Conference Audience

Session 2

Supporting your interaction with text: Understanding complexity

Description

This session will organize participants to analyze a Listening and Learning text around four dimensions of complexity: knowledge, vocabulary, structure, and literary devices. This session will engage participants in an analysis process that can be seen as a model for how teachers could approach the Listening and Learning texts in their own planning and as they consider where to emphasize and adapt lessons. This session will provide participants multiple opportunities to engage in this analysis process, including a chance to analyze a read aloud that they will be delivering (or observing as instructional leaders) in an upcoming Domain.
