According to Janet Angelis, Associate Director of the Center on English Learning and Achievement (CELA),
“In the current rush to support reading achievement in the primary grades, we as a nation are in danger of abandoning a generation of children. These are the students in grades four and higher who need to learn and practice a whole set of complex reading, writing and language skills so that they can handle the variety of texts they will encounter and produce as they go through school and beyond.”
This profound statement is indicative of the need for critical literacy instruction for students in all subject areas. However, many Science, Math, Social Studies, and CTAE teachers struggle with how to address literacy in their classroom when they have so much content to cover. Our workshops are designed to use “hands on” strategies to not only deconstruct existing literacy standards, but how to engage all students in all content areas with literacy.
Our dynamic facilitators, have experience in elementary, middle, and high school in all content areas and can customize our workshop to focus on your needs such as topics from:
- Deconstructing the Literacy Standards in a Core Content Area
- Teaching Writing When You’re Not the Writing Teacher
- How to Use Graphic Organizers Based In Literacy
- Rubrics That Demand Students to M.O.V.E.
These fun, engaging workshops are a great starting point for schools on the journey to make sure their teachers across the content areas have the resources needed to be literacy rock stars.
