You don’t have to do it on your own! In this session, presenter Kevin Baird, Chairman of the Board at the nonprofit Center for College and Career Readiness, provided educators with specific strategies to engage students in selecting their own stretch texts from electronic titles, as well as pragmatic tools and priority steps to evaluating your own resources and lessons. The priority steps include planning the difficulty level and the length, but also thinking about how the texts will be used.  It is important that students are able to read these texts independently at some point, so Kevin shares a technique for developing a routine.  View the webinar to learn about the important considerations you should be making when implementing stretch texts.
