May the circle be unbroken!!!!! Although we have heard it many times, have you ever truly visualized a circle and its strength?
Why Full Circle Language Arts?
Successful communicators use every aspect of communication…reading, writing, speaking, and listening….therefore there is no ending, and there is no beginning to great communication! It is forever, continuous, and balanced.
Communication fits into our everyday lives, no matter how we use it…in relationships, in school, and in our jobs.
Successful communication takes us every place we’ve ever been and every place we will ever go!
Welcome to Full Circle Language Arts!
So let’s take a look at Full Circle Language Arts, another aspect of the communication experience!
This comprehensive seminar introduces all the pieces of Language Arts: Reading Comprehension, Written Response, Editing and Revision. Now imagine a teacher training in which the whole circle, the Full Circle, is addressed! That’s exactly what you will find in the in-person Full Circle Language Arts Teach BIG training! Then, add to all of that the motivational piece that ties it all together which leads into Research and Inquiry! We aren’t kidding! It can all be accomplished in a 2-day training! The first day is teaching all of the information, and the second day is learning how to implement it within a classroom setting. If teachers desire deeper training in any of the Language Arts aspects, we also offer virtual courses, in-person trainings, and Zoom trainings in every area mentioned above. Guess what? Teachers even receive CPE credit for all three types of delivery. With so many ways to obtain the best training in the world, why wait any longer? Join our circle of friends and call us today to see how we can help your campus! May the circle be unbroken!
Sounding words out is one thing. Truly understanding what you have read is entirely different. Teach BIG teaches students how to comprehend in a way that is designed to last forever. As we utilize all of the learning styles as we tackle the following concepts: character development, theme, main idea, summary, emotional change, and inferencing using implicit and explicit details. You’ll also be thrilled to know that we teach the analysis of how to decipher what a question is actually asking, and then we teach a process to analyze various types of answer choices. Did you know that there are several intentional distractions that appear in answer choices? No worries! We address those as well!
Whether your students need help learning how to respond in writing to brief answer responses, constructed responses, or extended answer responses, Teach BIG is your solution. You’ll be excited to explore proven methods for idea development, character development, introductions, and conclusions. Leave no stone unturned as you take your students through a true writing journey!
The difference between the types of sentences is the most important piece of the editing part of the circle. Knowing what a simple, compound, and complex sentence is can be the difference between successful written communication and communication that confuses the reader. Learning parts of speech, grammar rules, and sentence structure is now among students’ favorite parts of their day! Believe me when I say that all of this can be accomplished through kinesthetic activities, chants to help retain information, and symbols that store in the brain for a lifetime!
Rearrange? Exchange? Add? Delete?
Those are the questions. What are the answers? Once students know the difference between the types of revising questions, they can conquer the strategies needed to answer the question. Buckle your seats belts for one of the most eye-opening pieces of the circle! This seminar teaches the types of revising questions and the types of answer choices that accompany them.
