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 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.
