Focused Instruction for College Readiness
Your students read—but can they read closely and analytically? Your students write—but can they write clear and detailed arguments based on textual evidence? Reading to Write models best practices for teaching close reading and argumentative writing using complex exemplar texts and helps elementary and middle school teachers in any subject incorporate literacy and comprehension lessons into real-life applications.
Reading to Write also helps teachers differentiate instruction in small groups with supplemental materials and provides professional development support to address the deeper challenges of college- and career-readiness standards in reading, writing, and comprehension.
Reading to Write is accompanied by professional development, training and support, including:
• One full-day professional development seminar, plus job-embedded coaching and webinars
• Teacher manuals with lesson plans, rubrics, student organizers, and tools for differentiated instruction
• Five multi-day lesson frameworks per grade level, with complex texts and activities
