This course focuses on the research and instructional practices that help students acquire strong reading comprehension skills. It provides participants with research on comprehension instruction and vocabulary development. Participants examine, discuss and evaluate the application of a wide range of instructional strategies for teaching comprehension skills to use with both narrative and expository text and subject matter text books. It also demonstrates how students can monitor their own reading progress and apply appropriate strategies when comprehension is not achieved.
Participants may earn 45 PLU’s or 3 graduate credits from Trinity University.
