Description

This webinar and investigation will identify ways to tap into informational texts that make texts readable, engaging, inviting, and at an appropriate level of complexity for each grade band. The presenters will focus on four strategies that promote the vision of complex text integration defined in the crossover of the Common Core State Standards and the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework. Reading as a form of inquiry will be at the heart of this investigation as presenters describe four different ways to use informational text to support inquiry: visual inventory, chunking/short texts, close reading, and exploration of multiple sources. The presenters will use these applications to explain steps toward increasing text complexity.
