STAAR Reading Boot Camp - Austin, TX

To Register and for more information

In this one day workshop you’ll learn reading strategies which directly affect reading proficiency, and can be taught to your students during the intervention classes in the weeks before STAAR and EOC testing dates.

Your students will learn how to better understand test questions and passages. We’ll walk through the Inference Strategy together, which is designed to prepare students for reading assessments by teaching them how to make better inferences. We teach students to use these inferences to better understand test questions and passages, allowing them to easily identify the types of textual or factual evidence needed to answer all questions correctly.

In the afternoon, we’ll run through Anita Archer’s “9 Big Ideas for Effective Reading Instruction,” which teaches students to dive deeper into reading passages, boosting their reading comprehension and improving their STAAR success.
