The new Common Core Standards require that teachers make a fundamental change in how and what they teach. All content teachers must now move from covering an immense amount of material (breadth) to covering less material much more deeply (depth). This change also impacts how students read. Rather than reading superficially to memorize details and cover the material,” students are now required to read a few sources on a central idea or theme deeply so that they may analyze and synthesize the material. This interactive workshop will show teachers how to make these changes by providing models of close reading instruction, vocabulary strategies for determining key words, and graphic organizers for annotating and outlining exemplars of Common Core texts.
