Part of the Professional Teacher professional development series.
- This event is a repeat from November 14, 2022 (go to this event)
Reading comprehension is a skill that all students need, no matter what they are reading. Every content area depends on students understanding what they read, from text books, to articles, to literary text, to web resources. This means all teachers need to help students build comprehension skills and use strategies to understand.
Let’s look briefly at the research and then dig into actual fun instructional activities that help students not only comprehend texts but also gain strategies for understanding.
You won’t just learn about comprehension and about instruction. We will actually use and practice effective instructional activities that you can use with your students. We will learn by doing!
What About LETRS?
This workshop draws from the same body of research as LETRS. If you have received LETRS training, this workshop will deepen your understanding of the LETRS content and help you identify effective practices to make LETRS come alive in your classroom.
Who Should Attend?
This workshop is targeted at K–8 teachers.
On the other hand, if you teach older students—or if you teach in a specific content area—you will find valuable strategies to help students increase their comprehension, which they need at all grade levels and in all content areas.
