Let’s Get Real! Equipping Students to Succeed in Expository Text Reading

Expository text reading accounts for the majority of reading we do as adults, yet reporting
category 3 on the STAAR test results indicate that this is the type of reading students struggle with the most. Learning how to read to learn requires the reader to intentionally select skills
and strategies in order to think within, beyond, and about factual texts. In this three part
series, participants will deepen content knowledge and examine the TEKS SE’s for information texts. Each day, we will plan for helping students actively and strategically process texts.
Day 1 Learn how teachers and readers plan for comprehension
Day 2 Learn how to teach students to summarize, make inferences, and process informational texts
Day 3 Learn strategies for teaching students to go beyond the words on the page and think
critically about texts

Each day, participants will leave with ready-to-use strategies and techniques, as well as a
deeper knowledge of the reading process.

Dates of training:

Day 1 -  December 14

Day 2 – February 15

Day 2 – March 27

Just a reminder – These are not stand alone days.  It is a 3 day training.
