In this series of videos, I explore with participants my strategies for helping students develop the capacity to analyze and digest complex texts. I begin with using subject matter that is meaningful to students, then take them through a series of exercises that force them to visit and revisit content and provide evidence to support their arguments.
Part Two: Intentional Analysis
In part two of the workshop, I ask participants to share their observations about the pictures of school lunches. Then I summarize what I’m modeling: students think about a subject and the statements they are forming, put them on paper, test them out on others, then add to them.
