Workshops

  • Help All Readers Access Complex Text!: In this seminar, Frey and Fisher can provide whole schools with a professional learning experience in which participants, K-12, will learn step by step how to craft their own instructional plans around the 5 Access Points for Comprehending Complex Text:

    • Purpose & Modeling
    • Close & Scaffolded Reading
    • Collaborative Conversations
    • An Independent Reading Staircase
    • Performance
  • Rigorous Reading: Call it close reading, call it deep reading, call it analytic reading—call it what you like. By any name, it’s a level of understanding that students of any age can achieve with the right kind of instruction. In this seminar, participants will find an instructional plan articulated so clearly, and so squarely built on research, that teachers, schools, and districts need look no further.

    Attendees will be able to:

    • Engage students in repeated discussions to help students delve into an author’s ideas
    • Use text-dependent questions, prompts, and cues
    • Offer feedback and assessments that help students demonstrate understanding
