DATE | Wednesday, September 24, 2014
TIME | 04:00–05:00 pm EDT
As literacy in the disciplines has been at the forefront of Common Core implementation conversations, this webinar will discuss key elements of disciplinary literacies instruction that include considerations for instructional design and assessment. Approaches for bridging content area literacy instruction with disciplinary literacies instruction will be discussed in terms of texts, habits of thinking and practice, and discourse unique to the disciplines.
These programs offer a sustained approach to professional development, integrating a variety of tools from podcasts to live chats to classroom videos.
Investigations offer brief, self-paced online professional learning about the teaching shifts needed to help students prepare to meet college and career-ready standards for learning.
Facilitated Online Courses will guide you using classroom videos and professional texts to encourage collaboration around critical questions about literacy learning and school improvement.
