Hazel Brown and Brian Camboune first published "Read and Retell" in 1987. The book has continued to sell, and has been used by generation of teachers and researcher on both sides of the Pacific. Revisit the retelling strategy and explore ways in which it has been extended by teachers in today's classrooms. Briefly explore the principle underpinning the original "Read & Retell" initiative through a mix of interactive online teaching, hands-on exploration of variations of the procedure, simple action-research in your own classroom, and face-to-face discussion and sharing. Learn how Australian, Canadian, and U.S. teachers, consultants, and reading specialists have adopted and used the strategy in a range of classrooms. Witness how the strategy can be modified and used to help students across a range of grade levels. Special emphasis will be on the value of retelling as an assessment tool that can provide accurate and reliable data on students' growth across a range of literacy areas. Target audience: educators K-6.
