     Training Subcategory

          Bullet The Text Set Project
Target group: K-12 teachers

Many students struggle to successfully read and comprehend grade-level text. Research suggests that a failure to grow sufficient vocabulary, and to develop a wide background knowledge, along with a lack of fluency, are all contributing factors. Text Sets support all learners by building these skills through a volume of reading on Science, Social Studies, and other high interest topics. This class will provide the research base for this approach as well as time and support to develop a series of Text Sets that you can implement right away with your students! Consider taking this class with your teammates as well as your school´s librarian to further enhance the experience and quality of materials that you develop.
