This special bundle includes a hand picked combination of 29 Story Grammar Marker® materials and tools for the most effective implementation of this methodology whether you are teaching remotely or in person! Currently, educators are faced with remote, hybrid, and/or in-person models for teaching and providing therapy. These various “modes” of delivery created additional hurdles for all of us. How can we possibly focus on leveling the playing field for our kids, teaching grade-level content, and ensuring they have the skills needed to achieve along with their peers? As we know, the problem cannot be solved with a hack, a quick fix or a no-prep lesson. The solution must have a scope and sequence, as well as a research and evidence base. It must work seamlessly with all modes of delivery, with all students, and with all curricula.
The unique combination of materials that can be used in remote as well as in-person teaching and therapy are:
The Story Grammar Marker® Manual with methodology, research, lessons, activities, maps
Hands-on intervention materials such as: SGM® braided manipulatives, large icon magnets, small icon magnets, rubber icon stamps, Critical Thinking Triangle® student maps, and manipulative components
Teaching tools such as mini-posters, large posters, digital icons, virtual backgrounds, and the Cohesive Tie Jargon
Progress Monitoring Forms (which can be used hard copy or on DocHub) in the 39-page eBook Zoom into Documentation
