Social-Emotional Learning Integrated with Academic Literacy Equals Secondary Students' Common Core Success

Recorded on November 07, 2013

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

In this archived webinar, you will 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.

Specifically, you will learn:

  • 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
