1. The Knowledge Gap Virtual Book Study

Program: RPDC - Agency for Teaching, Leading and Learning

Location: Virtual Training (-, -)

Dates: 3/23/2023 to 5/11/2023

Learn why background knowledge is such a critical - and often overlooked - component of science-based and equitable literacy instruction. Natalie Wexler argues that taking a more rigorous approach to reading and writing starts with focusing on content rather than skills taught in a vacuum. For students to understand complex texts, they must first understand the complexities of the world around them. This is a virtual book study and the book should be purchased prior to the first meeting.
