Sometimes You’re the Bug – Sometimes You’re the Windshield: An Adventure into Utilizing Running Records in the Middle Grades

Audience: 3rd - 5th Grade Teachers/Specialists

Presenter(s): Barbara Schubert

Length: 80 minutes

Level: Intermediate Conceptual

Session Description:

Upper elementary teachers don’t always see the value in using a Running Record to inform instruction.  Careful use can prevent students from falling behind in their ability to grapple with complex text.  It’s all about moving from the procedural level to the conceptual level working with Running Records – more like “know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em”.  (And yes, know when to walk away and when to run!)
