Description: Teachers and coaches will learn how to ramp up the rigor in their English Language Arts instruction through a close reading protocol. First, participants will learn how to craft the right questions for text that require students to consistently engage in higher order thinking; through these questioning techniques, an "evidence-based" culture will emerge. Next, attendeeswill learn how to develop "Habits of Discussion" among their students, enabling them to engage in high-level academic discourse. This is a critical first step in that if we change how students talk, we can change how they write. Last, participants will learn a close reading protocol that includes a layered reading approach, classroom discourse, and a rigorous student writing component. Attendees will gain access to the following tools: a Habits of Discussion scope and sequence, a three day close reading protocol, and a high-quality constructed response rubric.

Facilitated by: Sabrina Hodges
