Implementing Close Reading: What Administrators and Teachers Need to Know and Do

About This Course

Everyone talks about implementing college and career skills aligned to close reading in their schools, but what does that really mean at a practical level for teachers in a classroom setting? This workshop demonstrates how to address key challenges facing schools when looking at implementing college and career readiness skills in the area of close reading.

Participants will learn: best practices for aligning instruction through generating text-dependent questions, how to design close reading exemplars, and how these practices directly prepare students for assessments. Participants will also gain a clear understanding of college and career readiness skills and the teacher-friendly tools they need to successfully implement standards in their classrooms.
