This video workshop with auxiliary classroom videos will show intermediate elementary teachers how to help their students transition from "learning to read" to "reading to learn." Eight half-hour workshop video programs feature leading experts who discuss current research on learning to read and teaching a diverse range of students. The research is illustrated by clips from real classroom lessons, allowing teachers to better understand and apply the research in their own classes. The entire classroom lessons are included in eight additional video programs for optional further exploration of each topic. A five-minute introductory program provides a preview of all the components of the workshop with highlights from each program. It can be used to familiarize viewers with the goals of the workshop or for guidance on selecting a topic from the workshop videos.
