WebinHours – Supporting Arizona’s Common Core Implementation
Join the K – 12 Academic Standards group, as they present a series of free 'WebinHour' trainings to introduce you to a variety of topics. The WebinHours will support the implementation of Arizona’s Common Core Standards. Arizona Department of Education staff will be conducting the webinars. All you need is a computer with internet access to participate in the WebinHour.
In this one hour web-in-hour overview of text complexity, participants will examine the three components of text complexity; The Quantitative Measures, Qualitative Measures and the Reader and Task Considerations. Participants will work with the PARCC Text Analysis Worksheet and begin to understand the criteria and descriptors for determining if text is Readily Accessible, Moderately Complex or Very Complex. Participants will also learn some scaffolds for assisting readers as they begin to read more complex texts.
The intended audience is Teachers, Coaches, and Specialists. It would be helpful to attend this webinar with a partner to facilitate discussion.
