Skilled readers weave together vocabulary, background knowledge and an understanding of language structures to make sense of what they read. With such limited time in our elementary classrooms, how can we attend to these essential aspects of reading instruction, alongside building foundational skills? Join Rebecca Abbott, Professional Learning Lead from UC Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science, to learn more about how a literacy-rich, phenomena-based approach to teaching science can tap into students’ natural curiosity about the world, provide a content-rich context for learning, and simultaneously support your ELA goals.
This edWebinar will be of interest to kindergarten through middle school teachers, librarians, school and district leaders, STEM coordinators, summer school coordinators, and technology coordinators. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
