There is an optional 1.5 CEUs for registered participants in the Area 3 Writing Project’s institute.
Join colleagues for three days of collaboration about close reading and explore how we can lay the groundwork in K-2 classrooms for success in later grades. Gain strategies for making close reading accessible to all students, including pre-readers. Learn to use fiction and nonfiction mentor texts to craft lessons that include text-dependent questions, anchor charts and writing tasks that address the three text types outlined in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Receive lesson exemplars and a flexible lesson planning template to get you started.
