Most reading experts agree that there are strands of thinking a reader carries out when deeply comprehending text. These strands work together simultaneously to engage a reader's head and heart.

This 1-hour webinar will share strategies that lend themselves to the strands of thinking required for deep comprehension, including: - strategies for both narrative and expository texts

- strategies that bolster the use of text evidence when writing/speaking about text
