"The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind."

- Kahlil Gibran

Teaching Beyond the Core is an annual series of three workshops designed to bridge core standards into explicit teaching prompts to meet the needs of students, focused on literacy instruction and learning. The 2017 series concentrates on guiding learners in K-12 through responsive literacy instruction. The topics for each workshop include:

  • Instructing literacy learners in assembling effective processing systems – Understanding literacy learning, defining, and leading literacy learners across grade levels.
  • Employing diverse texts to scaffold customized instruction – Redefining text for instruction, guiding learners through text instruction, reading for confluency, and developing a teaching language that supports literacy learning.
  • Constructing a collaborative learning environment – Establishing a community of literacy learners, cultivating independence, promoting writing, performance and presentation of literacy learners, and utilizing a framework for transdisciplinary literacy learning.
