In this edWebinar, ELA educators and leaders learn about how the Science of Reading and Learning Science has practical application in English and language arts instruction to help support all learners at the middle and high school levels. As educators and students are still feeling the impact of interrupted learning, applying the underpinnings of the Science of Reading to the study of literature and informational texts will help students bridge the gap and get back on track. Viewers learn how to integrate the ideas into their classroom instruction. Topics discussed include:

  • Applying essential questions to make learning relevant
  • Implementing the practice of close reading
  • Engaging in collaborative discussions
  • Utilizing effective annotation and notetaking skills for collecting text-based evidence
  • Integrating language and writing using choice in project-based assessments

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to middle and high school teachers, school and district leaders, department chairs, and curriculum leaders.
