Reading Instruction

Anita Archer Strategic Literacy Videos*

“Dr. Anita Archer is a talented author and beloved teacher of teachers. She has developed a video series series illustrating “strategic literacy” instruction as one of her many gifts to the educational community. Produced with support from the Sonoma County Office of Education, it is made available to the public at no cost.

The series addresses strategic literacy instruction in grades K-8 using a “research to practice” approach grounded in pragmatic real-world application. Each video is 4 to 10 minutes long, has a particular strategic focus, and was shot unrehearsed in real time.”*
