About The Event

What is Jen's ideal daily schedule for your classroom? Find out here!!

Throughout the day, Jen will disccus low prep, high yield strategies to implement balanced literacy instruction. By using her ideal schedule for a 3-5 classroom as a framework, Jen will refresh you and hit the high points on what a day in a classroom at Jen Jones Elementary would look like!

Preparing students for the 21st century means preparing students for their future. At a minimum, we must prepare students to be critical thinkers, using academic structures of cooperation, collaboration and communication, so students have the maximum amount of practice, success & failure opportunities to become problem-solvers, strategic and proficient readers and writers and independent and confident students/adults.  Throughout the day, Jen will present a variety of low-prep/high yield instructional strategies that are simple and free to implement, but  require a higher level of instructional accountability than most teachers and students are accustomed to.

An overview of the most important reading standards will be presented, as well as more student-centered ownership of strategies for reading engagement and reading achievement. Use the most effective vocabulary strategies for reading comprehension as the research showing the correlation between vocabulary development and reading comprehension is high and wide. Voice and choice and authentic audience are also essential elements of the 21st century classroom, especially when it comes to text and topic selection for reading, writing and research. Ditch the worksheets & test prep programs to teach reading skills and strategies, grammar and conventions, and use high quality literature with rich language and illustrations instead.

Jen speaks on these topics and more, to schools and districts all over the country. She is highly sought-after and teachers in her workshops have said “this was the best professional development we’ve ever had.”
