This event has concluded.
Time: 8:30 AM - 3:30PM

Room: University Center 275A
This workshop will provide teachers training and practice with strategies to incorporate into informational text reading in science and all technical subjects. They will learn and practice how to draw inferences from images, features, and vocabulary, how to promote student synthesis of a reading, and how to activate and build on background knowledge. Workshop activities include modeling and practice with each strategy and application to the teacher's own subject area.
