Supporting Implementation of the Next Generation ELA and Math Standards [clear filter]
Thursday, May 24
 

9:15am

Re-imagining Text Sets for 21st Century Learning and Literacy
As we prepare all of our diverse learners to develop the sophisticated advanced literacy skills needed to meet the academic, civic and workplace demands of the 21st century, we recognize the important role that technology plays in instructional design. In this session, teachers will learn how the ready-to-implement strategy of text sets infuses literacy skills aligned to the Next Generation English Language Arts Standards and 21st-century society. Text set activities created on the KidOYO virtual space provide students with a personalized learning experience that builds their conceptual knowledge of a particular content while at the same time empowers them to develop their argumentative and conversational skills through creative and reflective problem-solving. The use of text sets allows teachers to support students’ individual learning needs by offering engaging and leveled texts, texts that represent diverse learning styles and preferences, and by embedding key focus questions that support specific reading and writing skills. Presenters will share examples of how teachers in the Mineola School District currently implement these text set activities to promote self-regulated, 21st century learning for all learners, thus enhancing the district’s mission of lifelong learning.
