In this session, learn from two veteran teachers how they effectively integrate evidence-based reading strategies into science and social studies instruction. The presenters will share their approach to contextualized instruction that builds content knowledge and strengthens learner skills in the four components of reading: alphabetics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. 


    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • ABE English Language Arts, Social Studies and Science teachers

In this 90-minute webinar, we will show how we incorporate science and social studies themed units into the EBRI/STAR model at our program. We will demonstrate how we plan out each three- or four-week unit to build student's content-area knowledge and reading skills. Participants will receive sample science and social studies curriculum materials, including opener videos to pique student interest, as well as leveled fluency readings, and comprehension work. We will also share leveled alphabetics lessons and show how we carry the theme into our vocabulary groups.

Please note: You cannot access this session from the SABES website. You will receive an email from the ELA PD Center at World Education 1–2 days before the session with instructions on how to access the Zoom session.

Upon completion of the event, you will receive 1.5 PD hours in LACES.
