GUIDELINES FOR GROUP PRESENTATIONS ON A TEACHER’S GUIDE TO A STANDARDIZED READING TESTS (5%) Purpose: Reading specialists are often responsible for staff development, and this assignment will provide you with an opportunity to collaborate with a group of colleagues in planning for a short “staff development” occasion. Procedure 1. We will all read the entire book, and tease out key insights and strategies as we go. 2. Working in five groups, you will lead conversations around chapters 5-9 in Part II, “A Curriculum for Test Preparation.” 3. As we will have all read the chapter, it is your role to actively engage us and extend our understanding of the content of your chapter. 4. Each group will have 20 minutes for their group-led conversations. 5. You can structure the 20-minutes as you wish (e.g., whole class, small groups), but each member of the presenting group must have an active role. 6. If you would like the class to do something in preparation for your conversation, you need to let us know in advance, either in class on November 5 or via email no later than November 7. 7.
