One of our goals as language arts teachers is for students to deeply understand why we do what we do as readers, writers, speakers, listeners, and viewers. We want our students to be able to take this understanding and transfer it to new and more complex contexts in school and in their lives outside of school. In this session, you will learn why concepts are the key to unlocking deep understanding and transfer and where to find concepts in your curriculum. This practical, hands-on session serves as a first introduction to teaching concepts in language arts and will set the foundation for future learning.
