Reading Is Thinking! Engaging the Minds of Advanced Readers
Limited Capacity seats available

In the teacher’s hands, models from William & Mary Language Arts units challenge the minds of advanced readers. The thinking models paired with complex texts encourage students to make interdisciplinary connections using the concept of change, while at the same time developing their skills in literary analysis, argumentative writing, and research. Session participants will understand how to implement the thinking models, and how the Integrated Curriculum Model, in every unit, challenges advanced readers. Handouts provided.
