Zoom Out to Zoom In: Close Reading and Constructing Metaphors for Gifted Learners

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Let's take gifted learners outside the text with primary sources, personal connections, and extended metaphors to help find their way to a closer reading of the text. We'll make literacy both hands-on and personal on our pathway to finding deeper meaning in language. As participants in this session, we'll quickly work our way through an example unit using Lois Lowry's wonderful picture book, "Crow Call." Then we'll take a look at additional ways to help foster a closer reading of text--hands-on and interactive methods that will keep our readers engaged. Each participant will receive a full six-hour unit plan for "Crow Call."
