Description

Today’s standards in Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects require that students comprehend and analyze complex texts and write arguments or informational papers focused on discipline-specific texts.  This Web seminar describes strategies piloted among teams of interdisciplinary teachers, grades 6-12, who implemented reading strategies for complex texts, including primary sources, and facilitated students in conducting research to answer a question, citing evidence to make their claims.  

Glimpse a few activities that motivated teachers to use geoscience texts that moved from simple graphics (such as a representation of fracking fluids) to a highly scientific article on methane contamination.  Discuss the role of a content specialist (geoscientist) in providing context for the readings, understanding the organizational patterns of writing for science, and approaching writing inductively. 

Expected Outcomes:

  1. Explore ways to engage interdisciplinary teams in implementing Common Core State Standards.
  2. Learn how to select texts to scaffold reading strategies, moving to highly complex texts.
