Skyrocket your students’ literacy skills with Kagan Structures! Come learn simple cooperative instructional strategies that make the Common Core English Language Arts Standards come to life.

Learn structures to improve critical reading skills for informational texts and literature. Your students will read in pairs and teams, draw inferences, explain events, and determine the main ideas. Improve student writing with peer writing and editing strategies. Use quizzing and coaching structures for students to practice the conventions of English and acquire vocabulary. Make the standards come to life with engaging whole-class, pair, and teamwork structures.
