Close reading can raise energy and inspire deep thinking–or it can be a tedious bore! It all depends on how we approach it. Spend an engaging and thought-provoking day with Christopher Lehman, Founding Director of The Educator Collaborative, who will help you study practical methods for teaching the skills of deep analytical reading in ways that enchant students and help them become independent with these skills.
- Reflect on practices already in place
- Study methods of facilitating thoughtful work with texts, media and life
- Learn strategies to make student learning visible and provide opportunities for authentic assessment
- Practice using structures to increase independent close reading habits in all genres
Author and coauthor of several popular books for teachers, this workshop will draw on research and classroom practice from Falling In Love With Close Reading: Lessons for Analyzing Texts – And Life, co-authored with Kate Roberts.
