Face to Face Trainings
This one-day workshop will address Common Core ELA Shift 4 Text-based Answers and how this impacts the instruction of English language learners. The workshop will model and use various activities to demonstrate a close reading as an instructional support and practice providing teachers with a routine to use with all English proficiency levels. Participants will gain understanding of text complexity and text selection appropriate for close reading and developing text dependent questions. The workshop will focus on the research of Fisher and Frey. Participants will receive an informational text for use in classroom instruction.
