Linda Karamatic has been teaching students and coaching teachers for over 30 years. She’s currently a building-based literacy coach in Lacey, Washington.
Linda Karamatic works with two readers who are going to read the same book and support each other with the use of accuracy strategies.
Joan Moser confers with Colin, a first grader who is working on the skills of fluency and accuracy.
In this video, Sean confers with a second grader who is working on reading the actual print words vs. substituting words that make sense in context, but may alter the meaning slightly. She begins by summarizing her series book and then they work toward the goal. Sean reinforces what is really important for her as a reader.
