1. Demystifying Comprehension Asynchronous Course - REGISTER BY 1.06.21

Program: Asynchronous Sessions

Audience: Grades 3-12 Teachers

Dates: 1/11/2021 to 2/5/2021

Meeting Times: Zoom / Schoology (Instructor will provide registrants with access information prior to the session start time.)

Overview

Once a reader has mastered foundational reading skills, comprehension of ever-increasingly complex texts becomes a main goal. Comprehension, being comprised of the invisible thinking work of a reader, can often be a gray area for explicit instruction. Is comprehension the ability to answer questions about a text? 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.

Please see the structure and expectations for the course below:

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

- Module 1: Released January 11

- Module 2: Released January 18

- Module 3: Released January 25

- Module 4: Released February 1

Two 30-minute individual Zoom coaching sessions (coordinated by instructor and participant.)

- One-hour Zoom group session (date/time to be determined by group)

Outcomes:

- Differentiate the strands of thinking any reader uses to process any text
