Teaching Reading Comprehension: I read it, but I don't get it!!


Have you ever said, or heard a colleague say, “My students can ‘read the words’ but they just don’t understand what they are reading”? This class offers an overview of the reading comprehension process, outlines primary comprehension strategies, and explores instructional techniques that can help students become proficient in using those strategies to understand and appreciate both narrative and expository texts.

Goals & Learning Outcomes:

  • Differentiate between reading comprehension and decoding.
  • List the primary reading comprehension strategies proficient readers use.
  • Differentiate between a strategy (used by the learner) and a teaching technique (used by the teacher to help the learner develop strategies).
  • Design lessons that introduce and support reading comprehension strategies to children in your classroom or instructional setting.

Non-Credit classes start at $99, and are typically available online. In addition to gaining professional skills, this is a perfect opportunity to acquire recertification points, professional development credits, or continuing education units (CEU’s).
