Beyond Retelling: Navigating Complex Texts with Mitchell Brookins

Thursday, March 23, 2023
7:00–8:30 p.m. CDT


About the Event

How do teachers support students in navigating grade-level, complex texts? It requires a shift in mindset, planning, and practice. In this session, Mitchell will provide instructional routines related to fluency, vocabulary, syntax, and verbal reasoning. You will learn how to plan for and deploy teaching strategies that develop students’ capacity to go BEYOND RETELLING and move toward a deeper understanding of complex texts.
