K-3 LITERACY LEADERS - ARI Lunch & Learn: Region 11 

Journey to Success for Reading & Literacy

The ARI Leadership Team will utilize the Journey to Success process to implement a plan of action for all K - 3 schools. This process outlines five ‘circles of influence’ that must be cohesive and function effectively for schools to be successful. In each webinar, discussion will revolve around the circles and their current influences on student learning. Sessions will be 30 minutes in length, with a 15-minute Q&A to follow.

Teaching Reading is Rocket Science

“The most fundamental responsibility of schools is teaching students to read. This we know: reading failure can be prevented in all but a small percentage of children. It is possible to teach most students how to read if we start early and follow the significant body of research showing which practices are most effective.”,  Dr. Louisa Moates.

I encourage you to be on the front line of teaching students to read. As a leader in your district or school it is critical that you pave the way to success for students. They are counting on you! ARI support and knowledge can positively impact your literacy efforts. Join us as we spin each circle of influence and help make application in real time!

Tailored Professional Development

Southeast Alabama Regional Inservice Center Teacher Consultants are prepared to work with our area school districts to design unique programs to meet specific needs. Leadership teams meet with administrators and leadership teams of teachers to determine content needs, delivery strategies, and scheduling. Tailored staff development provides districts with the necessary tools to meet the increasing demands of Writing Assessments, Subject Area Testing Programs, and Alabama Course of Study based assessments.

Classroom Demonstrations with Debriefing/Teacher Mentoring

Teacher consultants present process-based lessons in teachers' classrooms, aligned with state and district standards. Small groups of teachers are debriefed on the strategies used in the demonstrations. Classroom demonstrations have been so successful that schools are now requesting scheduled classroom demonstrations as an integral part of their professional development programs.

Book Study Groups

Southeast Alabama Regional Inservice Center (SEARIC) staff assist school faculties in choosing relevant reading material for a year-long book study. During regularly scheduled "book club" style meetings, SEARIC consultants facilitate discussions of the reading and when appropriate, model strategies for classroom implementation. Often book study sessions are held during teachers' planning times so that this program does not interfere with daily instructional time. 

On-line Book Study Groups

SEARIC staff select relevant reading material for a five-week book study that targets specific strategies. During scheduled on-line meetings, SEARIC staff facilitate discussions of the reading and when appropriate, model strategies for classroom implementation. Book study participants develop and share lesson implementing strategies spotlighted during the book study.
