Addressing the Knowledge Gap - 31616

The session will introduce the concept of the knowledge gap, including what it is, why it matters, and how it affects student achievement in reading and language arts classes. We will dive into the strategies to bridge the gap and improve student learning outcomes. Participants will learn how to incorporate a knowledge-rich curriculum into their reading and language arts instruction, including choosing high-quality texts, scaffolding learning, and building background knowledge. We will also explore the role of vocabulary instruction in improving reading comprehension and academic achievement. We will discuss best practices for implementing these strategies in K-12 classrooms throughout the session.
