In this webinar with the Lawrence Hall of Science (which originally aired on October 20, 2016), Dr. Megan Goss explains how active reading supports student engagement in reading complex science text, makes reading a motivating, student-centered experience, and allows students to reveal genuine understanding and questions about the text.
