Comprehension Strategies that Motivate and Structure Students
Imagine a classroom that is teaming with engaged learners – students making connections, pulling out textual evidence, fully interested in the “meat” of the lesson. In this classroom, the standards are met insidiously, not overtly; thus making learning more engagin and complete. In this course, you will be provided with the tools that students need to comprehend the entire gamut of informational, persuasive, procedural, and narrative documents that make up our disciplines. Your students will become much better readers and thinkers in your subject field using engaging activities. You will be provided with fantastic short articles, explicit step-by-step lessons that will be aimed at enriching your students learning. Reading, annotating, decoding, collaborating, and utilizing the jigsaw technique will be covered. Perfect for all disciplines and grade levels!
