Students today read daily on their digital devices, but they often skim through material without questioning or fact-checking. Join Shelly Sanchez Terrell for this hands-on, interactive workshop as she shares strategies to help learners critically evaluate digital reading materials, beyond just skimming. Participants will explore a variety of free resources and ideas to help your students annotate, evaluate, research, and question the material they read. You will also walk away with a toolkit of activities that will encourage adolescents and teens to read with a critical eye and support deeper reading.
