Class ACTS= Authors Collaborating with Teachers and Students
As authors we know how to read difficult texts closely so we get the main ideas, we know how to do research, and we know how to use what we learn to create books that make the subject inspiring and interesting for students. The CCSS and National Curriculum Standards are concerned with the nitty-gritty of how this is done. So by working with authors, you and your students begin to practice the process.
The shift to this kind of classroom work is what the CCSS are meant to foster. Our Class ACTS program is tailored to your curriculum and your school’s needs. Best of all, you have access to the author according to your schedule.
How is this possible? Through interactive videoconferencing and online, ongoing written conversations.
We combine the excitement of the author visit with real hands- on interaction and you may be able to arrange to receive professional development credits all in one fell swoop.
