Enhanced Core Reading Instruction™ Workshop

Monday & Tuesday 10/27 & 10/28/14

This 2-Day workshop will overview Enhanced Core Reading Instruction, a multi-tiered program featuring a series of teaching routines designed to increase the effectiveness of reading instruction in grades K-2. The routines are used to enhance the instruction associated with ANY core reading program. Enhanced Core Reading Instruction also offers materials that may be used with specific core reading programs including Journeys Common Core 2014, Journeys 2011, Reading Street Common Core 2013, and Reading Street 2011. These materials are for both Tier 1 enhancement and Tier 2 intervention.

Unlike many Tier 2 intervention programs, the Enhanced Core Reading Instruction materials are highly aligned with the core reading program. The Tier 2 intervention pre-teaches the content of the core reading program to increase students' success and confidence during Tier 1 instruction. Developed by researchers at the Center on Teaching and Learning, Enhanced Core Reading Instruction has been rigorously studied in nearly 50 elementary schools with hundreds of classrooms, and thousands of students. High-quality studies have demonstrated substantive improvements in the reading achievement of at-risk first-grades. Enhanced Core Reading Instruction materials are available on the CTL Marketplace.
