Let's Get Real! Equipping Students to Succeed in Expository Text - 009186
Expository text reading accounts for the majority of reading we do as adults, yet reporting category 3 on the STAAR test results indicate that this is the type of reading students struggle with the most. Learning how to read to learn requires the reader to intentionally select skills and strategies in order to think within, beyond, and about factual texts. In this three-part ZOOM series with Kelly Harmon, participants will deepen content knowledge and examine the TEKS SEs for information texts. Day 1 will focus on how teachers and readers plan for comprehension. Day 2 will be spent learning how to teach students to summarize, make inferences, and process informational texts. On Day 3, teachers will leave with strategies for teaching students to go beyond the words on the page and think critically about texts. Each day, participants will leave with ready-to-implement strategies.
