Supporting all Learners - A Look at Text Complexity

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will focus on tools to support all learners in gaining information from material by adjusting the text complexity without altering the meaning of the text. Providing options for different levels of text allows students to gain information at a point where they can best comprehend the material while supporting vocabulary development and increasing grammatical structures. Participants will leave with a list of apps/extensions, websites, and AEA Online resources that support leveling of text.
