Literacy in the Content Areas

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Do you have students who struggle when they read the subject content expected in grades 7-12? This session will provide a framework that content/subject teachers can use to structure their lessons to support all students in developing strategies to better understand difficult text. Teachers will be provided with a toolbox of strategies they can use as a part of their regular instruction that will assist their students to understand the subject content.
