As teachers, we know the importance of students' being able to decode text, but decoding alone does not equate to reading. Students must be able to decode and acquire meaning from those words to have a meaningful interaction with the text. The Reading for Deeper Meaning workshop will help you not only better understand the process, but also gain strategies of "making the invisible (thinking), visible" for your students. This workshop will help you to explore the world of close reading to support readers in reading workshop, guided reading, and independent reading. Come learn how to to transform and create new understandings and connections for your students!
Who should attend: 2nd-8th literacy teachers, interventionists, special education teachers, instructional coaches, administrators, reading specialists
