Let’s Get Real! Equipping Students to Succeed in Expository Text Reading

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 series, participants will deepen content knowledge and examine the TEKS SE’s for information texts. Each day, we will plan for helping students actively and strategically process texts.

Day 1: December 14, 2017 - Neely Room:  Learn how teachers and readers plan for comprehension

Day 2: February 15, 2018 - Conference Room C:  Learn how to teach students to summarize, make inferences, and process informational texts

Day 3: March 27, 2018 - Conference Room F:  Learn 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-use strategies and techniques, as well as a
deeper knowledge of the reading process.
