Have you been finding that your students are relying too heavily on the teacher to help them interpret the deeper meanings of texts? How do we guide students toward more independence with deeper thinking about the texts they are reading? Join us for a workshop in which we will discuss strategies for building independence and higher level thinking about the texts we are reading. We will explore basic inferring strategies as a foundation on which to build deeper interpretations. Interpretation strategies we explore will include ways to help students generate their own initial ideas about texts, then test out their ideas using text evidence, then revisit/rethink based on other possible viewpoints.
