Power Understanding 1-Day Institute

Details

In this Institute, Adrienne will explain the “Powerful Thinking” model and how it can be used to help students read, connect and reflect to deepen their understanding of themselves, others and the world. Adrienne’s new book (Powerful Understanding) explores effective ways to build social-emotional skills as well as promoting critical thinking – two important core competencies of our new curriculum. For those familiar with the Adrienne’s Reading Power strategies, you will see how she has integrated them into this model to extend and deepen learning. Adrienne will spend the first part of this workshop revisiting some of the key concepts of Reading Power and later, show how she took this foundation of “deep understanding of text” to “deep understanding of learning”. Adrienne will share lessons and student samples and, as always, you will come away with a list of great new anchor books! Come to this session and leave inspired and ready to teach your students to think critically and reflectively AND be confident, compassionate and caring citizens!
