In this interactive and collaborative course, I will share research-based strategies and over 23 years of experience demonstrating how giving students’ choices of disciplinary text can motivate and engage the developing reader. For many students, disciplinary reading has been a mysterious concept that they have never quite mastered. Usually textbooks readings are assigned beyond their lexile level. As a result, students become frustrated, sometimes affecting their classroom behavior. Let’s offer them choices for disciplinary reading and opportunities for Accountable Talk to help motivate and engage them toward success!
