What are your favorite strategies for checking for understanding in the reading classroom? I’m excited to partner with the folks at Kids Discover for a special webinar taking place next week! On Tuesday, October 31st, I’m hosting a webinar titled “Checking for Understanding During Cross-Curricular Reading Activities.” This totally free webinar is designed to give you strategies to take back to your classroom or to the teachers you support. It will include actionable tips and ready-for-tomorrow ideas to help you check for understanding as students dive into text across the content areas.
Kids Discover is an award-winning library of science and social studies material that is accessible on any device, at any time. I love how it provides students and teachers with access to high-quality reading material that are perfect for reading across content areas. Kids Discover’s website includes lots of free content for students and teachers as well as plenty of extras for subscribers – such as assessment tools and access to the full library of resources. If your students are using Clever or Google accounts, Kids Discover has compatible single sign-on with these tools. You’ll also find interactive reading content at multiple Lexile levels so you can tailor materials to the needs of your students.
