Achievement 101 Institute: ELA (New York State Focus)

When implemented effectively, the Close Reading for Meaning™ method gives students the tools they need to accurately read, understand, and analyze any text they encounter with passion, confidence, and precision. This institute will teach teachers to build upon a strong foundation of Close Reading for Meaning™ to help their students successfully tackle high-stakes and end-of-year exams, whether on paper or on the computer.
