This course is recommended for ALL teachers, and focuses on research and exemplary practices that help students acquire strong reading comprehension skills. It provides participants with a synthesis of research base on reading comprehension instruction and vocabulary development. Participants examine, discuss, and evaluate the appropriate application of a range of instructional strategies from explicit to implicit teaching of comprehension skills. Strategies are presented for increasing student comprehension of both narrative and expository texts—including content area textbooks. In addition, approaches are presented to help students monitor their own comprehension and apply appropriate “fix‐up” strategies when comprehension is not achieved. Practice in using these instructional strategies and examples of student work are embedded in each unit.

Participants may earn 45 PLU’s or 3 credits from Trinity University.
