First Day to Test Day

June 3 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

What you’ll learn during this workshop:

  • Demystify the inference process in order to answer comprehension questions about complex texts.
  • Attack questions with test-taking tips to support finding the “best” and “most likely” answers.
  • Define the ingredients to a strong constructed response.
  • Propel students beyond simply stating evidence to explaining it.
  • Identify a step-by-step process for reading and annotating multiple texts in one sitting.
  • Dissect how readers integrate ideas learned from multiple sources to generate a new thought or synthesis.
  • Provide explicit instruction on academic vocabulary to support students in decoding and responding to prompts.
  • Build on the students’ knowledge of short constructed responses to generate long, extended responses.

After participating in the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Target the thinking that students must execute when reading any text.
  • Reveal to students that their thinking must also be communicated in writing.
  • Advance students beyond making single-text inferences to generating multi-text synthesis.
  • Raise the rigor to reading multiple texts and composing extended responses — all in one sitting.

This workshop is perfect for:

  • Grades 3-12 ELA Teachers
  • Grades 6-12 Content-Area Teachers
  • Literacy Coaches/Coordinators
  • Title I Teachers/Directors
  • ELL Teachers
  • Special Education Teachers
  • K-12 High-Ability Teachers
