Course Description:

Older students - even those who were excited by reading when younger - are often distracted by "other things" or find reading more of a challenge as they are faced with more complex texts for deeper meaning. Discover tactics that students can use to get started writing, suggestions for using digital graphic organizers, tips for writing a strong paragraph, and ways to support a clear argument with evidence. This toolkit contains webinars that discuss a variety of digital tools, websites, and strategies for enhancing literacy and enticing your secondary students to read and write.
