| The participant will take a peek in real classrooms with video footage of students engaged in the reading and writing of informational texts. K-2 will explore the many strategies of approach (Interactive read-aloud, shared reading, guided reading and independent reading) for providing multiple opportunities of students to engage with informational texts. Some of the strategies to be addressed in the 3rd-6th session will include text structure, text features and academic vocabulary. Additionally, there will be a segment addressing “doze reading” with tools for creating text dependent questions and crafting written responses closely tied to the text.|
