Tips & Reminders:

Students need to create and critically consume and gain skills in digital literacy.

Give students opportunities to discuss and explain to you their understanding and have them set goals within the process.

Convene small groups of students together and facilitate discussion so that students can present and explain their work and learning progress.

Have students go directly into the text to support/provide evidence.

HPLC: High Progress Literacy Classrooms…monitor the amount of time students are actually spending READING and WRITING
