There is a missing link in reading comprehension—what is it? Learn about what comprehension processes are, the gap they fill in reading comprehension, and understand how to explicitly teach them to boost comprehension—especially for struggling readers and multilingual learners.
This edWebinar takes viewers through why comprehension processes—a collection of language and literacy skills that are critical for the creation of a mental model of text—are necessary for strong reading comprehension. Anne Lucas covers how all readers, especially students struggling with language comprehension, can benefit from instruction in comprehension processes, such as resolving anaphora and making gap-filling inferences. Viewers leave the session with the knowledge to utilize components of these instructional methods through teacher-led and digital-based activities with their at-risk and struggling readers.
This recorded edWebinar is of interest to teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders of the elementary school levels.
