Today I presented at the North Carolina Reading Association 2014 Conference.  The conference theme was Pathways to Literacy: Looking Back to Move Forward.  My presentation was on a lesson framework that also works as an independent reading strategy for close reading of informational texts.  The framework is called TOADS and stands for Title, Organization, Author’s purpose, Diction, and Summary of main idea.  It can be modified for early elementary all the way to AP 12.  You can see the Prezi here: http://prezi.com/qwhxanafeygd/?utm_campaign=share&utm_medium=copy
