Day Two: CAFE: From Assessment to Instruction

Get Ready, Assess, Teach: Reach Every Student

Step-by-step training on how to deliver differentiated reading instruction within the Daily 5 classroom, where students work and learn independently.

  • Methods and resources for assessing students on a routine basis
  • Components of a literacy block, including focus lessons, small-group lessons, and individual conferences
  • Building accountability into individual and group interactions

New insights on matching students with strategies that develop strong readers:

  • Creating the classroom CAFE Menu board your students post on all year as they learn new strategies
  • Protocol for goal-directed one-on-one conferences
  • How to organize and manage whole-group instruction
  • Enlisting families to reinforce learning strategies at home

This workshop includes models for how and how not to implement CAFE in your classroom.
