Many students float on the surface of words, never really plumbing the deeper meanings and ideas below. How do you coax them below that surface to help them develop the sophisticated reading comprehension they will need to survive in an increasingly complex world?

Brain research clearly shows that we understand more of what we discuss, experience and teach others. Every teacher needs a large arsenal of tactics that keep students in the experiential, hands-on, deep-learning zone.

In this webinar, Gayle Gregory, author of more than a dozen books on differentiated literacy learning strategies, will ground you in brain research on learning and retention and give you lots of effective and easy-to-use tactics to bring back to the classroom.

According to the new Common Core State Standards in the U.S., Grade 6-12 students need to be able to construct deep understanding through fluency development, close reading and examination of the text and a good vocabulary. Students need to be able to do this not just with narrative texts but with informational texts that cross the curriculum.

Webinar Topics:

  • What kinds of activities lead to highest retention
  • Strategies for developing vocabulary–word work and vocabulary tiers
  • Improving fluency in grade 6 and beyond
  • Close reading and questioning techniques
  • Working with diverse learners
  • Gender issues in literacy
