According to the NJSLS, by fourth grade, 50% of students' reading should be informational text. Are your teachers ready for that shift? During this workshop, participants will explore this renewed emphasis on informational text, as well as unpack the Standards’ expectations for informational text and consider how best to integrate this into daily practice. Using sample performance tasks, participants will identify instructional implications for reading informational text in order to construct effective experiences for their own students. Participants will consider methods for infusing informational writing into their existing curricula.
