Big Potential: Reading, Writing and Researching in Clubs, 3-8 (No cost for TMI PLC or Literacy Alliance Members)

Big Potential: Reading, Writing and Researching in Clubs (3-8)

Researching is about WAY more than learning, paraphrasing, and organizing facts. Classroom research has truly big potential! Through collaborative research, we ignite the energy and excitement necessary for next-level learning. In this session, we will discuss using inquiry to spark interest, how to form groups using student-generated guiding questions, and ways to foster independence and accountability as clubs embark on their own research projects. Additionally, different methods of “going public” will be shared. There’s no doubt about it, the power of working together to create, build, make, or change something can never be underestimated!

PARTICIPANTS SHOULD BRING: A device, a notebook, and a text set that includes few credible sources.

Audience: All Grade 3-8 Teachers, Coaches and Administrators
Instructor: Mrs. Pamela Koutrakos, TMI/Gravity Goldberg, LLC Education Lead ELA/Literacy Specialist
