Creating the Space for Important Conversations: Fostering Critical Literacy Through Read Aloud and Accountable Talk
Real-life avid readers value time and opportunities to talk about the books they are reading. We know talk is an essential of reading instruction that helps children build comprehension skills. Learn more about how when teachers build the routines, tools, and space for read aloud and accountable talk, children grow conversation skills and comprehension skills that can lead them to have critical conversations about important topics.

This session is designed for teachers (or administrators/specialists) in Lower School (grades K-5).
