Join our team of teacher-authors on July 27 for a series of live webinars!
Carol Gaab will demonstrate how to connect to the character(s) and the text, how to increase comprehension and how to inspire HOT (higher order thinking). Learn how to prepare the class using strategic pre-reading activities and how to engage even your most reluctant readers/learners. Carol will highlight key events from each book in the series and share a host of engaging ‘tricks’ to increase emotional engagement, deepen comprehension and facilitate SLA (second language acquisition). Although this webinar will focus on the Brandon Brown series specifically, strategies shared will be applicable to any read.
Kristy Placido will demonstrate how to generate interest and motivate students to read a novel by creating multi-faceted units using a novel as the core of the curriculum. Learn how to use a variety of resources to build comprehensive units that will prepare students for AP/upper level study and result in extraordinary results on the AAPPL (ACTFL Assessment of Performance toward Proficiency in Languages). Kristy will share powerful tips for incorporating #authres, such as music, commercials, movie trailers and a myriad of other resources into your repertoire.
Carrie Toth will demonstrate how to plan for a read with IB and AP themes in mind. Learn how to prepare students for any read, how to build background knowledge and how to weave rich cultural components into your instruction. Get the inside scoop on how Carrie’s students achieved amazing results on the AAPPL (ACTFL Assessment of Performance toward Proficiency in Languages) using compelling leveled readers like Bianca Nieves and La Calaca Alegre. Discover how easy it is to meet ACTFL’s World Readiness Standards and facilitate SLA in the WL classroom!
