In addition, participants will have the opportunity to learn how to extend the Listening and Learning read-aloud lesson’s across the day in order to promote a deeper understanding of complex content. Participants will apply learned strategies to a dispersed domain (Important People in History) in order to close knowledge gaps that may exist.
