No Limits: Transforming Literacy Through Content-Area Reading is designed to engage elementary through postsecondary educators in realizing what happens when we leverage reading in all content areas to eliminate literacy gaps. Educators will engage in diagnostic teaching opportunities that build students’ content-area reading skills to help minimize the divide that exists between students who read at grade level and those who do not. Participants will engage in collaborative activities to understand the importance of teaching reading in all content areas and how providing students with a variety of texts can expand their comprehension and content knowledge, experience AVID’s Critical Reading Process, and explore ways to gradually release the responsibility of the process to their students. This collaborative experience will empower every educator with the knowledge, strategies, and skills to develop a culture of reading for accessing rigorous content in all grade levels. Participants will engage in both synchronous and semi-synchronous learning. All strategies, digital activities, and digital tools experienced can be leveraged in face-to-face or virtual learning environments.
