PD Content: what do you want teachers to be able to do?

  • Students – to be able to think and talk deeply about texts (respond to texts)
  • Therefore, teachers need to be able to structure the lessons so that students know how they can talk to each other in ways that prompt thinking about the ideas of the text.
  • HLTP – setting up small group work & leading a classroom discussion
  • This is important so that students in cycle II begin to understand that they need to think about what they’re reading and seeing (images) to understand at more than a literal level.
  • It looks like students really looking carefully at the pictures and the text and talking about what they notice and what it might mean.
