Snow Dates: March 17, 18, 2017
Times: Fridays 6:00pm-10:00pm; Saturdays 8:30am-4:30pm

The focus of this course is reading comprehension instruction. We will study factors that influence reading comprehension including reading fluency, word meaning (semantics), sentence structure (syntax), text organization, discourse structure and meta-cognitive processes to help us understand underlying components of reading comprehension. We construct a model to link reading comprehension processes, and use it both to recognize and interpret language and reading comprehension difficulties, and to develop a larger toolbox of strategies for explicitly teaching reading comprehension to diverse learners. We will review current research on reading fluency, vocabulary, and reading comprehension instruction.
