Overview

Once a reader has mastered foundational reading skills, comprehension of ever-increasingly complex texts becomes a main goal.

Is it the ability to "lose oneself" in a book? Is it being able to write about or discuss a text? Is it all of the above?

This online session will walk teachers through creating clarity around expectations for a reader's comprehension, including considering the work of a reader's head (ability) and heart (engagement). Participants will design assessments and instruction around specific comprehension goals, based on a clear and confident vision for readers. Participants completing this course will be awarded 10 CTLE hours.

Four 2-hour asynchronous modules, one released each week within the timeframe of the course:
