Reading Between the Lines

Develop Deep Thinking While Reading in Every Subject!

Jefferson City, MO • January 2, 2019

For Educators of Grades K–5

Today’s standards demand students think more deeply about more complex texts and support their thinking with evidence from the text. Consequently, students are expected to deal with and understand authors’ ideas, not just the information stated directly in the text. This workshop provides you with simple, concrete activities and engaging structures that guide students to actively interact with texts—making the complex inferential process a habit of mind for all students. Applicable for all courses that include text content.

Create full student engagement with Kagan Structures—simple yet powerful cooperative learning instructional strategies. Supported by a large body of scientific research, and proven effective in countless classrooms, schools, and districts, this revolutionary way to teach is transforming teaching and learning. Come experience the power of Kagan Structures. See how easy it is use teamwork and pairs to create a greater level of engagement than you imagined possible, even for your reluctant learners. We're not talking about group work. We're talking the real deal, and knowing the difference is the difference between engaging some and engaging all students. When we engage all students, they all learn more. They have fewer discipline problems. And because the structures are so cooperative and interactive, they work wonders for students' social skill development. Come learn easy ways to use Kagan Structures as a part of every lesson, creating greater engagement, deeper understanding of the content, improved retention, and greater liking for class and content. Kagan will give you the Seven Keys to unlock the door to successful cooperative learning. If you want more fun in teaching, highly engaged students who love your classroom, and elevated test scores, this workshop is for you!
