Great literacy instruction necessitates reading road miles – quality time spent deeply engaged in the pages of rigorous texts. Control the Game is a system for shared oral reading and the foundation for a thriving culture of reading in the classroom. Through carefully planned expressive and accountable daily reading, teachers can systematically build students’ fluency, text comprehension, and love of reading in the face of challenge.
Built to be presented in one, two, or three sessions, this Plug and Play enables participants to develop understanding and strengthen skills with:
- Establishing and sustaining a joyful system via the fundamentals of Control the Game
- Ensuring quality reading via fluency and decoding prompts
- Checking for Comprehension with Don’t Wait Questions
Our goal is for you to save time that you would otherwise spend creating a PD session from scratch and dive deep into the small concrete actions that advance your teachers’ skills from good to great. The Plug and Play provides you with:
✓ A fully customizable PowerPoint presentation with embedded videos of Control the Game in action
✓ Facilitator notes for what to say and do for each slide
✓ 11 video clips, with detailed analysis of each clip
✓ Carefully designed practice activities
✓ 2 video clips of TLAC members modeling the practice activities
✓ Participant Handouts for interactive note taking
✓ Next steps to ensure what’s learned in the session carries over into classroom
