Supporting Independent Reading, Choice, and Stamina

Course Details

Helping students learn to choose books and develop stamina are important to developing independent readers. This field experience offers opportunities to see minilessons, small group instruction, team meetings and a share session that support independence in readers.


Classroom observations are some of the most valuable learning experiences. Yet there is no way you can see everything when visiting a live classroom. Our Field Experience collection allows you to virtually discover diverse field experiences and see instructional strategies that pique your interest, as well as learn about the art of teaching. Additionally, if you need a field experience that works with your schedule and accommodates for social distancing, Choice Literacy’s Classroom Field Experience course is the perfect fit!

The Field Experience collection is organized by topics and grade levels, including more than 15 unique field experiences. Each field experience includes 6-10 video observations and several companion articles to deepen your understanding of pedagogy and inspire reflective practice.

Whether you are a classroom teacher looking for inspiration, a preservice teacher hoping to see pedagogy in action, an instructional leader searching for top-notch models, or a professor striving to find rich observation opportunities, this course is for you. Our Field Experience collection is curated by topics and grade levels.
