Closing the Knowledge Gap: Engaging Every Student with Complex Texts

Online Oct 10 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm - Eastern Time (US & Canada)

Price: Free


The ability to understand complex texts is a critical driver of college and career readiness. But how can we guarantee every student in our schools has the opportunity to build knowledge from complex texts, no matter their decoding ability or language proficiency? This edWebinar will establish a rationale for why educators should see complex texts as the starting point—not the end goal—of instruction for every student.

Attendees will explore how to balance complex, grade-level text with students’ individual reading needs in order to build the background knowledge and vocabulary essential to lifelong language comprehension.

This edWebinar will be of interest to middle and high school teachers and school and district leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
