Inspiration and illumination come from reading deeply.
The quest for answers requires reading deeply and thinking critically. In this one day workshop, experience and examine the process of deep reading--probing, analyzing, synthesizing, looking for patterns, making connections, asking questions, noticing, pondering. Deep reading leads to deep thinking that results in deep meaning. Deep reading enables students to respond to open-ended questions.
Target grades: 6 through 12.
“I realized that reading is not about printed words; it is about thinking.
My students need to understand that.”
“I think I’ve had the cart before the horse,
teaching my students how to write the answers.
They need deep reading / deep thinking experiences.”
- Personally experience deep reading
