Deep Dive: Join the Xtreme Reading PD Cadre

Thursday

Brazilian B

Xtreme Reading is changing students lives, and teachers have reported that it has changed their lives too!  The biggest challenge, however, has been preparing those teachers for providing the one-year curriculum with "Xtreme" fidelity.  This session is designed for those SIM professional developers who would like to instruct teachers in how to teach the Xtreme Course to students with the level of fidelity needed to get results.  Participants will receive tips and tools that can be used in teacher workshops. 

Participants will have the opportunity to purchase an Xtreme Instructor's Set of materials for the discounted price of $800. Participants should visit https://sim.ku.edu/xtreme-reading in advance and view the Video FAQs and the Narrated Overview PowerPoint to prepare for this session.
