Science Learning from the Works of Scientists: Close Reading in the Secondary Science Classroom
June 20, 2018
Science Learning from the Works of Scientists:
Close Reading in the Secondary Science Classroom
Attention middle and high school science teachers: Join the Bakken Teacher Academy for a FREE full-day workshop!
In this workshop, teachers will develop a deeper understanding of key practices for Close Reading—and then apply this understanding to develop lessons for use in the science classroom. Topics covered will include selecting text, creating text-dependent questions, reading strategies that actively engage students with challenging text, and discussion techniques that promote engagement and meaning making.
Following the workshop, participants will have access to an online repository of texts for Close Reading and lessons created by science teachers who have participated in Bakken Teacher Academy workshops.
Facilitators: Betsy Stretch & Beth Murphy
Location: The Bakken Museum, 3537 Zenith Avenue South, Minneapolis
Lunch is included
Space is limited—sign up soon!
