Mark your calendars, the Libens are coming. They will be presenting before Washoe educators on August 20th and to Striving Readers sites on August 21st.
Workshop participants will build on the learning from the February 2012 visit by David and Meredith Liben of Student Achievement Partners. Attendees will explore writing to sources; the importance of asking text-dependent questions for instruction and assessment; and will learn what constitutes strong CCSS aligned literacy instruction. The session will expand upon the work of the Core Task Project with specific attention to questions that have emerged from teachers and administrators.
