Gravity Goldberg “Inspiring Independent Readers” Webinar [Archive]

Independent Readers

On Monday January 25th, Gravity Goldberg led a packed webinar on EdChat Interactive called “Inspiring Independent Readers.” Rigor, complex text comprehension, deeper engagement—it’s time to read between the lines of these goals to see that the only way we’ll reach them is to have a strong plan in place for creating fully independent readers. In this webinar Gravity helps educators better understand why we may be cultivating compliant readers rather than independent readers, and why compliance gets in the way of lasting learning. Without independence no real and lasting learning can occur. You’ll better understand what gets in the way of independence and what we can do as teachers to support students.
