FREE NEW WEBINAR May 23, 2013 4:00pm (EST)

Maryellen Rooney Moreau, MEd, CCC-SLP, will present: "The Common Core meets Charlotte Cavatica: Strengthening the Web of Connections Between Narrative & Information Text Using Children's Books."

Reading the title of this webinar one might be curious; who is Charlotte Cavatica? This is the name given to one of the main characters in "Charlotte's Web" by E.B. White. "Charlotte A. Cavatica" is a barn spider, and the scientific term for barn spider is Araneus cavaticus (Charlotte's middle initial stands for "Aranea"). "Charlotte's Web" is an exemplar text in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) K-5. The author knew a large amount of information about farms, farm animals and spiders which was demonstrated even in his choice of characters names! In this webinar, the presenter will use this text with Story Grammar Marker® and ThemeMaker® methodologies, to demonstrate oral language, critical thinking, perspective-taking, problem solving, argument and opinion. The connections between narrative and information (expository) text will be mapped and discussed, which can assist students in meeting grade-level CCSS.
