Trick...or Treat?: Reading Strategies for Middle and High School that

Encourage Confidence, Curiosity, and Ownership (Grades 6-12)

An Offering of the TMI/Gravity Goldberg, LLC Literacy Alliance

They’re responding, they’re discussing, they’re writing, but did they even open the book? The rise of online “reading assistance” resources like Sparknotes and Shmoop, coupled with the increasing pressure on middle and high school students to achieve the highest grade possible and the constant distraction of an on-demand culture, has created a classroom reality far scarier than the creepiest ghouls and goblins Halloween could produce! In this session, participants will be challenged to confront this monster head-on, rethinking literacy approaches to ensure everyone is treated to a great read...and no teachers get tricked! 

Audience: Grade 6-12 Teachers, Administrators, Coaches, Teacher Leaders;
Instructor: Matt Morone; TMI/Gravity Goldberg, LLC Lead Secondary ELA Literacy Consultant
Location: Ramapo College of NJ; Trustees Pavilion - Room 2
