Rigorous instruction goes beyond skills-based practice; true rigor requires depth. For students to survive and get ahead in today’s world, they need to engage in complex cognitive tasks that extend past basic recall and understanding. But how do educators facilitate higher-order thinking among students with such limited time and resources? In this webinar, we’ll discuss how to create rich and robust learning experiences that teach students how to think critically while also saving teachers valuable classroom time.
Using ThinkCERCA’s guided close reading and academic writing lessons, standards-aligned content library, and built-in personalized learning tools, teachers can help students build the confidence to thoughtfully express their ideas. You’ll learn about the CERCA Framework—our research-based approach for teaching literacy across the curriculum—and simple strategies for designing and teaching rigorous instruction. We’ll also share how schools across the country are using ThinkCERCA’s personalized literacy platform to close the achievement gap and improve student growth on high-stakes tests and assessments.
