Training Description

This two-day workshop is peer coach/facilitators who want to provide support to teachers who have been trained to implement strategies from The Key Comprehension Routine. These strategies include: categorizing and main idea skills, text structure, top-down topic webs, two-column notes, student generated questions, and summaries.

Day 1 (Thursday, November 18, 2021)

The goals for this day are to help you understand and define your role as a peer coach, provide coaching techniques and resources, and offer suggestions for promoting implementation of Key Comprehension instructional strategies.

Day 2 (Tuesday, December 14, 2021)

The goals for this day are to clarify any questions you have about the strategies and instructional practices, and to help you become an “expert” in The Key Comprehension Routine so you will feel confident helping teachers with implementation.  The trainer will review key details about each component of the routine, and you will practice applying the strategies to sample text from different subject areas.
