December 2014 NTI: Grades 3-8 ELA Turnkey Kit for Teachers Session 4

Teacher with student

Session 1: Designing Supplemental Lessons Using Authentic Texts and Tasks


150 minutes


This session will prepare participants to align extended learning experiences, such a “fieldwork” to a museum, actually align with the Common Core and support all students through rigorous work. In this session participants will actually experience “fieldwork” and compare it to traditional “field trips.” They will learn how authentic fieldwork can create a compelling need for students to read, analyze, and write drawing from complex texts.
