Web Seminars (On Demand)

Connecting College and Career Readiness Standards to Authentic Learning Opportunities

Presenter(s): Tonya Perry, Rodriquez Leonard, Mary James

This session focuses on the interrelated practices of close reading and academic writing, and the importance of supporting students across the disciplines in identifying and applying these practices in meaningful and connected ways. Presenters will share examples from their own practices, including:

  • Centering the curriculum around debate, increasing rigor and engagement in authentic ways.
  • Using mentor texts to model writing in the disciplines.
  • Engaging students around topics of social justice and civic engagement that matter to them.
  • Supporting teachers in acquiring the skills and content knowledge to lead this learning.
