If you are teaching remotely or in person, this bundle includes a hand picked combination of 29 Story Grammar Marker® materials and tools for the most effective implementation of this methodology.There are currently remote, hybrid, and/or in-person models for teaching and providing therapy.Additional hurdles were created for all of us by these different delivery modes.How can we focus on leveling the playing field for our kids, teaching grade-level content, and ensuring they have the skills needed to achieve along with their peers?The problem can’t be solved with a hack, a quick fix or a no-prep lesson.The solution needs a scope and sequence, as well as a research and evidence base.It must work with all modes of delivery.

There is a unique combination of materials that can be used in remote as well as in person teaching and therapy.

Dates to be announced will be three hours each day and include an extensive e-book with templates, progress monitoring forms, lessons, and activities.

Narrative development is the focus of Story Grammar Marker®.Informational text is found in content area sources such as websites, news shows, sciences, social studies, history, current events and true fact books.

It is difficult to teach expository text.An evidence-based method for integrating informational text structure strategies and underlying oral language skills into your instruction can be found in our Master Class.ThemeMaker text structure strategies have helped students think about, remember, and use the information they are learning, rather than learning isolated skills and memorize facts.The Master Class will teach students how to use background knowledge, grow oral language for informational text, make connections among and within texts, find the main idea, learn new vocabulary, and write informational passages.

ThemeMaker® maps, hands-on and digital resources, and lessons will be used to conduct activities using selections of literature, science and social studies.

ThemeMaker® is a unique approach that organizes the already familiar “icons” of the Story Grammar Marker® into concrete mental models of 7 informational text structures.

Students build both their higher-order thinking skills and their knowledge at the same time when these text structure strategies and corresponding transition words and phrases are integrated into the instruction of informational text.
