learn the most up-to-date guidance on reading and writing instruction.  This practice-intensive workshop provides instructional leaders with the materials and guidance to deliver high quality literacy classroom support and provides teachers with the tools to implement research-based literacy instructional practices with their students, both with the goal of driving literacy results in schools.

As educators you will learn more about high quality literacy instruction based on the Science of Reading and Learning. Facilitators will share research related to fluency, background knowledge, attention, and deliberate practice, as well as support participants in considering practical applications of this research that will support student literacy achievement.


  • Ways of Reading—How to maximize the amount of reading students do and how to balance the use of shared oral and silent reading to create joyful cultures of reading and belonging.
  • Knowledge Building and Tools—How to build background knowledge in literacy classes and leverage it to support comprehension and analysis
  • Vocabulary—How to effectively teach new vocabulary and reinforce vocabulary acquisition during reading
  • Writing for Reading—How to leverage the synergies between three types of academic writing to prepare students to be excellent writers as well as readers
  • Close Reading and Text Complexity-- How to support students in establishing and analyzing meaning in texts that are sufficiently rigorous and complex

**Please bring a device with you on the day of the workshop!  We look forward to working with you!!!
