The reading behavior checklist is so valuable! I work at a very small private school and we haven’t utilized anything like this when thinking about our reading instruction. I will definitely be sharing this with my administrator!

I want to print out the resources in this course. They are excellent and I think having them in hand/in a notebook to access as I learn will be helpful.
