Dig into the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Reading. Participants explore the topics of reading comprehension, text complexity, and informational texts. They learn ways to select appropriate texts, materials, and strategies so students are supported in meeting the high standards embedded within the CCSS. Strategies for teaching English learners (ELs) are also referenced during the workshop.
By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
• Select appropriate reading materials to scaffold students to higher standards.
• Apply grade-appropriate instructional strategies that enrich comprehension of complex text, vocabulary, and fluency.
• Incorporate reading comprehension strategies specific to informational texts.
• Support students in achieving the CCSS reading standards.
