Reading Coaches: Creating a Session. Basic Training Series.
Simpson County Schools, Franklin, KY.
Part of a basic training series, this booklet describes creating a Reading Coaches (tm) session based on the simple concept of reading good books with children while engaging them in conversation about the book. The booklet notes that exemplary practices found in the SLICE-CORPS program (an AmeriCorps program) were synthesized to develop the Reading Coach model. After an introduction and a list of the core principles of the Reading Coaches program, the booklet describes the three steps of the student intake process, and the roles and responsibilities of Reading Coaches and Reading Coach Facilitators. The booklet then describes each of the Reading Coaches phases in creating a session plan: Coaching Data (documenting the book shared during the coaching session); the "before reading" phase (introducing the book and identifying target words); the "during reading" phase (building oral vocabulary and prediction questions); the "after reading" phase (presenting conversation questions and follow-up activities); and the comment section (providing feedback to the facilitator to improve session plans).
