Engaging Young Learners with Informational Text: A Multimedia Approach with MOLLY OF DENALI™

Course Description:

This self-paced course for preschool to grade 2 teachers provides a unique opportunity to view Engaging Young Learners with Informational Text: A Multimedia Approach with MOLLY OF DENALI™, an archive of the live PBS TeacherLine webinar that was authored and presented by Dr. Nell K. Duke on February 26, 2020.
The course introduces why and how to effectively engage young children with informational text using a variety of resources—including the acclaimed children’s television and video game resources from Molly of Denali. Informational text helps young children develop world knowledge, vocabulary, and comprehension skills. Rising expectations necessitate children spend a substantial amount of their literacy time on informational text, yet many teachers want to know more about how to use this text type. This is a great opportunity to learn effective ways to meaningfully engage your children with informational text.
Drawing from research and her knowledge of the Common Core State Standards and other standards documents, Nell K. Duke, Professor at the University of Michigan, will clarify what informational text is and provide targeted strategies for its use in the preschool to grade 2 classroom.

Note: This is a self-paced course accessible for one year after enrollment, and not eligible for graduate credit.
