This PaTTAN webinar featuring Dr. Anita Archer focuses on five high-leverage practices that you can use in your classroom everyday and across multiple content areas. Dr. Archer takes the audience through each routine with lots of examples and opportunities for practice. Grounded in explicit instruction, Dr. Archer shows how foundational skills as well as higher-order critical thinking skills can be brought together in a dynamic and systematic approach to teaching and learning. If you are an elementary educator, do not be fooled by the title, as ‘Secondary’ in the United States is for students in Grades 6 – 12. However, the information and knowledge from this webinar can be used in any classroom, K-12.
This webinar supports the explicit teaching of a wide variety of literacy skills across multiple subject areas. Explicit teaching is essential in all areas of the Language Curriculum(s), and this webinar broadly supports the successful implementation of a variety of literacy skills using content areas (i.e. Science / Social Studies).
