As educators have come to understand what new STEM and NGSS standards require,they are asking for support – “HOW do we do this?” WestEd is here to help. Join our expert science educators and Reading Apprenticeship facilitators Will Brown and Heather Howlett in a conversation about how to integrate literacy and learning routines into daily instruction. During this webinar you will be introduced to evidence-based teaching routines and see videos of science classrooms that illustrate how reframing reading as an investigation can help students gain solid STEM knowledge and reading comprehension skills simultaneously.
Who Should Attend?
Middle and High School STEM Educators, Principals, Academic Officers, Administrators, CIPD leaders, Instructional Support professionals, and Teacher Leaders.
About Reading Apprenticeship: Designed to support both academic and social-emotional learning, Reading Apprenticeship is an evidence-based professional learning and instructional model. We give subject area teachers new ways to engage students with complex text,and to apprentice them into discipline-specific ways of reading, writing, speaking, and reasoning. Reading Apprenticeship STEM teachers and their students have made the most significant gains in rigorous studies of teacher practice and student learning outcomes.
Free Curriculum Modules & Text Sets: Reading Apprenticeship is designed to work with any curriculum because it is focused on instructional routines; however, we know that STEM teachers struggle to find new ways to add more complex and engaging texts to their regular course work. Federally funded projects supported researchers and STEM teachers to work together to develop these free text sets and instructional materials.
