Navigating Text Complexity

Are you struggling to help your students master text complexity for your grade level? This training is designed for teachers who are interested in learning best practices for helping students master text complexity. Teachers will learn strategies for assessing text complexity, asking and answering text-dependent questions, using textual evidence, teaching important standards-related and vocabulary building strategies. An emphasis is placed upon strategies and techniques for helping students learn how to read both narrative and information texts closely.   Text exemplars are shared along with specific tools for analyzing texts.

Teachers will also learn questioning techniques specific for students who struggle as well as assisting these students in comprehending the complex text they will encounter.
