Writing Across Multiple Texts: The Role of Intertextual Studies within CCSS

Check back for upcoming dates!

This workshop is designed to support the use of multiple, high-demand texts and student writing across sources. Aligned to CCSS standards for English language arts and literacy, the workshop will emphasize text-based instruction with integrated cycles of reading, writing, and discussion of informational sources.

Workshop attendees will explore the role of scaffolding within complex texts, compare perspectives across authors, analyze authors’ craft, consider task sequencing, and much more.

As in all Inquiry By Design workshops, teachers work through the exercises “as learners” and use Inquiry By Design curriculum to experience a realistic portrayal of what CCSS truly looks and feels like, supported by extensive peer collaboration and writing.

Attendees will gain

  • A deep understanding of close reading.
  • Successful approaches to handling complex, informational texts.
  • Understanding of CCSS and working across multiple texts.
  • Comprehensive analysis of primary and secondary sources.

Sign up today. You’ll walk away with a deep understanding of what teachers and students should be saying and doing in a model CCSS classroom and applicable practices to bring to any classroom.

Space is limited, so reserve your seat now.
