This session presents hands-on strategies for teaching students to use topic webs, two-column notes, and summarizing to support comprehension before, during, and after reading. Participants learn how to combine these reading/writing strategies to support close reading following a gradual release of responsibility model (I, We, You). These strategies are aligned with several Common Core standards related to identifying main ideas and supporting details and writing using sources.
