CIESC and ESC Discounts Available

Our goal is to create authentic tasks that allow students to come up with their own answers rather than choose from provided answers, and demonstrate an authentic purpose for reading.  After providing an overview of the Science of Reading Comprehension and Building Thinking Classrooms’ first three moves, we will focus on reviewing standards and texts to build authentic comprehension activities that will encourage students to:

  • Solve real-world problems
  • Meet design challenges
  • Explore abstract questions
  • Conduct investigations
  • Take positions on issues

This workshop will allow educators to learn how to apply these ideas effectively in their classrooms to help their students become more engaged and motivated learners.
