Getting to a Deeper Understanding

Getting students to think at a higher level is, to say it lightly, a challenge.  However, when done, the reward is great.  In a recent webinar, Kathy Glass discusses her book  Complex Text Decoded: How to Design Lessons and Use Strategies That Target Authentic Texts.  In the discussion, she gives real-life ways to get to a deeper understanding of the types of texts we use everyday.  What's more is that these strategies can be used for a wide range of texts and across all subjects.  It is important to note that student engagement will also increase as teachers lead conversations to a deeper level.  This is something any teacher would wish for.  By following the strategies presented in the webinar, teachers can learn to become more deliberate about making these discussion occur with greater frequency in their classrooms.
