Cris Tovani

Cris Tovani is an internationally known consultant who provides workshops on disciplinary literacy as well as assessment for learning. Her focus is modeling how to integrate literacy strategies into lessons so students can be better readers and writers of disciplinary text.  Having taught students in grades 1-12 for 34 years, Cris continues to study the “knowing-doing gap” by investigating how best practice research can be practically applied in a variety of learning situations.

She was awarded the 2017 Thought Leader award from the International Literacy Association and is the author of five books. Embracing a growth mindset, Cris loves sharing her successes and failures with colleagues as they work to serve students of all ages.

 

 

Removing the Masks of Disengagement:

Strategies That Hook Our Most Reluctant Learners

 

The best reading strategy in the world won’t work if students are disengaged. Now, more than ever before, students want authentic reasons to read, write, and discuss.  During this daylong workshop, Cris Tovani will share planning structures and literacy strategies to help content area teachers anticipate and remove learning roadblocks so that students are more engaged.  Cris will provide concrete ideas to re-engage students and improve the way they comprehend text.

 

Participants will work toward meeting for the following learning outcomes:

  • describe what full engagement looks like;
  • plan so that students are engaged in the work of my discipline (reading, writing, discussing, creating, performing, solving, researching…) for more minutes of the class period than I am talking;
  • provide reasons for students to read, write, and discuss in my content area;
  • model for students how to monitor and repair meaning when reading complex text.

 

 

A copy of Cris Tovani’s lastest book, Why Do I Have to Read This? (Stenhouse, 2020) can be purchased with registration and will be sent prior to the workshop.
