How can you help diverse students participate successfully in the complex literacy practices required of the Common Core State Standards?

In this webinar, you can find out how building students’ literacy skills—within a collaborative classroom context—supports all students to engage with academically challenging text, take a problem-solving stance, persevere, and succeed.

Register for this webinar to learn about:

  • How to engage students in the metacognitive conversations that introduce them to their own intriguing reading and thinking processes
  • How to give students the learning experiences that build resilience, stamina, confidence, and competence
  • How to integrate, and therefore accelerate, literacy and subject area learning (in science, history, and English language arts)
  • How the New Haven (CA) Unified School District implemented these strategies, and what teachers and students learned

Cynthia Greenleaf, WestEd presenter and Co-Director of the agency’s Strategic Literacy Initiative, will be joined by science teacher Abby Noche from New Haven Unified School District.

    Based on the title there seems to be an emphasis on the social emotional learning dimension but I do not see it reflected in the objectives in terms of the presentation. Will it be woven into the presentation?


    • Colleen Montoya says:

      Todd, thank you for your comment and interest in this webinar. Social-emotional learning is indeed woven throughout the presentation. We’ve since revised the announcement to make the goals of the presentation even more clear to our web visitors. We hope you’ll be able to join us for this webinar!

  4. Diana Hutcheson says:

    Is this for a particular level – elementary, middle, or high school? As a high school teacher, I find it frustrating when the focus is on a level that is not pertinent to my students’ needs.

    • Colleen Montoya says:

      Diana, we are so sorry the audience for this webinar was not clear. Our habit is to combine middle school and high school as “secondary.” The webinar will span grades 6–12. We hope you can join us for the webinar!
