Making Complex Texts Compelling to Middle-School Students
This event takes place on Tuesday, May 12, 2015,
2 to 3 p.m. ET.
Webinar content provided by Amplify
With all the changes happening in middle school students’ lives, keeping them engaged can be challenging. How can you help them stay focused to develop the close-reading skills required by new, more rigorous standards? Amplify Learning’s Chief Executive Officer Larry Berger and Chief English Language Arts Officer Deborah Reck will discuss strategies for making great literature compelling for middle school students. They’ll share key insights on the best ways to help students make meaning of complex texts and get the motivation to dig more deeply, read more critically, and write more vividly about great literature and non-fiction. They will also address how to accomplish these same goals with English Language Learners, and how all of these strategies have been used to create Amplify’s all-digital core curriculum for middle school ELA.
