Developing habits for independent reading takes time, explicit instruction, and practice. This course is designed to help school and district leaders build or enhance a schoolwide culture in which independent reading of self-selected texts occurs daily in all classrooms and at home. You will explore the use of surveys and a classroom visit instrument to determine the status of independent reading throughout a school community and learn to synthesize these data to develop a plan to address needs. Additionally, you will learn and be able to apply resources to look-for implementation of instructional practices taught and discussed during professional learning. Finally, you will review what worked and set a course for next steps.
