Each of these workshops provides a thorough examination and unpacking of the grade-specific Reading Standards. Throughout this process, participants will discuss and apply methods for incorporating the Framework for 21st Century Learning through the 4 C’s (creativity & innovation, critical thinking & problem solving, communication, and collaboration). During this workshop, participants will explore the Literature, Informational Text, and Reading Foundations (grades K-5 only) Standards. After examining each cluster of Standards, participants will engage in activities that highlight the differences between each grade level while focusing on classroom application. The workshop will conclude with the exploration of a nonfiction exemplar text (specific to each grade band) with the associated unit description, pacing chart, and twenty-five aligned activities.
