Reading Coaches: Presenting a Session. Basic Training Series.
Simpson County Schools, Franklin, KY.
Part of a basic training series, this booklet describes presenting 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 lists elements of the Reading Coaches model, and a session plan and conversation questions for a children's book. The booklet then describes each of the Reading Coaches phases: Coaching Data (documenting the book shared during the coaching session); the comment section (providing feedback to the facilitator to improve session plans); the "before reading" phase (introducing the book and identifying target words); the "during reading" phase (building oral vocabulary, reading along strategies, and word attack skills); and the "after reading" phase (presenting conversation questions and follow-up activities).
