Course Description

As we teach our students how to make meaning from text, we often encounter two daunting situations: students who are capable, fluent readers but cannot comprehend and students whose comprehension suffers due to decoding and fluency issues. In this workshop, we will examine both types of readers and explore user-friendly strategies anyone can use to guide ALL students in their understanding of written and oral language regardless of their reading level. Because decoding and fluency greatly affect how our students think about text, we will explore strategies to build those systems in order to strengthen the thinking process. We will also discuss a variety of methods that teachers and specialists can use to teach comprehension strategies in the content areas, including math--one of the most perplexing areas for some students. You will leave the workshop with a range of techniques and lessons that will strengthen your struggling students' comprehension in all written and oral language.
