This workshop is designed for teachers to experience a variety of elements and resources which increase student understanding of text.
Participants will explore explicit teaching strategies and assessment tools designed to deepen student understanding of the three levels of reading comprehension: Level 1 – Surface level understanding (what does the text say), Level 2 – Deeper understanding (what does the text not say, and what does it imply or infer), and Level 3 – Thinking about the text (how does it say this through analyzing and critiquing).
