Shift the Lift: The Magic of Empowering Student Ownership

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Give students the keys to unlock the words in a text by exposing them to complex text worthy of their time and attention. Give students the power to think deeply in order to build knowledge and vocabulary.
This session will engage participants in why we should keep text at the center of instruction and how to shift the lift to allow the students to do the heavy lifting in reading and analyzing complex text. Get your students to “surrender to the text.”
