Full course description

This course designed for ALL teachers - Math, Science, Social Studies, and the Arts - will focus on how content-area teachers can successfully incorporate reading and writing into their disciplines. This course will dive into strategies for close reading and how to guide students to become independent readers of discipline-based text. We will discuss effective routines for engaging students in the writing process and will address how to assess both the writing and the content. Participants who complete this hybrid (in person and online) course will receive 1 CPS Lane Placement Credit and 15 ISBE Professional Development Hours. In order to receive Lane Placement Credit and Professional Development Hours, participants must complete all in person and online requirements. This professional development course aligns to the CPS Framework for Teaching components 1a, 1c, 1d, 1e, 3c, 3d, and 4d.
