Creating a Conferring Road Map: Preparing for Conversations with Student Readers Throughout the Year



Hosted by Gravity Goldberg and Renee Houser

When you sit down with student readers without a map it is easy to get lost in the book and leave the conference feeling like you didn’t make the impact you had hoped for. Knowing the teaching focuses, goals, and what to look and listen for across the year helps you feel confident and prepared to help each reader grow. In this webinar, authors Gravity Goldberg and Renee Houser of Teacher’s Toolkit for Independent Reading share what a conferring road map is, why it is essential to have one, and a process for creating your own.
