Keys to Close Reading (Live Virtual Training)

Keys to Literacy Event

Live, Virtual Professional Development

Literacy standards emphasize the use of challenging text at all grade levels and for students to apply close reading skills. Close reading means figuring out what a text says by thinking critically about the words and ideas in the text. Most students need explicit instruction for how to read text closely, and educators can provide this instruction by planning and conducting close reading lessons.  During this professional development, educators learn how to plan and conduct a close reading lesson for students in grades 2-12.

Virtual-Live Format: The Keys trainer will use Zoom video conferencing to deliver this training in an interactive format using features such as breakout rooms, chat, and Google shared documents.
