Not an English teacher… Need Ideas on How to Support Grade Level Reading & Vocabulary in Your Content Area?
July 13 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
This training is designed as a “train the trainer” model, so participants can teach the strategies to the teachers in their individual buildings. As a participant, you will experience explicit instruction in vocabulary strategies. The vocabulary strategies can be easily embedded within all content areas. Close reading opportunities of informational texts will also be provided. Following each experience, we will share the teacher side of implementation and how you can apply the strategies and experiences in each and every classroom, no matter the subject. The vocabulary instruction and close reading strategies will lead to higher student engagement and better comprehension which will then lead to higher reading achievement.
The session will be held in Suite 375 of the Victory Building, 1401 West Capitol Ave., Little Rock, AR 72201.
Parking is available in a garage located on 6th Street, which runs parallel to Capitol Avenue. The garage is connected to the Victory Building via a second-floor walkway. You will need $5 to cover all-day parking or $1 per hour for hourly parking. Metered parking also is available.
Presenters: Sherry Williams and Tabitha Riendeau
