Student Engagement is FUNdamental!
Good readers are active readers. Research indicates that when students are engaged in the learning process, learning sticks. Students who have low comprehension levels need more work on monitoring their understanding. This fast paced workshop keeps participants engaged creating sample activities to take back and implement in the classroom. You will learn how to reinforce instruction with active learning strategies while addressing the standards and exciting students with activities that are “hands-on” and “minds-on.” You’ll also learn to take thinking to a higher level by increasing rigor in the classroom. The Gradual Release Model will be presented as participants learn creative ways to increase conceptual knowledge and critical thinking skills and provide additional academic support and learning opportunities to help low-achieving children master challenging curricula. All activities presented support RTI Tier II instruction. There’s no sitting still in this session.
