Sharing is caring!

This post is about a 40 minute reading strategies professional development video on Teachers Pay Teachers (TpT) by Wise Owl Factory. It has student PDFs and 2 renewal (CEU) units if approved by your school district. 

Reading Strategies Professional Development Video

New! Reading strategies professional development video with student documents. This PD video will allow teachers to learn and immediately be able to use the information the next day in the classroom. The supporting documents are student little-preparation PDFs. Mostly they just require printing one copy for teaching posters, and multiple copies for student materials. This link will open the supporting document preview file which has a freebie included. In the preview the over 260 pages of letter sized teaching posters as well as student bookmarks, pages, and games are shown.

I was a teacher of gifted education for a four years, and many of our units were teaching about and using higher level thinking skills. A few years later, I began to notice many of the HOTS were being included in the basal reading teacher guide, as well as other subject areas Also, my school selected reading strategies for about 4 years of professional development sessions so I learned even more about higher level thinking skills. I have studied them extensively and want to share this knowledge with others.

Thank you for reading, Carolyn
