Do your students complain that they don't remember or understand what they read? This webinar will explore strategies you can use with your students to encourage close readings of complex texts, analysis of both literary and informational texts, and synthesis of different texts that discuss the same topic. Join Catlin Tucker as she shows how you can support students with concrete strategies and introduce them to helpful technology that will improve their ability to understand both the explicit and implicit meaning of the texts you are using in your class!

AWESOME! This was sooooo good. I needed this....all of it. Thanks so much for some great information.
Annotation is one of the hardest concept for students to grasp. I liked the way it was explained. Newsela is something I will be checking out. Having the Diigo bar will be very helpful. I teach middle school, but I am in hopes of modifying to lower level than ninth and tenth.
