Raising Rigor in Reading: Complex Texts in the English Classroom
The Common Cores State Standards in English Language Arts have energized the
profession with discussion about complex texts. But wise English teachers know
there’s more to it than simply assigning complex texts and hoping for the best. Nancy
Frey will draw on her experience as a San Diego teacher-leader who implements
practices to raise rigor in schools statewide. Annotation, text-dependent questions,
close reading, fostering text-based discussion... this session promises to be chock full
of practical information grounded in cutting-edge research!
Pre-registration Deadline is October 6, 2014
$40 for GSDCTE/CATE members;
