Windows and Mirrors: Building Deep Comprehension and Vocabulary Knowledge for All Children (preK-2)
This session will guide participants to use window and mirror texts to promote deep comprehension and vocabulary for all children (preK-2).

Then, specific examples of discussion moves and graphic organizers that support vocabulary learning, making connections, inference, and critical thinking while using window or mirror texts will be presented. Finally, participants will practice selecting window and mirror texts to meet their classroom needs, and plan discussion moves and graphic organizers to use with them to promote comprehension and vocabulary learning. These selections and plans will be shared and discussed. Feedback will be provided.
