Are your students’ literacy skills limiting their access to your content area? As the concepts and vocabulary in middle and secondary textbooks and digital resources become more specialized, and the vocabulary and concepts within them become more abstract, students need more sophisticated strategies for reading and comprehension. With this course, you can acquire practical strategies that can be used across grade levels and subject areas to build your students’ comprehension skills and help them succeed in your content area.
Learn how to:
• Create lessons that seamlessly integrate literacy development with your subject matter.
• Use strategies before, during, and after reading that increase student engagement in important content.
• Use assessment methods for a continuous view of student progress.
Featured presenters include Kathleen Hinchman, Ph.D., Carol Santa, Ph.D., and Richard Vacca, Ph.D.
