Conferring with students about reading allows for clearer access to one-on-one, in-the-moment teaching and learning, yet it can feel intimidating or overwhelming. Kari Yates and Christina Nosek want to help. Here they have provided practical, reflective, student-centered teaching moves that you can use to develop an intentional, joy-filled conferring practice. 

To Know and Nurture a Reader is a get-going guide to conferring. The book includes step-by-step guidance that is also considerate of time and other classroom challenges, as well as: 

  • Numerous tools such as guiding questions, reproducible planning and note-taking documents; 
  • Classroom vignettes that pull you close to a reader and teacher in a conference setting; 
  • Video clips of classroom conferences to show what conferring looks like in action. 
The book breaks conferring into manageable chunks with specific goals for knowing and nurturing young readers, then puts all the pieces together with various classroom scenarios and examples. The tools, examples, and ideas in this book make conferring something every teacher can do right away and master with continued effort and practice.
