Comprehension and Critical Thinking Through Conversation (LA)
How can literacy be used as a tool to help students think, talk and problem solve? How can reading aloud and picture books teach the skills of conversation, questioning, and thoughtful listening? How can we assess our students’ understanding?
This workshop will look at the way teachers can talk with students and lead them in interactive discussions about texts and topics across the curriculum. You will learn strategies for teaching verbal collaboration and creativity, tools ever more necessary in the age of technology.
This workshop is appropriate for teachers K through 4 – yes, even Kindergarten!
