Students today need skills that will help them become college and career ready and successful participants in a global economy. This meetup will help educators discover how to leverage ThinkCERCA, a literacy tool created by educators for educators, to help students develop critical thinking and literacy skills.

Participants will engage in a close reading activity followed by a Socratic seminar to experience the learning process from a student’s perspective. Current educators will share their journey and best practices for engaging students to read, write and think more critically.
