On Monday, March 14th, I gave a presentation with my four classmates and my professor in the MAED READ program through ECU. Here is a link to the handout from our session.

On Tuesday, March 15, I gave a presentation with Dawn Reynolds, a 2nd grade teacher from my school. We only gave out one handout and a short piece of text that was used for an activity, but I wanted to share some other resources for Reciprocal Teaching. I have uploaded more handouts and resources to my professional e-portfolio which you are free download if you wish...here is the link:
In our presentation, we also shared several sources for finding short text as Reciprocal Teaching works best with short pieces of text. Here is a link my one of earlier blog posts about where to find online based text.
In our presentation, we also showed a short clip of a guided reading lesson where a teacher was leading the students in the strategies of Reciprocal Teaching. Here is a link to that video:
If you have any questions about our presentations, please feel free to email any one of us. Our email addresses are on the last slide of our presentations.

The best part about presenting at the conference was getting to listen to the opening Key Note Speaker, Lester Laminack...one of my favorite children's authors.
