As the state makes the switch from Sunshine State Standards towards the Florida Standards for College and Career Readiness, there will be shift in what is now considered “text.” With this shift in the definition of “text,” the world of multi-media has been opened up for us. However, as educators we will need to do more than dispense this media to passive consumers; we will need to provide students with the tools and training to delve deep into interacting with media. There will be an increase focus on rigorous standards and student experiences with high-level informational texts at earlier and earlier ages. Providing strategies to meet these needs is the focus of this session. Participants will receive strategies to deepen understanding and a quick example of how each strategy could be used with a piece of digital media.
