Laura Blackburn, Associate Editor, TIME For Kids
The Common Core Standards place emphasis on paired texts, asking students to “analyze how two or more texts address similar themes or topics.” But where can teachers find engaging, appropriate, high-quality pairs of articles? And how can teachers make the most of these articles through lessons and assignments without having to dig through resources?
In this webinar from TIME For Kids, experts will provide examples of pairing current events articles with primary source documents, as well as articles on debate-worthy topics, written from different points of view. Speakers will also share teaching ideas and provide free graphic organizers teachers can use to support the analysis of these paired texts.
While the session will have a special focus on resources and teaching ideas for fifth through eighth grade, all teachers interested in using paired texts to build student knowledge and to compare the approaches authors take should attend. The goal of the webinar is to support educators as they work to develop confident critical readers by providing easy-to-implement solutions for modern classrooms.
All webinar participants will receive high-interest paired texts and 10 free graphic organizers to support the analysis of these texts.
