Reading and Writing in the Content Areas
I'm Not a Reading Teacher!

This Workshop is specifically for Social Studies and Science Teachers.

Important Session Information:

It is becoming more and more evident that a student must understand what he/she is reading before they can apply that understanding.  In the Social Studies and Science classroom, students are not using their comprehension skills or inferencing skills.  So their application of the knowledge is suffering.

In this workshop, teachers will be taken through different activities, a discussion of those activities, and given time to plan their own activities for their classrooms.  Through the exploration of the process and discussion with other educators, teachers will come to understand how to better utilize reading strategies in their classrooms to improve students' knowledge and skills. 

Dimension 1.1: Standards and Alignment, Dimension 1.2: Data and Assessment, Dimension 1.3: Knowledge of Students, Dimension 1.4: Activities, Dimension 2.1: Achieving Expectations, Dimension 2.2: Content Knowledge and Expertise, Dimension 2.3: Communication, Dimension 2.4: Differentiation, Dimension 2.5: Monitor and Adjust
