Short Texts with Big Impact
Short texts provide powerful teaching opportunities that support a variety of instructional needs, content areas, and reading levels. Some of our favorite classroom texts can take a great deal of instructional time to complete, leaving little time for in-depth discussions and analysis. Rich, short texts allow for immediate impact and repeated readings. Join us as we look at the unique benefits of short texts as part of our classroom instruction.
In this session, participants will:
- Discover the value of short texts in building literacy.
- Explore how to build and scaffold text-dependent questions and tasks.
- Practice strategies for short texts that support reading and writing objectives.
