10D Gradūs Parvī: Creating Tiered Readings for Any Level of Instruction

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

After a brief introduction to the ACTFL interpretive reading proficiency standards and the theory behind creating tiered reading passages of a text, workshop participants will be divided into groups depending on the level they are most interested in working with (beginner, intermediate, or advanced) in order to produce a completed tiered text collaboratively. Tiered texts, often called embedded readings, provide a scaffolded approach to reading comprehension which afford the opportunity for learners of any ability level to find success and interact meaningfully with the text. A quality tiered text offers built-in differentiation in a way that no static text or traditional commentary can provide. At the conclusion of the workshop, all materials will be shared with participants digitally so that everyone will have access to multiple tiered texts to use in their classrooms immediately.
