QAR Live! Sessions
Looking for a way to jumpstart COMPREHENSION INSTRUCTION at your elementary or middle school?
QAR Live! seminars from SchoolRise® bring your teachers up-to-date, giving them the knowledge and confidence they need to boost students' comprehension.
QAR Live! seminars are conducted by Taffy Raphael, the creator of QAR, and SchoolRise® colleagues.
Dr. Raphael invented QAR to provide teachers with the language needed to discuss comprehension with their students.
QAR is a thoroughly tested approach, proven effective in improving students' comprehension for the past 30 years.
Through QAR Live! seminars, teachers learn the basics of QAR, as well as adaptations that work with English Language Learners and special education students.
What better way to boost your students' literate thinking, as required to meet the Common Core State Standards?
"We all got so much out of the session with you. There were a lot of 'aha' moments."
