Experience firsthand a literacy methodology that thousands of teachers have called “transformative.” Working with a range of texts, from Adichie to Alvarez to Shakespeare, practice the core principles and strategies of a radically equitable and effective way of teaching texts in secondary classrooms. Learn how to get every single student not only understanding but also speaking back to a vast range of texts. Walk through the most essential strategies for getting ALL students thinking deeply about words and ideas, making inferences and interpretations, and feeling confident in their ability to grapple with complexity. With these language-based techniques, any student can make meaning from any text—all on their own.
