a BIG day

On Monday I have a VERY BIG day! My school has contracted ETA to do some guided reading training. My classroom was chosen to have 10 first grade teachers, 2 asstaint supers, and 2 principals to observe a GR lesson in. Well, when the lady found out that I do reader's workshop so told me that I needed to do a mini-lesson and then she will lead the GR group while my students read (just like I do). Anyways-I will be demoing RW to 14 people who have no clue what it is. I know that when it's done during the de-brief everyone will say, "How do you know they are reading?" and I need a good answer! How would you answer? Personally, I know they are reading b/c I spent 1 1/2 months teaching procedures and that they need to be reading and guess what they do! but I need a good answer to prove what I'm doing is right!

So give me your answer, "How do you know they are reading?"

Do you hold them accountable by sticky notes or reading journals? That would show accountability -- also through conferencing, you can tell.

if you have a conference with a child and they have had their stack of books for a week, you can tell if they know them or haven't looked at them by their fluency and comprehension. (Honestly-- I don't know if that's ever happened to me before... even the kids who are hard to persuade to get words to paper have no attention problems reading)

Plus- even when you aren't meeting with them, you are keeping your thumb on the pulse of the room by walking past to your next conference.
