When executed correctly, anchor charts are a visual and tangible reminder of how to do something new and complex. They reveal choices, provide strategies, and foster independence—all of which build a student’s perseverance and grit. However, the potential impact of this instructional tool often goes untapped.

Watch this edWebinar to learn how to make anchor charts an integral component to effective instruction—regardless of grade level, content area, or classroom setting. Viewers:

  • Learn of the purposes, functions, and types of anchor charts
  • Understand how to build well-planned anchor charts during instruction
  • Acquire various methods to share and store paper-based and digital charts

This reocorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 English language arts teachers, school and district leaders, and instructional coaches.
