This 4-part series provides teachers in grades 5-12 an understanding of academic and disciplinary literacy through the study of evidence-aligned strategies that support deeper learning of core content within the disciplines. The information presented will be grounded in the science of reading, writing, and vocabulary instruction, with participants walking away with many tools and strategies to apply within many levels of an RtI system.

Participants will receive a copy of the book Thinking Reading: What Every Secondary Teacher Needs to Know about Reading by James and Dianne Murphy.
